Guy Flintoft [square]Stantec has appointed Guy Flintoft as head of later living for the United Kingdom. 

Flintoft has worked in planning for more than 25 years and has extensive policy expertise in the private and public sectors. Earlier in his career he spent a decade working as a director at Barton Willmore, a company Stantec acquired in 2023.

Flintoft has also been director of public policy and planning at Pegasus Homes, a national retirement and care housing developer and operator, and then he moved to Retirement Villages Group to be planning and design director.

He rejoins Stantec and his colleagues to help coordinate and grow the presence and capacity of the firm’s later living practice across Stantec’s UK offices. Flintoft will lead Stantec’s UK strategy for the retirement sector while promoting the firms’ expanding client offering nationwide.

Flintoft said: “Properly planning for later living is the most essential factor in futureproofing our communities and supports everyone’s long-term quality of life. We need to change the perception of what this stage of our lives looks like, empowering developers and operators to create more suitable, aspirational places that keep people together, prevent isolation, bring about better experiences, and improve wellbeing.”
