City of Wentzville, Missouri

The Cochran Team provided design and construction administration services for the City of Wentzville’s 59-acre Heartland Park’s development, which includes soccer and football fields, three pavilions and a boardwalk. The main park project was completed in 2017, with an additional 2-year period for maintenance of native plant growth. Additional projects, including a 10-foot-wide walking trail and inclusive playground, were completed in 2019.

Cochran provided construction management services, as well as oversight and inspection of all construction services; general contractor coordination, budget controls, scheduling, administration, construction inspection, value engineering, quality assurance, creation & maintenance of project records, material testing coordination, shop drawing submittal review and approvals, and RFI’s submittal review and approval.

Angel Moms Memorial – Cochran designed a memorial walk-way at Heartland Park for the Angel Moms organization. They wanted a peaceful experience within the park to enjoy views of the lake and have a quiet moment. The project included design lookouts, memorial pavers, landscaping, waterfall with a feature sculpture, and smaller creeks with additional memorial sculptures throughout. Upon design completion, Cochran assisted in the cost estimate and preparation of Heartland Park’s construction documents completed in 2017.
Walking Trail Connector – In 2018, Cochran completed design of a 10’-wide concrete section of trail (including 2 box culverts) to connect the existing trail to City sidewalks along the roadway and complete a loop around the outer edge of the lake. Plans and specifications were prepared and provided for construction bidding.
Jake’s Field of Dreams – In 2018, Cochran again assisted with the next phase of development of Heartland Park, Jake’s Field of Dreams, a universally inclusive playground that brings kids and adults of all abilities together to play. Cochran proudly provided grading plans, retaining wall design, construction staking, geotechnical and material testing services.
