Why do more than 90 consulting engineering firms, employing 9,900 people, throughout British Columbia maintain a membership with the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies of British Columbia?

McElhanney has been an active participant in ACEC British Columbia and its various committees since the founding of the association. Through ACEC-BC, McElhanney has been able to establish partnerships and friendships with other firms and client groups in a relaxed, non-competitive environment. Our senior staff and our young professionals have learned to appreciate that all engineering firms have a common cause, and we have more to gain than to lose by working together to achieve our collective goals.

Chris Newcomb, President, McElhanney Consulting Services Ltd.


ACEC British Columbia provides our firm with the guidance and expertise to take our business to the next level. ACEC-BC keeps us informed of policy and regulatory changes throughout the consulting industy, advocates for the membership at the levels we couldn't reach individually, and devises strategies to address our collective industry challenges. Membership has connected us with a wide range of municipal clients and consulting contacts, and provided us valuable visibility and recognition throughout the industry.
