McElhanney was retained in 2017 by local construction contractor Smith Bros & Wilson (SBW) to provide surveying services to aid renovations at the library, which included the addition of escalators, elevators, and an auditorium.

Both firms knew the complex nature of the existing utilities in the parkade structure would require an innovative approach to data collection and presentation.
