Clark’s experience and commitment to sustainable building practices run deep within company culture. We have LEED certified managers and field personnel that were among the first in our region to implement innovative sustainable building systems.
Each project brings unique opportunities for energy efficient and/or sustainable methods. For example, in several of Clark’s projects we have suggested the design team consider using insulated concrete forms (ICFs) in lieu of standard wood framing systems. These rigid foam blocks provide a superior wall structure with an R-value of 22. ICFs are also resistant to rot and infestation and double the useful life of a structure.
We are also proud to have been selected as the general contractor for the Loom House on Bainbridge Island; a project that aims to be the first residential remodel ever certified as a Living Building by the International Living Future Institute. This designation is the most rigorous performance standard for sustainability in the building industry, which requires adherence to a strict materials Red List, proof of recycling materials, and net zero resource usage.
