ICS hits $1 billion

To meet the growing demand for quality tenant improvements and other renovations and remodels, Layton established Interior Construction Specialists, Inc. (ICS) 18 years ago. With the backing of Layton, the company got off to a fast start and hasn’t looked back. In early 2018, the company hit a milestone of completing $1 billion of construction work since its inception.


What Our Clients Say

“There’s no other way to put it, the team at Layton Construction has been outstanding. From the very beginning we have been nothing but impressed with them. The difference between a good project and a great project often comes down to how the team handles the problems and issues that arise, and Layton Construction has exceeded my expectations every step of the way. I would work with them again in the future in a heartbeat, without reservation. They’ve earned a customer for life, I wouldn’t partner with anyone else.”

Steve Woolley Director of Operations | Pluralsight

“I’ve had the pleasure at Entrata to work closely with Layton Interior Construction Specialists (“ICS”) over the years both for tenant improvement retrofit work on existing office space, as well as on new construction for our 106,000 sq ft corporate headquarter building in Lehi, Utah. In my opinion, Layton is the best contractor in the state of Utah, as they have the experience and expertise to deliver on time and with exceptional quality. It was never a struggle to work with their contractors and assembled team. They treated us like partners and friends, not just customers. They executed on our vision despite having to begin the TI work, before the core and shell was finished, and despite a very aggressive timeline. They also worked collaboratively and seamlessly with multiple companies simultaneously – including design, construction and architectural firms – to provide us with a beautiful office space, finished on time and on budget. I highly recommend ICS, and especially Dave Knorr and Penn Owens – they are a class act.”

Jared Hunsaker Chief Legal Counsel | Entrata

“Throughout the entire process Layton ICS stayed ahead of the needs of the field crews, keeping everything in order and on time. The willingness of the Layton ICS team to work with the architect – to listen to what was needed, develop a plan, then execute – made this project very enjoyable. As many of us do, we remember the end better than the beginning, and Layton ICS made sure that we did not miss any steps to bring the project to completion. Layton ICS and their subcontractors did a first-rate job of working with Symantec and Cushman & Wakefield to deliver a quality office for the future.”

Lance Elrod Sr. Project Manager | Cushman & Wakefield

“Method Studio has had the opportunity to work with multiple contractors on a variety of projects over the years. When it came to selecting a contractor for our offices, we knew Layton ICS was the right choice for us without question. They had proven that they worked hard to meet budgets in an escalating construction climate, they had proven their integrity and quality, and they had proven their ability to meet tight schedules project after project. As expected, they went above and beyond to meet our project goals and they did so with absolute dedication. So much so, that they even gave personal time on weekends and evenings, with staff from every level doing whatever it took to get things done. We have found them to have the highest level of integrity and quality and will enthusiastically select them again for our next project.”

Becky Hawkins Partner & Senior Principal | Method Studio

“Working with Layton ICS was a great experience, and we’re thrilled with the finished product. Layton did a fantastic job working closely with us and our architect to find ways to not only decrease our budget to fit our needs, but also come up with creative solutions to make our space even more functional. Our headquarters continues to be a place where people want to spend time, both employees and guests. The space has won numerous awards and we’re proud to call it home. We would definitely partner with Layton again in the future and we highly recommend their work.”

Cole Vandenakker Director of Sales | Treager
