Testimonials & Awards

We at Cochran are proud of the long-lasting client relationships we’ve developed, the successful projects we’ve completed and the results we’ve accomplished over the years. However, instead of blowing our own horn, we prefer you to read what our clients have to say about us and how our colleagues have recognized our achievements. We offer the following testimonials and awards for your consideration:


“The City of Festus began its working relationship with Cochran Engineering approximately 2 years ago. Through the RFQ process, we chose Cochran Engineering and David Christensen to apply for an STP grant for a major street project. We were successful in receiving the grant and we owe it to the experience of David Christensen.

Since that time, we chose Cochran to work with MoDOT Local Roads personnel on a major street resurfacing project through one of our parks. Cochran has a very professional working relationship with MoDOT Local Roads and paving begins later this month. David was able to bring all the pieces together and provide the engineering expertise that gives MoDOT the added security that the job will be done right. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss our experience with Cochran Engineering.”

“It appears to me that Cochran did a superior, first-class job with this tough assignment. I had other bids, lower bids. But I felt this was a case where “you get what you pay for”, and I feel vindicated at this point. Thoroughness and accuracy and process are crucial in surveying. It’s hard to imagine how someone could have been more disciplined than what I saw from Cochran.

I will strongly, strongly recommend Cochran to anyone in Franklin County in the future. And I will share this positive experience with the Berger city council later this month, as they are deeply invested in a relationship with Cochran, and will be pleased to hear how well you treated a Berger citizen.”

“Cochran Engineering has been the city engineer for the City of De Soto for approximately two years. Cochran has designed system-wide water improvements including water storage. Cochran was also involved in two sanitary sewer grant projects to reduce inflow and infiltration. De Soto has found all of Cochran’s staff to be easy to work with and professional in their duties.”

“Cochran consistently has performed well on City of Sunset Hills projects which have included roadway design and contract administration.  They provide accurate cost estimates and track project budgets closely to ensure budget compliance.  Cochran is very familiar with Federal funding guidelines, deadlines, and procedures which ensures project success.  In addition, I have been very pleased with the design fees that have been negotiated with Cochran; they are fair and reasonable.”
