Clancy & Theys Construction Company was founded in Raleigh, North Carolina in 1949 by brothers-in-law E.I. Clancy and John Theys. Mr. Clancy’s sons, David T. “Tim” Clancy and Joel T. “Tick” Clancy have managed the company since 1986 as president and executive vice president, respectively. Our headquarters remains in Raleigh, NC, but we expanded to four additional locations – Wilmington and Charlotte, NC, Newport News, VA and Orlando, FL – between 1984 and 1995.
During the post-WWII construction boom, we concentrated on residential construction, but soon after pivoted our focus to commercial work. Listed among the top U.S. builders of office buildings, hotels, religious and cultural buildings, reconstruction and renovation projects, and warehouse and distribution projects, Clancy & Theys has long been lauded for its capacity to handle a wide range of project types. We are also known for our specialties, including research and development facilities, adaptive re-use of vintage buildings, and renovation and preservation of historic buildings.
Clancy & Theys is known nationwide for its excellence in the construction industry. Recognized for our spirit and practice of collaboration, Clancy & Theys is among the nation’s Top 100 CM at-Risk providers. We are also proud to be at the forefront of technology in the construction industry, using Building Information Modeling (BIM) and tablets for efficient field communication and planning. Also listed among the nation’s Top 100 Green Contractors, we pride ourselves upon using sustainable construction practices, including LEED®.
