Layton Gets Another Top 5 Ranking in Hawaii
Layton Construction has been ranked Hawaii’s #4 contractor in the July issue of Building Industry Hawaii. Layton also picked up a #4 ranking in a recent edition of Pacific Business News.
“Shooting up four spots from No. 8 to No. 4, Layton Construction Co. LLC saw revenues increase by more than $33 million in 2017,” the magazine says. “Projects completed in 2017 include Koloa Landing at Poipu Beach, The Point at Poipu, Kainani Villas and Embassy Suites by Hilton Oahu Kapolei. 2017 also saw Layton honored for its work on the Kapiolani Medical Center Diamond Head Tower. The project received both the General Contractors Association of Hawaii’s 2017 Build Hawaii Grand Award and the NAIOP Kukulu Hale Non-profit Project of the Year award.”
“Layton has a rich tradition of building in the public sector,” says Tyler Dillon, executive vice president. “We’ve built everything from local schools to office buildings and recreation centers to sewer treatment facilities. It’s rewarding to complete projects for our public sector partners and we work hard to give them the very best product at a budget that’s watched so closely by their constituents.”
Will Summerhays, executive vice president, sees potential for growth in some sectors and a slowing down in others. “We’re seeing growth in hospitality rebranding and renovation, along with popularity in multi-family housing, and we expect that growth to continue through 2018 and 2019,” he says.
Layton project manager Jennifer Sakaba is also featured in the magazine's women building Hawaii story.
