The Applied Science Technologists and Technicians of BC (ASTTBC) awarded McElhanney's Rob Bedard with this year's Professional Achievement Award. The award, presented on November 14 in Vancouver, recognized his accomplishments in his field and his contributions to the well-being of the community.

Rob Bedard, AScT, EngL, is a Technical Transportation Lead in Vancouver and has been with the company since 1989. Over the years, Rob has managed dozens of intersection and highway widening and realignment projects all over BC, including portions of the design-build Sea to Sky Highway and Port Mann Highway 1 Improvement projects. Rob has been active at the Board level with ASTTBC for many years as well as with a local non-profit in Langley.

Selena Wilson, PEng is the 2015 recipient of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists-BC (APEG-BC) Young Professional Award. She was presented with this honour on October 16 at the President's Awards event in Kelowna, BC.

Selena has been with McElhanney since 2002. Selena's past accomplishments include her work on the detailed designs for design-build / P3 projects including the Golden Ears Bridge northern approach roadway, the Horseshoe Bay Interchange for the Sea to Sky highway, and the Port Mann/Hwy 1 On-Shore Design Project. She has been active in many volunteer organizations, including Women in Science and Engineering, and has served as chair of the young professionals' forum steering committee for FIDIC (the International Federation of Consulting Engineers). She won the ACEC-BC's Young Professional Award in 2014.

In her acceptance speech, Selena thanked McElhanney for the support and recognition she and other YPs receive at McElhanney, and the Master of Ceremonies, Andy Mill, also made reference to McElhanney's outstanding reputation in this respect.
