Building Our Community
Highland Hospital has made important contributions to the health and well-being of our community for more than 80 years, as well as providing thousands of jobs for local residents. The ATR Project will continue that tradition of medical care and employment opportunities. In fact, the project will give a potent shot in the arm to the local economy, as well as the local arts community, by creating contracting opportunities for firms, and by commissioning new works by local artists.
The $668-million ATR Project will create a wide spectrum of opportunities for local contractors and vendors. Alameda County and Clark Design/Build of California, the local firm responsible for the project's design and construction, are committed to involving other community businesses as well. For more information, see Contracting Opportunities.
The Alameda County Art Commission is committed to maintaining an innovative, high-quality public art program, with a collection that enlivens public spaces and inspires the community. The ATR Project offers a unique opportunity to bring new local art into a major new public venue. For more information, see Public Art.
