  • "I knew immediately Charlie Clayton was the person

    I wanted to build my dream. The combination of Charlie and Randall Thorpe presented a dynamic team, and an attention to detail not often found in commercial construction. Through years of experience and a proven approach, I continue to be impressed with CLR delivery. I look forward to teaming with CLR in the near future on more units.
