“Over the next 10 years, we’ll reach a point where nearly everything has become digitized.”

– Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft

Clayco delivers high-performing data centers fast. As experts in integrated delivery, we work alongside mission critical design teams and engineers more collaboratively and quickly than the competition using lean construction techniques.

Delivering a high-performing project requires creative solutions. Our 30+ year mission critical portfolio molded an in-house team focused on efficient prefabrication designs for both the building structure and equipment. We laser scan the project throughout construction and match the results with every BIM model, ensuring an accurate as-built.

People build data centers. Most hyperscale data centers are built in rural communities. Every project team makes a local commitment to positively impacting their community, building local moral and attracting local labor. We also set-up promising career paths with top talent in larger near-by cities.

Our in-house commissioning experts come from the best data center commissioning agencies. These associates are involved in planning the project at concept to overseeing commissioning at completion. Their input ensures a seamless tagging process.

As members of the data center race, we also understand confidentiality in project and design. We use proven practices of sensitivity without affecting the schedule. Mission critical buildings are built quickly, safely and confidentially.

Technology changes every second, and our team is committed to staying at the forefront of market trends. Some trends we’re focused on include:
