ES&S provided complete site planning and design services for the development of a medical park on a greenfield site at the intersection of Providence Road (MO Route 163) and Southampton Drive.  The site plan for this 24-acre site called for site layout of an 85,000-sf medical office building and 425-stall parking lot, plus provision for a future Phase II building.  Design services included boundary survey, subsurface investigation, site planning, hydrologic evaluation and storm drainage design, and erosion and sediment control.  The project incorporated low-impact development design features, such as maximizing overland flow by reducing impervious surface area and enclosed storm drainage, and including several bioretention and detention basins as stormwater BMPs.  The large, site retention basin created also serves as an aesthetic water feature for the medical campus.  The design included bioretention and a native vegetative buffer around the basin to both reduce and cleanse onsite stormwater runoff via increased infiltration and evapotranspiration.  The basin also serves as a source for irrigation water, with a well to supplement water level during dry periods.  ES&S provided these services as a subconsultant to prime architectural consultant, SOA.  Additional services facilitated by ES&S under subcontract included landscape architecture (Loomis & Associates) and a traffic engineering study (Crawford, Bunte & Brammeier).

Transportation design included the addition of a dual left turn lane from westbound Southampton Drive to southbound Providence Road, which is dual-designated MO Route 163, requiring coordination with MoDOT.  Multi-modal features include an onsite fitness trail with connections created to the City of Columbia’s Providence Pedway and a nearby transit stop.

ES&S has provided design-support (land survey, utility mapping, geotechnical investigations and reports) and construction-support services for various expansion and modification projects over many years at Memorial Stadium/Faurot Field, home of Missouri Tigers Football.  The most recent was the South End Zone Expansion.  The project included demolition of the south end zone grandstands and construction of a 200,000-sf addition that included 16 suites, a 750-person field-level club, a 1,250-seat indoor club area with food service/restrooms, and general seating for 1,324 approximately fans.  A new concourse links to the stadium’s East and West stadium areas, and new video boards enhance the Mizzou game-day experience.  Enclosed space permanently house football operations, which allows for the Missouri Athletics Training Center (MATC) to be for other athletic programs.  Additional features of the new facility include a roof-top video deck and two-bay loading dock. A new road was constructed that connects the stadium’s west side to the south.

ES&S provided design-support (land survey, utility mapping, geotechnical investigations and reports) and construction-support services for various expansion and modification projects over many years at Memorial Stadium/Faurot Field, home of Missouri Tigers Football.  After the University joined the SEC in 2010, the University planned a phased, major expansion and renovation of the stadium to upgrade facilities and enhance the game-day experience.  The East Side Expansion/Renovation project consisted of a 114,000-sf expansion and renovation to the stadium’s east side.  The construction provided accommodations for a new club level that includes club/loge seating areas, private suites, and adjacent club/entertainment spaces.  Additional general seating was also provided in a new upper deck structure, improvements were made to the north concourse amenities, with significant upgrades to fan amenities like the Tiger Team Store, and allowing for lawn seating closer to the north end of the playing field.

ES&S performed work for the project’s Construction Manager, J.E. Dunn Construction, and directly for the University.

The project consisted of site grading, drainage and utility relocation design for this new destination feature on the flagship campus of the University of Missouri in Columbia. Located on the north end of the Mel Carnahan Quadrangle, Traditions Plaza is an amphitheater, memorial, and “…a variety of features honoring MU’s history and heritage. MU traditions along with notable quotations are etched in the bricks and tiles that create the stage and pillars making the plaza one of the most cherished and hallowed locations on central campus.” *

Services were provided as a subconsultant to prime designer, DTLS Landscape Studio.

ES&S provided full civil site design services for the building of two significant elementary school projects for the Camdenton District.  Osage Beach Elementary School is a new 83,000 square foot campus in Osage Beach, Missouri.  Civil design features included site layout, grading, drainage, erosion and sediment control, detention, on-site and off-site utilities, and a sanitary sewage lift station and force main.

The existing Hurricane Deck Elementary School, in Sunrise Beach, Missouri, completed a 58,000-sf addition.  ES&S provided full civil site design services for this expansion.  Services included first assisting with conceptual site plans for the layout of the new parking areas.  Site design services included grading, drainage, erosion and sediment control, on-site utilities, new and improved parking areas, and site layout of building, parking lots and existing school playground.  Both projects also involved significant coordination among various local and state government agencies.  ES&S was a subconsultant to the prime architect, ACI Boland, for both projects.

As part of the planning and design of a new surface parking lot, ES&S provided complete design services for an underground storm water detention and water quality facility serving the central campus.  This project was a recommendation from the Campus-Wide Stormwater Master Plan, prepared by ES&S in February 2011.  The new facility was designed to account for the cumulative increase in runoff associated with full build out of the College’s facility master plan.  The project included use of ADS’s StormTech® subsurface storm water management system storage, including the use of StormTech Isolator™ Row units to provide for water quality improvement to reach the Level of Service (LS) requirements of the City of Columbia’s revised (2008) storm water management ordinance.  The WQ facility sits under the surface parking lot at the corner of Eighth & Wilkes Streets (right)

ES&S provided full site design services for the new 60,000-sf, four-story, academic and residence hall for Columbia College. The first floor of the facility houses the Robert W. Plaster School of Business, consisting of offices, six classrooms and a larger event center.  The second, third and fourth floors will contain a 150-bed student dormitory.

Design services included site layout and full civil engineering and design-support services for the new building.  Specific design features included property surveys, site layout of building and parking, grading, drainage, erosion and sediment control, and utility connections.  The subsurface investigation included extensive mapping and coordination due to the relocation of existing utilities for the building site, which is in the heart of the college’s main campus.  ES&S also provided calculations necessary permitting documentation regarding the impacts of the new construction relative to the campus’ regional storm water detention and water quality facilities, which were constructed as part of a campus-wide storm water master plan completed by the firm in 2011.  There was also a feasibility study completed to determine the most efficient connection to the City’s sanitary sewer system, followed by design of a new pump station and force main.

Construction-support services included construction surveys and layout, observation of foundation construction and reinforcing steel, and quality assurance testing for construction materials, steel connections, and fireproofing materials.

ES&S provided site layout planning and design services as part of an initiative to develop the North Quadrangle area in the heart of the College’s main campus.  The project includes significant new additions to the grounds, including the Whitcraft-Schiffman Memorial AmphitheaterAlumni Fountain, addition of Christian College* Garden, an outdoor dining pavilion, and relocation of the campus security office to this prominent gathering area.  Since the onset of the initiative, the quad has become a centrally-located gathering space for students to relax, study, and socialize.

Services included participation in site layout iterations, topographic and boundary surveys, subsurface investigations, extensive utility mapping and relocation design, grading plan, drainage, erosion and sediment control, sidewalk and parking lot upgrades, and new hardscape features including permeable pavement to improve storm runoff water quality.  ES&S worked as subconsultant to prime architectural consultant, SOA.

*  Christian College was the original name of the institution from its founding in 1851 until 1970. (top image source credit  An outstanding aerial video of the new quad can be found on Columbia College’s Facebook page:

ES&S provided site design for a two-story addition at the Sedalia Smith Cotton High School that included an expansion of the media center and additional classroom space.  The project also included construction of a new secondary gymnasium (pictured above).

Services included topographic survey, grading and drainage design, sidewalks, and modifications to the existing parking lot, a portion of which was used for the gym expansion.  Project delivery was provided by a construction manager, Septagon Construction, and design led by Porter, Berendzen Associates, though ES&S contracted directly with the school district.
