Bear Creek Bridge Replacement

McElhanney is providing a wide array of services for this project including structural, civil, and hydrological engineering, environmental, visualization, and arborist services. McElhanney developed the images to help illustrate the project concept.

Banff Upper Hot Springs

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.

Town of High River New Land Use Bylaw

High River, AB – The Town of High River, Alberta, had an outdated set of bylaws which dated back to 1980. McElhanney was retained to re-write the Town’s Land Use Bylaw based entirely on walkability; the first of its find in Alberta.

Pine Pass and South Peace Floods

Following severe rain in June 2011, Hwy 97 experienced floods between Pine Pass and 20km south of Chetwynd (a length of 60km), with 73 damaged sites. This flooding resulted in the loss of culverts and bridge end fills, and washouts along various portions of the highway, forcing closure of this vital route.

Water Management for the Salmon River Dam Decommissioning

During the summer of 2017, BC Hydro’s 60-year old creosote timber dam was completely removed from the Salmon River on Vancouver Island, and the site was re-naturalized. McElhanney designed bypass channels, cofferdams, and river diversion works to use as small a footprint as possible in this narrow and hectic worksite.

Engineering Survey of the Vancouver Public Library, Central Branch

McElhanney provided surveying services to aid renovations at the library. The objective of the survey was to identify a precise location for a temporary concrete platform supporting a multi-storey crane, and to identify positions to underpin and support the load of the crane and platform.
