Clark Foundations perfromed the excavation, sheeting, and shoring work for Clarendon Center. The site posed distinct challenges for the team. The Metro’s orange train line runs under the north side of the project site, and at places, the Metro tunnel is just three feet beneath the below-grade structure.
