Other projects completed by Clark Engineers:

Industrial:
We have designed many industrial structures, including a ball mill foundation, a 25-foot deep concrete pit for a steel sheet splitter, and a 16-foot deep pit for testing full size fiberglass underground storage tanks.

Commercial:
Commercial projects range from a twenty-five thousand square-foot shopping center in Tomball, Texas to small commercial buildings and foundations.

Manufacturing:

Clark Engineers designed 21 fiberglass buildings on Steel skid mounts placed across the Lake Ponchatrain Causeway in New Orleans, LA. These buildings were designed for 140 mph wind load and were shipped in two pieces then bolted together on site.

Residential:
Clark Engineers has successfully designed hundreds of residential foundations in and around the greater Montgomery County in Texas. A residential remodel on Lake Houston included the addition of a 1700 square-foot room with 25-foot high sloped roof. Clark Engineers regularly consults on foundation and structural related problems in the North Houston and the Greater Montgomery County region.

Clark Engineers is a member of the Foundation Performance Association located in Houston, TX.

Analysis:
Clark Engineers uses NASTRAN for Windows and has analyzed and design many complex structures. These include a water treatment cell for 50 psi internal pressure, many large deflection models for circular flat fiberglass plates, and a 30,000-gallon underground storage tank with an internal baffle surrounded by soil.
