Clark Projects Honored at AGC Alliant Build America Awards

LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Company projects recently earned three prestigious awards at the Associated General Contractors of America's (AGC) National Convention in Las Vegas. The Naval Hospital at Camp Pendleton received two Alliant Build America Awards in the New Building project and Marvin M. Black Excellence in Partnering categories; the U.S. Coast Guard Headquarters received the Alliant Build America Award for Best Design-Build project.

A panel of judges representing a cross-section of the construction industry evaluated all nominated projects for complexity, innovation, and client satisfaction, among other criteria. The Naval Hospital at Camp Pendleton project team was honored for turning over the military hospital six months ahead of schedule and more than $100 million under budget. The hospital was delivered by a joint venture of Clark and McCarthy Building Companies, working in a formal partnering arrangement with the client and other key project partners. The U.S. Coast Guard Headquarters' success was bolstered by the complex self-perform work of Metro Earthworks, Clark Foundations, and Clark Concrete. The design-build team also was recognized for their attention to detail and focus on quality on the large-scale project.

The Alliant Build America Awards honor the nation’s most significant construction projects. The AGC Build America Marvin M. Black Partnering Award (now represented by a category within the Alliant Build America Awards) is presented annually to construction project(s) that epitomize the principles of partnering. Inspired by AGC’s Past President Marvin M. Black, the inclusion of partnering into the Build America Awards represents a timely and unified celebration of the construction industry’s finest.
