A fully immersive experience

Bring your project to life with virtual reality. Put on a head-set, and walk through your next road design. This captivating exercise allows you to tour your new design before it’s been built. Our team brings complex and conceptual designs into a digital world where you and your audience can interact with them. Users can compare different options, change materials and textures, teleport, get BIM information, and more. Virtual Reality turns a passive audience into active participants making the experience more memorable.

Explore the below examples to see how we’ve used virtual reality to animate projects.

Malahat Hwy 1 Safety Improvements

Take a tour of Hwy 1 through Goldstream Provincial Park

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.

Stadium SkyTrain Station Virtual Reality

Stadium SkyTrain Station

McElhanney gathered laser scanned data, converted it into a 3D model, then brought it into Virtual Reality software. This is a relatively simple virtual reality experience where the user can move around the station by walking or teleporting.

Waterfrton Centre Virtual Reality Walkthrough

Waterfront Centre

This Virtual Reality experience shows the potential of this technology and its benefits for project proposals, public forums, marketing, stakeholder engagement, and more. Laser scanned data, CAD models, and 3D models were used along with programming to create this fully immersive experience.

Sultanganj Bridge 3D rendering

Sultanganj Bridge

McElhanney provided bridge design and engineering services for the Sultanganj bridge project. Our team created 3D photorealistic renderings to illustrate the article. This rendering included a detailed 3D model with textures, scenery, and vehicle traffic.

Banff Hot Springs Fly Through Demo

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.
