Whistlers Campground Rehabilitation and Upgrade

2015-2022 | Jasper National Park, Jasper, AB

Whistlers Campground in Jasper National Park includes 781 campsites and is considered the second largest campground in North America. McElhanney worked with Parks Canada to rehabilitate and upgrade the Whistlers Campground and set a design standard for campgrounds along the Icefield Parkway and Corridor along the way. 

Launched in July 2015, the Whistlers Campground rehabilitation project kicked off with site assessment work for all disciplines. Teams visually inspected, geo-referenced, photographed, and rated each asset using the Overall Asset Condition Rating Guide in the Recapitalization Management Process (RMP) Operations Manual. A report was prepared and presented to Parks Canada in August 2015 summarizing findings before teams turned to the next project phase. 

In the following years, the Whistlers Campground rehabilitation project tackled a full reconstruction of roadways, campsites, utilities, and 19 new buildings including washrooms and a new registration centre. McElhanney supported the project from concept and detailed design, to tendering, contract administration, and construction inspections.

McElhanney provided:

  • Resident and non-resident construction inspection for both civil works and building construction throughout the entire project 
  • Construction and contract administration services 
  • Design changes during construction 
  • Record drawings and project close out reporting
