Working closely with the town, McElhanney proposed new designs for these parks that will add a fresh sense of place to the community and give residents spaces where they can relax and reconnect with nature.
While COVID-19 has disrupted infrastructure projects across the country and the world, our Canmore branch’s foresight and planning, combined with a reduction in traffic as a result of social distancing and non-essential travel, has allowed one project to realize new opportunities. Survey crews were busy working on the Town of Canmore’s 2020 Transportation Improvement Projects…
Since early March, McElhanney has continued to monitor, respond, and adapt to COVID-19. We have nimbly adjusted operations to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of our team members while keeping our deliverables and commitment to you – our clients, partners, and communities – paramount. We are hopeful in learning that the curve is flattening…
The survey work for the intake tower included GPS, 3D laser scanning, UAV, and multi-beam bathymetry. The team used GPS to establish primary control from which to base the survey, and then extended that control network around the site with a conventional total station.
Ross Road is located between Mountain Highway and Allan Road in North Vancouver. McElhanney is designing replacement bridges for the aging Coleman Creek and Hastings Creek Bridges. This involves raising both the roadway approaches and bridges to achieve the maximum freeboard possible.
3D Photorealistic renders were required to showcase the design of this roundabout. CAD files were provided to model the roundabout as well as the terrain. After adding textures, lights and 3D models the renders were retouched to produce the final 3D imagery. The Contractor used these renderings to communicate the project to residents and stakeholders.
This Virtual Reality experience shows the potential of this technology and its benefits for project proposals, public forums, marketing, stakeholder engagement, and more. Laser scanned data, CAD models, and 3D models were used along with programming to create this fully immersive experience.
