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.
McElhanney created the Banff Upper Hot Springs 3D model using laser scanned data. This Virtual experience brings in weather and vegetation. Users can move around the historical site allowing them to view it in detail. This 3D model will provide our team with important details to support the project.
Did you know that McElhanney’s Prince George branch in BC specializes in the fields of geotechnical, hydrotechnical, environmental, and municipal engineering? They recently completed a project for the City of Prince George which showcased their range of civil engineering expertise. The project focused on an unnamed creek which collects residential storm water and discharges to…
