Builder Bob

My work at Clayco has never been just a job to me. There’s a lot of chemistry between the business, my life, and all the things that we do in the community—they’re all intertwined. The people that I meet are some of the most good-natured and remarkable people around, and many of them have become like family to me.

Together we work on a lot of projects and initiatives, and with many incredible subcontractors, all of which deserve recognition.

Here I will do just that, taking the opportunity to highlight the stories of people who are making a difference, as well as some standout projects and initiatives.

Willis Tower Transformation

Willis Tower Transformation

One of the reasons I love Chicago so much is its magnificent architecture. There are few buildings as iconic as the revamped Willis (formerly Sears) Tower. When it was completed in 1974, it was the world’s tallest building – standing at 1,450 feet...
