Clark builds educational facilities that inspire creativity and ingenuity, promote the learning process, and strengthen the academic mission of our clients. Among the nation’s top education contractors, we have delivered more than 100 academic structures for public and private institutions across the country. Our vast experience in this market, innovative approach to building, and expertise in alternative project delivery — including PPP and design-build — enables us to bring much-needed facilities to campuses and communities more efficiently and cost effectively than ever before.

From the earliest stages of planning and design through building occupancy, our teams work through every project detail to guarantee that the built facility meets our clients' and the end-users’ needs. This includes establishing budget and schedule parameters, outlining comprehensive communications plans to keep students and faculty informed of building activities, and designing and implementing stringent safety programs to ensure the well being of the public and our workforce during construction.

Whether constructing a state-of-the-art high school or designing and building a signature student housing community, we ensure that our construction approach is respectful to the sensitivity of working on active campuses and does not interfere with the school’s educational mission.

Our breadth of services allows us to be more than just a builder. As a top green contractor, we assist clients in developing bleeding-edge sustainable facilities that are not only energy efficient and cost effective, but also serve as learning environments for students.

Our extensive work on active campuses and decades of experience collaborating with project stakeholders, including faculty, researchers, students, and school administrators, gives us a broad understanding of the unique needs and challenges of our academic partners. This perspective enables us to serve as a valuable partner throughout the construction process, and beyond.

Each time we set foot on a new campus, we seek to build a relationship that endures. Our longstanding partnerships with many of the country’s top universities and local school districts are a testament to our commitment to being a construction partner, and to delivering the highest caliber of work at an exceptional cost.

From classrooms to residences halls and sports venues to research centers, Clark has successfully delivered more than $9 billion of intelligent, award-winning academic facilities.
