McElhanney’s in house web mapping platform, Vertisee, was used to host all of the relevant project information including current and historical assets, orthophoto, LiDAR and field crew assessments.
McElhanney designed and implemented a mobile field program and desktop conversion of various data sources to update Metro Vancouver Regional District’s spatial database of all assets owned and maintained by the Parks department.
McElhanney partnered with the City of Grande Prairie to complete stormwater management design in the Mountview neighbourhood.
Our Penticton team provided engineering design, planning, construction & contract management, and inspection services for Meadows Subdivision.
Since 2010, McElhanney has provided Legal Surveying to Citimark for their Crystal Heights and Apex Townhouse development projects.
This 35-unit luxury townhouse development involved design of onsite and offsite roads, underground utilities, grading, storm drainage, cost estimating, and construction inspections and administration.
With the Malahat Corridor Improvement Project, the BC Ministry of Transportation & Infrastructure has been improving the safety of Hwy 1 by installing a median barrier and other upgrades. The stretch of highway which runs through Goldstream Provincial Park is challenging to design solutions for, as it is constrained by the river immediately running next to it, and by park lands on both sides.
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.
McElhanney, along with subconsultants Level Playing Field and Ron Wickman Architect, developed the Accessibility Construction Guidelines for Alberta Environment and Parks. The manual prescribes how to reduce barriers for challenged populations, giving them equal access to the splendor of Alberta’s parks.
Completed in 2016, the new cable stayed four-lane Nipigon River Bridge replaced a two-lane steel deck truss bridge which had been built in 1974. The bridge is part of the Trans-Canada Highway and carries traffic over the Nipigon River in northwestern Ontario.
