The City of Overland Park, Kansas retained McClure for the redesign and improvements of the existing Santa Fe Commons and new Thompson Park space in the City’s downtown area. McClure provided the site survey for master planning efforts and construction documentation for site parking, pavement, and site features throughout the park. McClure was responsible for the coordination of site improvements and utility infrastructure. McClure designed new sidewalks, curbs, and parking on both sides of the park to match up with the existing urban pedestrian network. This required working within tight grading tolerances to ensure ADA compliance for the surrounding pedestrian sidewalks. The civil engineers relocated the Evergy power poles and overhead lines within the project area and provided water, sewer, and gas to the new park amenities. The landscape architects vetted the ability to grade the site while preserving existing trees. McClure worked alongside RDG Planning & Design for the master planning and redesign improvements of Thompson Park.
