Craig D Sklenar, AICP

  • Senior Urban Designer – Stantec Consulting Ltd.
  • Ottawa, ON

Urban Planner/Designer, specializing in Transit Development, Urban Regeneration, and Brownfield Redevelopments.

Like any good storyteller, Craig sees the big picture—he knows the context and has the foresight of where the story is going. As an urban designer with Stantec's Urban Places Group, storytelling plays a big role on his projects. He uses stories from residents, clients, and stakeholders to help craft a design that is a physical manifestation of their biggest ideas and their immediate needs. Craig’s international expertise focuses on projects that prioritize placemaking, urban regeneration and vibrancy of the urban realm at a variety of scales and scopes, but always focuses on the outcomes and works with an interdisciplinary team to execute the vision.
