McElhanney's Duncan Team

Duncan is the unofficial capital of the Cowichan Valley, a fertile crescent of rich farmland, lush vineyards, heritage river systems, and scenic back roads in the southeastern corner of Vancouver Island. Dubbed the “City of Totems,” Duncan has more than 80 First Nations carvings located throughout town, and is home to the Quw’utsun’ Cultural Centre. Duncan is also known for great shopping and dining, the Saturday Farmer’s Market, Aboriginal experiences, BC Forestry Discovery Centre, and its historic old-town quarter.

Our local team specializes in civil engineering and land surveying. We provide services to all levels of government, land owners and developers, First Nations, utility companies, and industrial clients. Our surveying services include all aspects of legal surveys including subdivisions and strata developments, topographic surveys, building and construction services, and boundary retracements. We are proud to provide our services in Duncan and the surrounding area.
