PROJECT NAME: Silver Creek Preserve
OWNER: St. Clair County
LOCATION: St. Clair County, Illinois
CONSTRUCTION COST: $421,000
YEAR COMPLETED: 2005
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: St. Clair County employed our firm to prepare preliminary and final plans, specifications, and estimates for the construction of a Nature Preserve.  The project was funded primarily by an OSLAD grant and consists of a nature park with various species of flora and fauna and wetland basins.  The project included approximately 4,500 feet of asphalt paved walking trail, pavilion, pit privy, concrete sidewalk, picnic tables, benches, pedestrian bridges, kiosks, scenic overlook structure, refuse receptacles, site signage, trees, shrubs, native grasses, wildflowers, wetland seeding and asphalt paved access road and parking lot.  During construction of the project, our firm applied for and received additional funding to supplement the OSLAD grant.  The additional funding was used to improve the walking trail from an aggregate surface to an asphalt paved surface.  Our firm was also retained to perform full construction services including staking, construction observation, materials testing and construction contract administration.
