Resorts, Hotel, Casinos, & Sports

Clark Construction has constructed more than 4 million square feet of hotel/condo space. Over the years, the Clark Team has provided construction services for many hotel clients, the first in the late 1950s for the prestigious Jack Tar Hotel in downtown Lansing. Since then we have managed hotel projects for companies like Marriott, Hilton Hotels, and Quality Suites.

During the late 1990’s we began managing construction of upscale, luxury hotel/condominiums, as well as residential condominium developments. This included a total of 10 condominium developments with 380 condominiums and four major hotel/condominiums and boutique hotels with nearly 2,500 rooms in total. Clark has built over 5,000 keys in total.

In entertainment venues, Clark managed construction at four of Michigan’s  Native gaming casinos – Firekeepers Casino Resort, Gun Lake Casino Resort, Little River Casino, and Odawa Casino Resort. Construction of casinos includes high-end finishes, gaming areas, meeting and banquet facilities, night clubs, kitchens and a variety of dining venues, administrative offices, back-of-house support space, security systems, and extensive sitework, including wastewater treatment facilities.

The final facet of this section is comprised of sports projects. Clark Construction Company offers experience on sports/recreation projects for higher education, public and private K-12 schools, government and commercial entities.
