Case Study Layton Construction Extends Data Availability


Layton Construction is a national general contracting firm with nine offices across the United States. With $1.5 billion in annual revenue, Layton consistently ranks in the ENR List of Top 100 Contractors. A customer since 2001, Layton initially chose CMiC to streamline their fragmented project management information. To mitigate significant losses in write-downs resulting from challenges with self-performed concrete jobs, Layton developed—using CMiC software—a module solution called the “Concrete Scorecard.” 

Before Mobile, we had to go back to the trailer to find the answer to an RFI, or even to begin asking an RFI related question. Now, superintendents out in the field can discuss an issue right then and there by pulling it up right on their mobile device. It’s a huge time saver and the easiest way to access information.” — Jeff Metcalf, Dir. Information Systems, Layton Construction. 

The Challenge 

  • Find a way to allow users to work seamlessly across desktops, tablets and smartphones—without data latency or loss. 

How CMiC Helped 

  • All project information is modified locally onto the device, both offline and automatically (or manually) syncing into the database upon reconnecting using CMiC Mobile apps.

  • CMiC optimizes the user journey across devices—the data, security measures and permissions are the same in both online and offline modes. 


  • Layton reports that 50% of their records are now being created through CMiC Mobile.   

  • The quality of the information is more accurate because superintendents can make immediate jobsite notes by creating daily journals with any smartphone or tablet.
