“The Convention Center by it’s nature is a complex and difficult project made all the more difficult by the complexity of the site. Clark/Denark has performed an outstanding job starting during Preconstruction when the project was over budget and continuing through build out where we now enjoy an excellent building completed on time and within the budget established at the beginning of the project. ”

~ Richard E. Biglar; Executive Director, Public Building Authority of the City of Knoxville
