After receiving his degree from USF, Chris Clare joined our Oklahoma City BURG as a Field Engineer. In this role, he worked on several parking garages, including a tilt-up parking structure with an architectural finish. Chris quickly progressed to a Project Lead and is currently running the OU Medical Center Patient Bed Tower, which has been one of the most complex structural projects for the Oklahoma City BURG. The 8-story structure includes a 378,000 square feet addition (28,000 cubic yards). Due to the logistic constraints, only one crane can be utilized at a time on site. This requires an immense amount of detailed planning from the project team. For example, most placements have been comprised of approximately 100 tons of rebar, requiring close coordination with the crane and steel contractor. The most unique feature on this project is the concrete encasement of the 3-story steel truss that is required to support the cantilevered portion of the building.
Chris is an avid outdoorsman. The outlets for his energy include dirt bikes, camping, hiking, rock climbing, fishing, and hunting.
Thank you Chris for being part of our Oklahoma City team!!
