McElhanney Ltd

Vancouver, BC, Canada


What kind of users will be on your highways, in your communities, and visiting your parks 50 years from now? We combine data and technology to create that future with you. From Indigenous hunting grounds to two-million-dollar roadways, McElhanney scales the application of industry-leading GIS data technology for your project. Your challenge is our passion, and with over 110 years in business we have built a reputation as a trusted consulting firm in part because we innovate alongside longstanding local clients and communities across Western Canada and beyond. Each project is an opportunity to curate industry-leading solutions for new situations, just like we did for the BC Ministry of Transportation in the fall of 2021 during a major flood event. When highways across British Columbia were immobilized after extreme rains during the fall of 2021, our team delivered a collaborative website for public engagement, and had drones and helicopters in the air to facilitate everything from evacuations and food deliveries to engineering and transportation solutions. From drone surveys and 3D infrastructure planning to conceptual indoor GIS and real-time visualization analytics and 3D GIS, McElhanney combines over 110 years of insight with a spirit of exploration to build better communities together, one project at a time.
