This 242 acre Industrial Park in Union, Missouri is an ongoing project driven by the availability of the Department of Economic Development and Community Development Block Grant funding and the needs for industrial development within the local community. Since 1999 Cochran has provided master planning, speculative buildings, land use and development programming, 2.4 miles of roadway, stormwater collections and detention, grading, 2.5 miles of water main, stormwater and 2 miles sanitary sewer extensions. Cochran services included survey (boundary, platting & topography), civil and architectural design and geotechnical/ environmental services within the development.
Much of the infrastructure for this development has been financed with Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) dollars as new jobs were created for the surrounding community. The Industrial Park infrastructure costs to date are in excess of $4,000,000.00. This number does not include the individual industrial park tenant costs. In 2010/2011, Cochran completed the latest phase of the development, which included the extension of concrete streets, water, and sanitary sewer infrastructure. Additional roadways were designed in 2015 to service new lot development. Cochran has assisted the Union Development Corporation to entitle the UCC as a “Missouri Certified Site” which greatly enhances the probability of continued development. Cochran currently has several new projects in design.
