PH McNally Associates Ltd.


About PH McNally Associates Ltd.

PH McNally Associates Ltd. is a small, family-owned engineering office which has provided locally based consulting and drafting services in the Medicine Hat area since 1977.

We are a generalist firm. The bulk of our work is structural design, but we undertake smaller HVAC, plumbing, electrical, site drainage, and site utility design projects. Within the bounds of the relevant Codes & Standards, we also provide integrated building design for industrial and smaller commercial, and multi-family buildings.

In addition to design work, we provide structural inspections, property condition assessments, and reserve fund studies; and provide various construction administration services.

Our Approach

In every endeavour, we bring our best efforts to be approachable; provide no-nonsense design; give back to our community, and facilitate the success of our clients by providing a high value of service.

Our Advantage

Our local focus and rich history mean that we have deep roots in the community; a sense of what has gone before; and a sophisticated understanding of what works and what doesn't in the Medicine Hat milieu.
