More about Layne Thompson
Layne has a Masters of Business Administration from Boise State University along with a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management from BYU. For over a decade, he has worked as an industry leader focusing on the construction process and what makes a project succeed for the owner, architect, contractor and subcontractors. Whether a lump sum bid, CMGC, or Design Build, Layne creates a team environment where everyone can excel. He has the ability to provide seamless solutions from preconstruction through construction, thus allowing each project to be designed to budget and managed successfully to completion.
Layne’s passion for construction originated from his intrigue with architecture and the creation of space within the built environment. Experiencing how a project can be first conceived virtually and then realized in the real world never gets old and drives him to this day. Layne’s background includes roles of Project Engineer, Estimator, Project Manager, Preconstruction Manager and Principal on numerous high-end residential and commercial projects. He strives to use ingenuity and collaboration to capture value for his clients by building better, faster and more efficient projects.
In the spring of 2014, Layne joined the Magleby team and jumped at the challenge of managing the newly founded Magleby Construction Sun Valley group. Later that year, Layne’s wife, Kellie, and their three children moved to the Wood River Valley from Jackson Hole and have since enjoyed calling the area home. Layne enjoys spending time in the outdoors cycling, skiing, backpacking, rafting and fishing.
Layne is a proud member of his local NAHB and AIA chapters and serves as a member of the BSU Construction Management Industry Advisory Board.
