Centene Corporation, a leading multi-national healthcare enterprise, is investing more than $1 billion to develop an 80-acre campus that will accommodate approximately 6,000 employees when completed. —
This development will feature office space, an early childhood development center, a training center, as well as walking trails and water features. The design will preserve and take advantage of the campus’s environment with an emphasis on providing open spaces and natural light, and embracing the site’s natural features.
Clayco will be responsible for construction and sitework and Rafco Properties is managing the overall development as project manager. Architecture, interiors, and planning firm LS3P is the architect and interior designer; LandDesign is the site planner; and Uzun+Case is the structural engineer. Syska Hennessy Group will be providing the mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection engineering.
“We are proud to collaborate again with Centene Corporation as they expand their presence with this dynamic project,” said Clayco Executive Chairman and Founder Bob Clark. “We are bringing together a strong team that will succeed in meeting Centene’s high standards and growth needs.”
We Become Local Where We Work
Block Love Charlotte
Clayco has partnered with the Block Love Charlotte team for outreach events through the year including providing warm meals, clothing, and coats to the individuals experiencing hardship in the community. Deborah Woolard and the Calvin Alexander Family have been instrumental in integrating the Clayco team into this form of community engagement.
Our Centene East Coast Headquarters jobsite has hosted several CCDI students and Clayco summer interns this past year. Ranging from high school to college, these future construction professionals receive hands-on experience and an opportunity even at entry level to influence the process which impacts the results we deliver.
Charlotte Kids Fest
Our Clayco Team had a blast at the 2022 Charlotte Kids Fest! Our team was set up in the Go Zone and ready to teach kids about construction and let the kids interact with the machinery. Thank you to everyone who came out to the event and a big thanks to Blythe Development for the use of their equipment!
Congratulations to Llovani Martinez! This CCDI Charlotte student graduated high school and our local team showed up to celebrate this milestone with custom “Proud Clayco Crew 2022” t-shirts. Llovani has been a CCDI intern at Clayco’s Centene East Coast Headquarters jobsite and we are excited to announce Llovani is joining our Clayco team full time!
Steel Fabrication Tour
Our Clayco intern and project engineer group got together to tour SteelFab, Inc’s top-of-the-line fabrication facility. It was a great way for these young professionals to see how all the pieces come together from start to finish. Thank you to SteelFab for hosting us and offering this cool learning opportunity.
