Project description: Base Construction & Management crews broke ground in late February after Anderson Engineering officials received a property rezoning and annexation from Springfield City Council. The acquisition of 9 acres from property owner Donald Williams was contingent upon the zoning change to highway commercial from suburban residential, according to past Springfield Business Journal reporting. Anderson Investment Group LLC now owns the land, according to Greene County assessor records. Plans call for a 10,000-square-foot office and a separate 5,000-square-foot materials testing lab with a loading dock. “Separating the two spaces makes sense,” company CEO and President Neil Brady said. “They’re dealing with all the construction materials. It’s noise, the materials – it’s everything.” Upon completion, he said Anderson Engineering will relocate its 40 corporate employees, currently working at 2045 W. Woodland St.
