Careful planning is the foundation upon which all successful projects are built. Clark’s unsurpassed preconstruction experience enables us to see the “big picture” and ensure that our plans are designed to attain our clients’ objectives. Working with our partners from a project’s earliest stages promises a seamless transition from the design phase to the project site, results in fewer construction-phase changes and schedule impacts, and yields cost savings; it also provides a certainty that the finished product we deliver matches our client’s vision.

To guarantee results, we work alongside our project teams, clients, designers, and engineers during a project’s earliest stages to maximize constructability, evaluate building materials and systems, value engineer early designs, integrate sustainable elements, and provide an accurate budget and schedule. We also seek input from our in-house experts in such disciplines as foundations, structural components, building envelope, mechanical and electrical systems, and purchasing.

Clark's preconstruction professionals have provided in-house preconstruction services on over 2,000 projects across the country.
