Sacramento, CA – December 17, 2013 – West-Sacramento-based Clark Pacific, one of the nation’s leading suppliers of architectural and structural precast concrete solutions, received the highly coveted Construction Safety and Excellence Award at a ceremony hosted recently by the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC).
The AGC grants Construction Safety and Excellence Awards each year to recognize construction companies committed to safety, risk control, and occupational health management. The awards take into consideration a broad range of criteria, including evidence of commitment to safe practices in management, active employee participation, work site hazard identification, safety program innovation, and more.
Clark Pacific was awarded third place in the specialty division designated for firms with over one million worker hours. Entrants from all over California were evaluated by the AGC in this category. Other winning firms in the division included Cupertino Electric, Inc. and Rosendin Electric, Inc.
“Creating a safe work environment at our manufacturing plants and in our field operations has always been a priority at Clark Pacific, and that makes this recognition from AGC very important to us,” said Don Clark, president of business development for Clark Pacific. “Nothing is more critical than the safety of our employees, and the reliability of our products on every structure we work on.”
Clark Pacific received a contract in 2012 to provide all of the precast concrete for the new Levi’s Stadium, currently under construction in Santa Clara. The new $1.2 billion, 68,500-seat stadium will necessitate 40 million pounds of precast concrete. Clark Pacific also recently completed the precast concrete scope of work for the Hoover Campus Parking Structure at Stanford University Medical Center, an eight-level garage that will serve the Hoover Pavilion building. The company recently celebrated its 50th anniversary.
