Project Development

Clark’s approach to project development is founded on the principles of active engagement and early planning. We start with understanding our clients' objectives and crafting a singular plan for development through asset delivery.

Design and Constructability Reviews

Before a shovel hits the ground, Clark works collaboratively to ensure designs are buildable, efficient, and aligned with the project budget – ensuring the project can advance through permitting and financial close. 

Cost Planning and Estimating

Extensive market insights, historical data from thousands of projects, and supply chain expertise enable us to provide cost certainty.

Clark works with clients and designers to establish the budget and provide continuous estimating throughout design. Our collaborative approach ensures the best value as the client’s vision is realized.

Design Management

Whether the designer is working for the client or we are engaged as a design-builder, we support the accurate and timely development of documents to meet our clients’ needs and limit design changes that disrupt delivery.


Our long-standing trade contractor relationships provide a deep understanding of the market. 

Our strategy is based on four principles:

  • Clear and complete scope packages
  • Market competition
  • Understanding supply chains changes
  • Ensuring we achieve our small business goals

Development Schedules

Pull planning in the development phase makes sure our clients get what they need, when they need it.

We work together to create a visual representation of an entire project – including design decisions, dependent activities, and areas of risk. Everyone involved in the project understands their roles and responsibilities and can coordinate efforts efficiently.
