The Fort Benning Trainee Barracks project included a stick-built barracks for 489 soldiers, a company operations facility located at Martin Army Community Hospital, and a battalion headquarters for the 1st Battalion (Airborne), 507th Infantry Regiment. Clark led the construction effort, which were located on three separate sites.

Clark also constructed several support facilities and connected all utilities and information systems. In total, over 105 acres were developed in support of the new training and operations facilities, including paving, walkways, curbs and gutters, and storm drainage. The entire Fort Benning Trainee Barracks site meets anti-terrorism and force protection standards, including perimeter security and access control.

Innovative design-build techniques were pioneered in delivering these affordable, durable, and timely facilities. The use of precast wall panels, pre-engineered metal buildings, and off-site fabrication of key mechanical systems were central to the project's success.
