Clancy and John Theys.  Mr. Clancy’s sons have run the company since 1986 and in this time have also opened offices in Orlando, Florida; Wilmington and Charlotte, North Carolina; and Newport News, Virginia.  The success of the company, we believe, has been based on the integrity of our founders and on their common-sense 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.  For the last two decades, the Florida Division has built an honorable reputation in the construction of educational facilities for both K-12 and higher education clients.

Our business philosophy is based on the conviction that we must “go the extra mile” for our clients, treating them fairly, honestly, and professionally in every transaction.  New employees learn quickly that Clancy & Theys’ corporate culture is deeply ingrained—treating clients fairly means always meeting or surpassing the construction industry’s highest standards.  Our goal is to create lasting relationships with satisfied clients by always doing the right things, the right way.  That’s The Clancy Way.

From lump sum contracts to design-build, we will be building upon a formidable reputation for quality, customer service, and best-in-value delivery. With our wealth of “in house” design and construction professionals, we will be able to quickly tap into these resources, enabling us to streamline design-to-construction in a manner that is efficient, cost effective, and truly value-added, making us and our Clients more competitive. Our staff consists of seasoned, nationally renowned construction professionals putting the firm on a solid launching pad.  Leveraging their combined eight decades of high performance, and track records delivering cost effective and creative solutions for complex, deadline driven projects, Raymond Construction is well positioned to successfully meet our objectives. 


Our commitment to clients is simple.  Your project will be continuously viewed through a “risk mitigation lens” and afforded meticulous, principal level attention daily.  Yet, we will never lose sight of your “big picture”.  These commitments are critical to your success and ours in the competitive, high-risk, and sometimes volatile business of construction and real estate development.  Proven project management practices, winning records of cost containment and schedule maintenance, unbridled commitment to the Client, and a diligent pursuit of perfection will be the drivers for delivering projects of the highest standards.

Rhodes+Brito Architects ~ Who We Are
Rhodes+Brito Architects Inc. is a full-service architectural design company, owned by registered architects Ruffin Rhodes, AIA, LEED AP and Max Brito, AIA.
Since the firm’s inception in 1996, Ruffin and Max have made a commitment to providing quality architectural services to the marketplace. We believe that our success is predicated on our values and beliefs about architecture itself. It is our sincere belief that architecture is not just about schedules, cost constraints, and value engineering — it’s about people. It is about establishing great relationships with staff and users to understand their needs and goals. It is about creating spaces and environments that are functional, humane, and pleasant for people to work and live in. When these goals are accomplished, along with meeting schedules, budgeting, and quality control, then a project is successful.
Our services include, but are not limited to: architecture, space planning, interior design, master planning, site analysis, programming, eminent domain, and feasibility studies. Rhodes+Brito has worked on a variety of projects and contract types, for education, commercial, transportation, and municipal clients in Florida. We are also set up with the latest computer technologies.
What is unique and different about our service is that we are a true “hands on” firm. Our commitment to you is that throughout the life of each project a minimum of one of our firm’s principals is directly involved (often in the role of project manager) with users and staff. We believe that our company’s success has been directly proportional to the quality of this service. Celebrating a 22 year history of success in Central Florida, Rhodes+Brito Architects was recently bestowed the honor of being named “Firm of the Year” by the Orlando Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), one of the most prestigious and influential professional organizations in the United States.
