Creating a Place to Swim in the Charles River

The Charles River Conservancy has been advocating for more active, attractive and accessible parklands along the Charles River for years, and this advocacy has included the topic of swimming in the Charles. The Conservancy identified areas of potential swimming facilities and reached out to the skill-based volunteer program at Stantec for help in assessing the feasibility of building a swimming area. This study was an initial step in a new program of community service for Stantec professionals. Stantec’s Boston office piloted a program through which designers and engineers volunteered their professional skills to assist non-profit organizations on community-based projects.

The panel will discuss the collaboration between Stantec and the Conservancy, aftermath of the feasibility study, current and future plans for the Swimmable Charles project. Panelists: Jennifer Gilbert (Board of Directors, Charles River Conservancy), Audrey Cropp (Stantec Project Coordinator), Thu Ngan Han, Adam Fearing and Kevin Beuttell (Stantec team members)
