Clark came to the Sunshine Coast in 1973 to build a home for some friends and never looked back. He built a number of homes over the next few years before joining Fjord Design and Construction. He soon became President of Fjord and held that position until 1985 when the downturn in the economy stalled the building industry. Clark then became involved in the burgeoning Fish Farming industry. He and his partner spent the next 5 years building a successful business supplying equipment and sites for Fish Farms.
In 1990 Clark turned back to his passion, designing and building, to lead the way to creating what has now become Clark Hamilton - Fine Homebuilding.
From the outset he established himself as one of many quality builders in the area. Clark's presence and influence can be seen throughout much of the downtown core of Sechelt and in many private residences up and down the Coast.
Clark and his wife Linda established a family of five boys (no easy task on its own) coaching many levels of hockey and being involved with Rotary International and the local housing society. As a founding member and first president of our CCBA, Clark is the never ending power house that propels everyone around him forward.
