Clark Honored at AGC Alliant Build America Awards

March 20, 2015

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – The Los Angeles Hall of Justice project earned the Associated General Contractors of America's (AGC) Build America Award in the 'Building Renovation $11M - $199M' category at this year's national convention in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Alliant Build America awards honor AGC members who build and renovate the nation's most impressive construction projects. Judging criteria includes excellence in project management,  innovation in construction techniques or materials, outstanding safety record, superior client service, and exceptional community relations. Clark worked alongside design partner A.C. Martin of Los Angeles on the design-build contract for structural, architectural, and aesthetic upgrades to the 1920s-era Hall of Justice building. L.A.'s former county jail, the Hall of Justice was closed after it was damaged in the 1994 Northridge earthquake.

Upon project completion, Los Angeles County’s public works director, Gail Farber, commented, "I want to commend the design-build project team who worked effectively and collaboratively to restore and resolve the many challenges on this project. They demonstrated the best practices to successfully deliver this project on schedule and under budget.”

Three years of design and construction culminated in October 2014, when the Hall of Justice was re-dedicated to serve Los Angeles County.
