Clark constructed three, three-story, 93,000-square-foot barracks facilities on Fort Jackson in South Carolina. The barracks are an integral part of the Advanced Individual Training (AIT) Company Operations Facility, and provide a residential community for soldiers.

Each of the 300-person barrack includes living and sleeping rooms with semi-private baths, laundry rooms, storage, and multipurpose space. Cast-in-place foundations, structural steel frame, and slab on metal decks make up the structure of the barracks buildings. The building envelope consists of a brick veneer and EIFS skin, fluid applied air/vapor barrier, blast resistant aluminum windows, and a standing seam metal roof. Each building has a total of 150-room modules consisting of living/sleeping space, three closets, and a restroom.

The AIT Barracks Company Operations Facility, Phase II project was the second task order awarded to Clark under the Multiple Award Task Order Contract (MATOC) for Barracks for the Southeast Region.

Because of the project’s repetitive nature, a full scale mock-up of a living module unit, complete with an exterior envelope, was constructed in the early stages of the project. The mock-up served as a quality standard for the construction of 450 identical living units. The entire project team, including subcontractors, have benefited from having a three-dimensional reference during construction. During the construction of the mock-up, Clark compiled over 30 lessons learned that were later applied during the construction of the three buildings. This proved to be a very valuable tool and benefited both the project's quality and schedule.
