Blurring on-site construction methods through off-site building solutions

We’re transforming the site-built homebuilding process through off-site construction and supply for Clayton Properties Group®, our site-built home division.

Precise construction through advanced drafting and robotic assembly delivers consistent materials, every time. The result? Quality homes with decreased build times that are completed when promised.

Driving change through innovation

We seek great ideas - big and small - from team members that improve customer and team member experiences, identify new business opportunities and solve simple and complex organizational problems.

From modifying a production line process that betters home construction to thoughts about how to expand our sustainability efforts, we gather, collaborate, evaluate and implement ideas from everyone to Drive Change.
