Resorts, Hotel, Casinos, & Sports

Clark Construction has constructed more than 3 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, in northern Michigan. This includes a total of 10 condominium developments with 380 condominiums and four major hotel/condominiums with nearly 1,200 rooms.

In entertainment venues, Clark managed construction of two of Michigan’s newest Indian gaming casinos – Firekeepers Casino near Battle Creek and the Odawa Casino Resort in Petoskey. 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.
