Three companies have been offered a formal contract with the Blue Springs Growth Initiative group, the main organizer of the proposed Missouri Innovation Park at Blue Springs.
Treanor Architects, an architecture firm with five regional offices in the Midwest; Confluence, a consulting firm comprised of landscape architects and planners, and Olsson Associates, an engineering and design firm that has been creating public and private projects throughout the United States for more than 50 years, have been offered contracts, according to a release issued by the Blue Springs Growth Initiative group.
“The BSGI team has been impressed with the Treanor, Confluence, and Olsson team,” Bill Wrisinger, spokesman for the Blue Springs Growth Initiative, said in a release.
The three companies had worked with the former master developer Trammell Crow before it left the project.
 “We look forward to having them remain on our team as we work through the pre-development and master planning phases of the projects.”
Wrisinger continued:
“From what I have seen, Treanor, Confluence, and Olsson have embraced our vision of a vibrant and inviting research park in a park-like setting. We have a pioneering vision for the MIP, and we have assembled the talent to make that vision a reality.”
BSGI said the design team brings extensive design expertise in higher education institutions and centers for research. The Missouri Innovation Park is a controlled and master planned development anchored by the Mizzou Center for Innovation. The Master Plan is committed to sustainable features that highlight the natural assets of the area.  
The plan calls for groupings of buildings that take advantage of sweeping golf course views and are connected by outdoor collaboration spaces. The plan also enables easy transitions between multi-disciplinary users, all supporting innovative concepts, for education, research, and manufacturing.
