Executive staff from leading construction firms including Balfour Beatty, DPR, Clark Construction, Hathaway Dinwiddie, Level 10, McCarthy, Rudolf & Sletten, Sundt, Swinerton, Turner, Webcor Builders, and developer firms including Jay Paul, Lowe Enterprises, Ramco, and Sares Regis were in attendance. Presidents Robert and Don Clark thanked guests for their continued support and for helping make the family-run company a national recognized leader in architectural and structural precast concrete solutions.
“It says a lot for any company to be in the construction business for 50 years,” said Richard Heim, president of the western division for Clark Construction. “It shows vision, it shows perseverance, it shows a high degree of professionalism and Clark Pacific has all of those attributes.”
Clark Pacific has experienced rapid growth over the last few years supplying precast concrete solutions for large-scale projects like the San Francisco 49’ers stadium in Santa Clara, key hospital projects such as the Stanford University Medical Center along with other parking structure, student housing and corporate campus projects. This activity has resulted in an expansion in staff and the acquisition of an additional plant facility in Irwindale to offer structural precast concrete solutions in the Southern California market as well.
“We are thrilled to be able to share this occasion with our industry colleagues and business partners who have worked with us on many monumental projects throughout California,” said Bob Clark, president of operations at Clark Pacific. “As a company we strive to produce the best quality products on the market, and to provide our clients with creative solutions. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to partner with such talented and passionate companies over the years.”
“Over the last 50 years we have specialized in creating and revolutionizing how structural precast concrete and architectural concrete can be integrated into building design to improve the overall quality and lifespan of the structure,” said Don Clark, president of business development for Clark Pacific. “In recent years we’ve developed new techniques that enable buildings to meet new sustainability and energy efficiency requirements while meeting aesthetic goals and furthering the seismic resilience of the building. We are excited to move forward and grow, to continue improving and innovating in our field, and to continue shaping the built environment in California.”
