Stantec adds to its transportation, environmental services team

Posted on September 19, 2018

Gilberto (Gil) Ruiz joined global engineering, architecture, consulting, and construction firm Stantec as principal environmental planner, joining the Environmental Services team in Los Angeles, Calif. Ruiz will manage the firm’s preparation of environmental compliance documents and focus on growing Stantec’s transportation and water sector practices in Southern California.

With more than 25 years of experience working across a wide variety of project types including residential, commercial, public works, and transportation, Ruiz has an advanced knowledge of both National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) documentation.

Ruiz joins Stantec from ICF International, where he served as a sr. project manager for the firm’s Los Angeles-focused environmental planning business. His experience includes the development of customized mitigation monitoring programs for complex and often controversial projects throughout Southern California. Ruiz’s familiarity with state and federal Clean Water Act and Endangered Species Act compliance requirements has allowed him to efficiently process permits under both acts.

Ruiz has served as project manager on a number of challenging projects, including the first phase of the California High-speed Rail System project designed to bring high-speed rail service to the urban Los Angeles area. As deputy project manager, Ruiz oversaw the proposal of three alignments along the approximately 40-mile corridor connecting the Antelope Valley to the San Fernando Valley, including station proposals at the Palmdale Transportation Center and near the Hollywood Burbank Airport. In his role, he was responsible for project management and oversight of various technical studies in support of the large scale project.
