Clancy & Theys Construction Company was founded in 1949 in Raleigh, North Carolina.  Founders E.I. Clancy and J.C. Theys—brothers-in-law—started out building homes and then shifted to commercial construction during the 1950s.  The success of the company, we believe, has been based on the integrity of our founders and on their commonsense business principles that still guide the company’s work today: high quality standards, precise estimating, fair and honest practices, and a loyal corps of experienced employees who are treated as members of an extended-family team.

Clancy & Theys’ local market share expanded and the company moved into new markets.  Our firm opened offices in 1984 to Wilmington, North Carolina; in 1989 in Newport News, Virginia; in 1991 in Orlando, Florida; and in 1995 in Charlotte, North Carolina.  Division vice presidents were promoted from within and now have generous autonomy as CEOs of their respective operations.

Although company-wide we have a great diversity of project types, our Central Florida office focuses primarily on public sector projects and repeat private owners.  Our list of satisfied educational clients includes Orange County Public Schools, Seminole County Public Schools, the School Board of Osceola County, Valencia College, and the University of Central Florida to name just a few.
