 December 14, 2012 10:36 AM

(By Balaseshan) Stantec Inc. (NYSE: STN) continues to strengthen its presence in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States with the acquisition of the assets of survey and mapping firm Landmark Survey and Mapping Inc. (LSM).

Based in Washington, Pennsylvania, the 24-person firm specializes in surveying and mapping for oil and gas pipelines, a growing area of focus for Stantec. LSM employs licensed land surveyors and associated technicians with experience in all aspects of surveying and mapping, particularly in the oil and gas and power markets.

LSM has worked on surveys for all sizes and types of pipelines, using state-of-the art equipment such as electronic data collectors, global positioning systems, prism-less total stations, single- and multi-beam echo sounders, and 3D laser scanning. Their projects cross the United States, including work in Texas, Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.

In addition, Stantec closed the acquisition of Maryland-based Greenhorne & O''Mara, a 520-person transportation, environment, and infrastructure and design firm based in Laurel, Maryland. The addition further expands Stantec's presence and services across the US Atlantic coast, particularly in the transportation sector and with the US federal government.
