New outpatient facility located on 22 acres at Plymouth and Earhart Roads in Ann Arbor. The facility houses pediatrics, radiology, mammography, family practice, and other outpatient service areas, including a pharmacy.

Clark was initially hired as General Contractor for the enclosure of the building. As the project progressed, Clark was asked to quote a fee to assist in writing bid packs for the interior. This resulted in a unique situation where Clark was serving as General Contractor for the exterior and Construction Manager for the interior. In addition to assisting in writing the bid packages, Clark conducted pre-bid meetings, accepted bids, wrote contracts and coordinated the work.

This project was fast-tracked and required a high level of cooperation between the Owner, A/E and GC/CM. In addition to normal progress meetings, coordination meetings were held at the site. Subcontractors did layouts on site and the team went so far as to build light tables in order to do overlays to coordinate the work. This advanced planning made it possible to avoid any interference and installations were completed more efficiently.

Clark Construction Company received U of M’s Top Contractor rating during construction of this showcase project.
