Mark III Construction Wins California Region Best Projects Award

VSP Optical Laboratory Project Highlighted in Engineering News-Record's Manufacturing Category

SACRAMENTO, CA--(Marketwired - October 27, 2015) - Mark III Construction is pleased to announce its selection for Engineering News-Records 2015 Best Projects Award in the Manufacturing category -- California Region for the VSP Optical Laboratory & Manufacturing Facility located in Folsom, California.

ENR Best Projects Award recipients are selected by prominent Architecture, Engineering and Construction professionals nationwide, and are considered one of commercial construction's most prestigious honors.

"This project is a perfect example of Mark III's 'Power of One' model," said Mike O'Brien, Pre-Construction Manager, Mark III Construction. "This project was a partnership from start to finish. By working together and managing the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing trades as a package, we were able to find considerable savings for VSP as well as deliver on a tight timeline."

VSP's 80,000 square foot optical laboratory project consisted of a combination of relocated and new optical equipment, and implementation of state-of-the-art techniques for making prescription lenses. Mark III Construction partnered with DesCor Builders, Cooper Oates Air Conditioning, Comstock Johnson Architects, among others to deliver the multi-trade, design-build project. Mark III Construction employed a unique project management style by acting as the prime contractor and managing multiple trades, while subcontracting the general construction portion to DesCor Builders.

"The Mark III 'Power of One' approach was the extenuating reason for the project's success," said Rob Lynch, CEO, VSP Global. "They were able to meet unyielding timelines; bringing diligence, tenacity, and producing quality work in all trades they performed on the project."
