FST has signed a letter of intent to join Stantec

August 27, 2015

See press release here.

After 101 years of memorable projects and dedicated client service, we have taken a major step toward joining a team that unites more than 15,000 employees working in more than 250 locations. It's an exciting future not only for Fay, Spofford & Thorndike, but for you, our valued clients.

First, know that our relationship with you is our number one priority. That's why you will continue to see the same people, doing business with you the same way, and with the same goal: deliver the highest level of service while always striving to exceed your expectations with our promise of design excellence, responsiveness and personal attention.

Why are we planning to join Stantec? It's the obvious next step for us in an industry that is changing rapidly. With the vast resources of a highly respected global firm behind us, we will have access to a stronger base and depth of technical knowledge and resources, a greater breadth of relationships and an increased ability to provide innovative, cutting-edge solutions to best meet the needs of your project goals.

We have had many companies approach us about merging and selling. Stantec is the first that offered the cultural compatibility that we needed to make such a monumental move. We have teamed with Stantec on award-winning projects, including the Logan International Airport Runway 33L Safety Area pictured above, so it's a familiar and comfortable relationship. Their "Community First" philosophy aligns perfectly with how we've always approached our business, our clients and our projects. We are thrilled about this tremendous opportunity for our people and for the clients we proudly serve.

Visit and you'll see first-hand how Stantec designs with community in mind. If you would like to discuss any aspect of this exciting development with me or one of your primary contacts in our firm, please call (781-221-1000) or email

Thank you for your trust and commitment to FST through the years. We look forward to continuing our mutually beneficial relationship in the years to come.
