Clayco was recently the builder on a project for USAA Real Estate. Our team constructed a 160,000-square-foot speculative warehouse for the company in Dallas, Texas.

USAA Real Estate has been mission-driven for the past 40 years. They are Energy Star’s most-awarded real estate firm, and have strong commitments to sustainability, corporate social responsibility, and governance.

Both USAA Real Estate and our Clayco team are committed to bettering our communities, and this is evident in our values as well as the eco-friendly elements implemented in this project. The facility was constructed with cross-laminated timber (CLT), a precision-designed wood product that replaces the concrete tilt-wall panels of a typical industrial warehouse. Using CLT instead of steel and concrete reduces carbon emissions by almost half, and it also offers a more aesthetic design compared to conventional warehouse design.

It is great to work with organizations that prioritize the well-being of people and our planet. I look forward to how our collaboration improves the neighborhoods where we operate and beyond!
