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.
