John S. Clark Company forms new division

January 14th, 2008 · No Comments

John S. Clark Company, LLC, of Mount Airy has formed a new Building Improvement Division, succeeding and expanding its former Special Projects group.

Vice President Bill Sinclair will head the new division located at 11 Brookstown Ave. in downtown Winston-Salem. Sinclair joined the company in 2005. He has 15 years’ experience in commercial construction in the local market area, including six years running his own company.

The Building Improvement Division will focus on tenant upfits, renovations and additions in the commercial, industrial, retail, medical and institutional markets across the Triad. Its staff includes project managers, superintendents and administrative support personnel.

Jim Walker, president of John S. Clark Company, said, “We have seen our strategy to seek more renovation and upfit work exceed our expectations and, with the other growth in our company, we found ourselves with a challenge: providing adequate space for future growth and enhancing the identity of the group. Bill Sinclair now has a fully functioning staff that will be a full division in John S. Clark Company LLC and, since the work done is always an improvement on a new or existing facility, we want to designate it as the Building Improvement Division. This identity and our location in downtown Winston-Salem will continue the momentum currently under way.”

This type of work at John S. Clark Company has grown from nothing to more than $7 million in less than two years, including dozens of projects such as Dioli’s Italian Market, Marley Drug and additions to Dell Manufacturing. The division is especially proud of the repeat client work such as Breugger’s Bagels, BB&T and Truliant.

Current Building Improvement Division projects include Café Prada at 4th and Broad streets in downtown Winston Salem, relocating Loomcraft Textiles to Westpoint Stevens in Burlington and a 10,500-square-foot addition to Burton Signs in Mount Airy.

John S. Clark Company is the largest Triad-based general contractor. The company has fully integrated design/build capabilities. The firm operates full-service offices in Surry County, Winston-Salem, Greensboro and Wilmington. In addition to the Building Improvement Division, the company has core competencies in industrial, retail, multi-family, health sciences and commercial construction.
