In early February, Clancy & Theys’ Business Development Director Matt Chambers and Project Manager Mike Svirsko participated in a panel discussion with the YouthBuild program.
YouthBuild provides education, training, and hands‐on work experience to young people between 16 and 24‐years‐old from targeted zip codes within Wake County. It is designed for those who need to obtain a high school diploma or GED, and are facing other life challenges that make it difficult to find and retain meaningful work.
Sitting in the Raleigh Pathway Center, the audience included several young men and women hoping to forge their paths in the construction industry by gaining meaningful skills and experience. They have participated in the program for several months, which included work on a Habitat for Humanity house.
Matt and Mike spoke about their path into the construction industry, as well as their education and backgrounds. They also provided insight into the practice of Business Development and Project Management relevant to the industry.
Clancy & Theys is proud to partner with YouthBuild, and supports the program’s project‐based academic learning and construction skills training in preparation for career placement. YouthBuild participants are improving their future, as well as their communities, by building or renovating homes for low‐income families and transitional housing for the homeless.
In January 2018, Clancy & Theys, as part of the project team, was recognized again for its outstanding Overture Virginia Beach project at the National Association of Home Builder’s Best of 55+ Housing Awards. Hosted this year in Orlando, Florida, the awards are the industry’s only national awards program honoring excellence in building design, marketing and lifestyles in housing for active adults—a showcase for quality housing, innovation and emerging trends that appeal to the demographic.
An active‐adult community in Virginia Beach, VA, Overture Virginia Beach won gold in the “55+ Market Rate Rental Community” category and also took home the grand prize, “Best 55+ Community of the Year.” Along with Clancy & Theys as builder, developer Greystar, Poole & Poole Architecture and interior designer studioSIX5 partnered on the project.
The new Overture Virginia Beach property capitalizes on the site’s waterfront views and includes approximately 20,000 square feet of high‐end amenities, including pickleball courts, fire pits, outdoor kitchens, a gaming room, an arts and crafts room, a yoga room, a salt water heated pool and whirlpool, a breakfast café and bar, a gourmet demonstration kitchen, a library lounge, and a pet spa.
Clancy & Theys partners with Reedy Creek Magnet Middle School to expand after-school robotics program
Clancy & Theys will partner with Reedy Creek Magnet Middle School in Cary for the 2017-2018 school year, to expand the after-school robotics program. As a Robotics Club Sponsor, Clancy & Theys supports the students’ use of important STEM skills, as well as critical thinking and problem solving, to design, build and program their own robots from scratch.
During the 2016-2017 school year, Reedy Creek teamed up with Cyberkids Robotics to offer FIRST LEGO League (FLL) and FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) Robotics teams to its middle school students. The school competed against 20 other teams in RoboWake 2017, a local CyberKids event, earning the First Place Teamwork Award as well as the Overall Champions Award.
The partnership with Clancy & Theys will allow Reedy Creek to expand the after-school robotics program and continue its success. In addition to competing in FLL and FTC, Reedy Creek plans to add a CyberDrones team to its roster this year.
Harry McKinney, Clancy & Theys’ Director of Virtual Design and Construction, has teamed up with Reedy Creeks’ engineering and design faculty to create design lessons and modules for the program’s students. Together, they will lead students in an exploration of their own school building, while focusing on 3D modeling.
Through the after-school robotics program, students are exposed to the fundamentals of robot programming and emerging robotics technologies. Reedy Creek and Clancy & Theys hope to teach students real-world problem solving and applications of robotics technology.

CBS North Carolina Talks with Clancy & Theys About New Tech Programs Helping Fill RTP’s Workforce
CBS North Carolina – WNCN
July 13, 2017
CBS North Carolina visited the Wake Tech RTP Campus construction site to highlight it as an example of local colleges and programs working to fill the workforce driven by companies looking to grow in the Triangle.
This is Wake Tech’s tenth campus, ideally situated close to RTP with a focus on programs developed for some of the largest tech companies in the region. “Enormous amounts of technology are developed into the building with room for expansion in the future,” said Josh Logan, Clancy & Theys’s Site Assistant Superintendent for the RTP campus. Once finished, the new campus will host 7,000 students from the school’s 70,000 student enrollment.
Zach Dixon is a construction management student at Wake Tech, and interning with Clancy & Theys on the Wake Tech RTP campus project. “I like the two-year experience because you get more of a hands-on experience and it’s pretty fun to be on a site with the school,” said Zach. “It’s neat to think I can ride by here in 20 years and know that I was part of the whole campus when it’s done, and know that I was the first student to learn out here,” added Zach.
These types of programs like Wake Tech that customized to meet area companies’ needs, is helping students jump right into open jobs upon graduation.
