Global design firm Stantec recently appointed Beth Tomlinson to Carbon and Climate Discipline Leader for their global Buildings practice. She will lead the company’s Carbon Impact Team, a cross-disciplinary group of specialists that applies building science and design solutions to rapidly reduce carbon emissions in the built environment, increase resilience against climate risks, and have a positive impact on the socio-ecological health of our communities.

Tomlinson has 20 years of experience in research and building design, resiliency services, commissioning, and energy auditing. In her new role, she is focused on integrating climate change mitigation and adaptation, commissioning, and energy transitions within a variety of project types—including healthcare, municipal, education, mixed-use, commercial, industrial, and transportation.

Throughout Tomlinson’s career, she has demonstrated a sustained trajectory of innovation and leadership. She is a member of the State of Minnesota’s Resilience and Adaptation Action Team. She is a Steering Leader for the Minnesota Resiliency Collaboration, and Regional Vice Chair for the Governmental Affairs of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).

“Guided by her passion for sustainable design, Beth will help our clients reduce their environmental impacts and adapt to continued climate change,” said Anton Germishuizen, Stantec’s senior vice president for Buildings. “Her expertise in building performance engineering and energy management will be leveraged as Beth leads our Carbon Impact Team and spearheads our commitments to prioritize carbon neutral buildings, landscapes, and material selections.”

Tomlinson holds a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering from Marquette University. She is a registered Professional Engineer in Minnesota, Florida, Virginia, and Connecticut. Additionally, she is LEED accredited and holds credentials as a Building Commissioning Provider (BCxP).
