A common thread in Whitlock’s experience is a focus on pedestrian-scaled buildings and urban placemaking. Whitlock joins Stantec from the City and County of Denver’s Community Planning and Development, where he led urban design projects and gained an intimate understanding of the city’s people and processes. Under Whitlock’s direction, urban designers led placemaking studies for projects throughout Denver, such as 16th Street Mall’s $130 million reconstruction.
“My conviction is to create walkable, economically strong neighborhoods that are activated by pedestrian-oriented development,” Whitlock said. “I am eager to apply my experience to the Practice Leader role at Stantec. I look forward to collaborating with a team of talented designers to deliver exceptional work to our clients and communities.”
"Jason is a talented architect with extensive expertise in urban design and planning," said Christopher Wilson, Stantec Vice President and US West Regional Business Leader of Buildings. "He is a tremendous addition to our Buildings team, and we look forward to utilizing his decades of experience to help our clients execute impactful projects in the communities we serve."
Whitlock received a Master of Architecture from Tulane University and attended Edinburgh College of Art and Architecture.
