Clark Construction to expand in NoVa
Company helping build HQ2 to open McLean office
Bethesda, Maryland-based Clark Construction Group LLC, the general contractor for several phases of Amazon.com Inc.’s HQ2, announced plans Tuesday to expand the company’s footprint in the mid-Atlantic region, including building a 128,000-square-foot office in McLean.
The office will be at 7900 Westpark Drive in Fairfax County, and will “provide a modern and collaborative hub for Clark’s infrastructure, building and asset solutions teams along with many of Clark’s corporate departments that serve the company’s projects nationwide,” according to a news release. Clark has six other offices in the mid-Atlantic region and will double the size of its Baltimore office.
“Clark’s success for the past century has been deeply rooted in our commitment to creating an exceptional experience for our clients and our communities,” Clark CEO Robby Moser said in a statement. “Continuing to serve the region and harnessing the wealth of opportunities and talent that spans from Baltimore to Richmond requires a network of strategic locations. We are delighted to expand our office footprint throughout the region to meet the needs of our business, better serve our communities, and provide greater opportunities for our team.”
The company is renovating the space and will move there in the fall. It’s Clark’s third location in Virginia. The other two are affiliate Shirley Contracting Co.’s office in Lorton, and Clark Water’s office in Sterling. Clark also is in the process of establishing a Richmond office, it said in the release.
“Clark is an invaluable partner to the commonwealth, and we congratulate them on a new regional expansion into McLean,” Gov. Glenn Youngkin said. “Their continued growth and success is a gain for the commonwealth, and I thank them for their continued endeavors in Virginia. Virginia can and will be a hub for growing businesses like Clark, new companies and job opportunities.”
Clark is the general contractor for the first phase of Amazon.com Inc.’s HQ2 in Arlington, as well as phases six, seven and eight for Metropolitan Park. The company also renovated, repositioned and made improvements to the 14-story building at 1770 Crystal Drive in Arlington. In addition, Clark is involved with the Interstate 95/Route 630 reconstruction and widening project in Stafford County, and it built the 1.1 million-square-foot mixed-use development The Boro in Tysons, the Inova Schar Cancer Institute in Merrifield and other projects throughout Virginia.
“We have created an environment here in Fairfax County where companies like Clark see the value in investing and expanding,” said Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chairman Jeffrey C. McKay. “Clark Construction has played an important role in infrastructure development for Fairfax County and the region. Their projects have helped move our commuters along faster and strengthen our local businesses. We welcome them to Tysons and look forward to continuing this cooperative effort.”
