The late Alan W. Layton could once be found in his business suit at a jobsite with his concrete boots on, helping the crew with a concrete placement. He is a legend among employees for his insistence on a clean worksite, as well as a frugal emphasis that concrete form fasteners be collected for reuse, as there was value in those materials. Those early philosophies are still at the root of company operations as his son David S. Layton calls the shots today.

At the forefront of technology, Layton Construction is recognized for its use of products such as BIM 360 Field and other building information modeling tools and resources. The contractors commitment to safety is foremost, which is proven with an EMR of 0.48.

The contractor has increased its revenues in the past five years by almost 96%. Coming out of the recession, company revenues were just above $600 million. Success can be attributed to outstanding work that keeps customers coming back. The contractor has worked on projects in the hospitality, healthcare, government, distribution, education, and retail sectors.

“In coming decades, we trust that concrete will continue to play a prominent role in the success of our company, as we continue to rely upon the same values and principles of construction that have sustained us for over six decades,” says Layton.
