Centene Corporation, a leading multi-national healthcare enterprise, invested more than $1 billion to develop an 80-acre campus for 6,000 of its employees – and Clayco is helping to build it!

Construction has been ongoing since 2020 and has been developed in multiple phases – the first being the main 770,000 square-foot, Class A office building and a 2,400-space parking garage. The development will feature office space, an early childhood development center, walking trails, water features, and more! The design also highlights the campus environment with open spaces, natural light, and the site’s natural features.

We are working with Centene Corporation to expand its presence through this dynamic project with a strong team that will succeed in meeting its high standards and growth needs. Clayco is also proud to collaborate with Rafco Properties as project manager, the architecture, interiors, and planning firm LS3P as architect and interior designer; LandDesign as the site planner; and Uzun+Case as our structural engineer. Syska Hennessy Group will also be providing mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection engineering.

Our job site has hosted several Construction Career Development Initiative (CCDI) students and summer interns this past year. One CCDI Charlotte student, Llovani Martinez, recently graduated high school and our local team celebrated this milestone with custom “Proud Clayco Crew 2022” t-shirts. Llovani interned at Clayco’s Centene East Coast Headquarters and we are excited to announce that Llovani will be joining our Clayco team full time!

This is a perfect example of how Clayco commits to community improvement and societal change through the art and science of building. I look forward to seeing what comes next!
