Every Clayco
Project Is an
Innovation Story

You’ll never hear us say, “but that’s the way it’s always been done.”  We constantly seek out new technologies, new methods and new ways to execute high-quality projects. We’ve been innovating since our inception in 1984, from being one of the first to utilize a full-room computer server to the data-collecting project drones we utilize today.

Each project we develop is not only woven with innovation, but driven by our intrinsic core values. They are the values that drive us further. They are values that set Clayco apart and will in turn, set your project apart.
