first_imgSame designers led Burlington’s waterfront renewal The same firm that helped lead the revitalization efforts along Lake Champlain in downtown Burlington, Vermont has been selected by the city of Henderson, Kentucky, for a similar effort. Stantec’s North Springfield, Vermont office (known as The Cavendish Partnership during the Burlington project) is part of a team hired to design improvements to the city’s Ohio River waterfront.  The city commission voted unanimously to hire Stantec to design an extension of the existing River Walk including riverbank stabilization efforts and continued work on a new tennis complex, as well as the archeological and environmental analyses and reviews needed to move forward with improvements. The project is led out of Stantec’s Louisville, Kentucky, office.“Just as we saw in Burlington, revitalizing a community’s waterfront dramatically affects the vitality and character of the area,” says Stephen Plunkard, a principal at Stantec in North Springfield. “We are thrilled to be able to bring that experience to Henderson and work with our talented colleagues in Kentucky.”Henderson’s riverfront effort began in 2002 when a new boat launch, parks, welcome center, and other attractions were added along the banks of the Ohio River. Stantec will be leading Phase III of the project, which is expected to extend the existing riverside pathway, improve site infrastructure, stabilize the riverbanks, and eventually add features such as public restrooms, a boat dock, dog park, community room, and farmers’ market building.Stantec has designed dozens of waterfront projects in Vermont and across the United States.Stantec provides professional consulting services in planning, engineering, architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, surveying, environmental sciences, project management, and project economics for infrastructure and facilities projects.
