John S. Clark Company tackles two of Triad’s biggest projects

September 28th, 2007 · No Comments

Mount Airy-based John S. Clark Company is the general contractor for two of the 25 largest construction projects under way or completed during the past year in the 12-county Triad region, according to The Business Journal of the Greater Triad.

The projects are the $15.51-million Wal-Mart store at 3420 Peters Creek Parkway in Winston-Salem (No. 4 on the list published Sept. 28) and the $3.59-million Harris-Teeter at The Shoppes at Battleground in Guilford County (No. 23). The latter is being developed by Granite Development Co., John S. Clark Company’s associated development company.

Craig Hunter of Mount Airy, a principal in Granite Development, told the Business Journal that one of the biggest misconceptions about developers is “that (they) do not care about the communities they build in and are just out to destroy natural resources and make money.

“I know of several developers, especially here in the Triad, that love the communities they build in and constantly work to contribute and be positive influences in those communities with allocation of time, money and other resources.”

The Charlotte Business Journal this year ranked John S. Clark Company among the top five general contractors in the North Carolina Metro Area. The Charlotte Business Journal judges each firm based on contracting revenue earned in 2006. It reported John S. Clark Company’s contracting revenue in 2006 as $251,154,328.

John S. Clark Company LLC has core competencies in industrial, retail, health sciences, office and commercial construction. The company has four full-service offices in North Carolina and performs work in 24 states and Canada.
