2007 – 2009


The City of Woodland completed construction of their new sports park, dog park, and community and senior center in 2009.


Sports Park Phase 1 Project –

Included four synthetic multi-use soccer/softball fields, a separate synthetic soccer field, lighting for the existing parking, site furnishings, landscaping, and a portable restroom facility.


Community & Senior Center, Phase 2 –

Involved the addition of a 7,000 square foot building for dance, aerobics and fitness, and additional parking. The building was constructed of steel columns with a thin brick veneer. The electrical and mechanical systems tied into the existing building, with a new fire riser being installed for the addition.


Woodland Dog Park –

Consisted of a new two-acre dog park providing areas for both large and small dogs, ADA compliant picnic areas, multi-use (canine and human) drinking fountains, and landscaping.


As the City’s representative, Blackburn provided construction management services to oversee construction progress and quality. Our services included:

  • constructability review of bid documents,
  • construction schedule review and analysis,
  • submittal, RFI, and change order management,
  • construction inspection,
  • materials testing,
  • special inspection, and
  • contract administration.

During construction, the contractor realized their over-excavation for the building additions could weaken the existing building foundation. To mitigate potential re-design costs and construction delays, Blackburn provided recommendations for chemical treatment of the soil that allowed the contractor to reduce their over-excavation depth.
