United States General Services Administration (GSA) awarded Clark a $77 million contract for the Phase 1C Modernization of the Harry S. Truman Building.  The Harry S. Truman Building is home to the U.S. Department of State.

Clark will demolish the interior of the building and complete hazardous material abatement. The building’s historic façade will be reinforced with structural steel and existing windows will be replaced with blast-resistant glass. Working with the GSA, as well as architect and engineer, Westlake Reed Leskosky, the team also will provide progressive collapse mitigation, improve the core architectural finishes, and upgrade all mechanical, electrical, plumbing, communication, fire protection, circulation, and security systems.

Clark’s scope of work also includes a 300,000 square-foot interior tenant fit-out of the space. Office areas will be constructed based on the State Department’s criteria and will include collaborative space with demountable partitions. The team also will construct ADA compliant corridors and restrooms.

Substantial completion is scheduled for Summer of 2017.
