Layton Construction Named Contractor of the Year by State Division

Press Release

February 17, 2014

Salt Lake City — Layton Construction Co, Inc. has been named 2013 Contractor of the Year by the State of Utah Division of Facilities Construction and Management (DFCM). The award is based upon the completion of construction projects awarded to Layton by DFCM, including the Veterans Administration (VA) Nursing Homes in Payson and Ivins, and the Spence and Cleone Eccles Football Center at the University of Utah.

“Layton provided excellent leadership over their design/build teams on each (VA) project,” said Jim Russell, state DFCM construction program manager. “The projects were not only completed ahead of schedule, they also passed a week-long complicated Federal VA inspection process the first time.”

“The Layton team worked tirelessly to complete the project on time, even with surprises that could have delayed completion or raised costs,” said Dave McKay, DFCM construction program manager, speaking of the University of Utah Football Center. “The Layton team went out of their way to visit other Pac-12 facilities bringing a wealth of experience to the project, yet they remained flexible and adaptive to the needs and circumstances presented by the existing facilities and site.”

The award was presented by DFCM division director P. Joshua Haines at the Associated General Contractors (AGC) Utah Annual Awards Meeting on Jan. 25.
