The University of Maryland awarded Clark a $90 million contract for the Bioengineering Building. The new, 184,000 square-foot facility is located on the university’s College Park campus.

The new structure provides much needed research and academic space for the Fischell Department of Bioengineering. Clark constructed the A. James Clark Hall on a parking lot just north of the Kim Building. It features atrium space, a two-story flexible open laboratory space, flexible classrooms, optical laser laboratories, imaging laboratories, electromagnetic and radio frequency interference shielded spaces for sensitive equipment, and a vivarium. The building exterior is comprised of curtain wall with aluminum baguette sunshades, masonry, cast stone accents, and metal wall panels.

The A. James Clark Hall is LEED Silver certified.
