Rick Lewis started on the Cleary Field team in 2009 with no construction background. However, the labor intensive environment, and admiration of being outside, helped form him into the Leadman he is today.

“Starting out and working on the Cleary Field Team made me a better person and drove me to challenge myself”

Rick Lewis, Leadman-Foreman in Training, said.

“I wouldn’t trade an experience with any of my crew members for the world.”

We care about our Employees. Cleary utilizes the Work Smart/Work Safe in-house safety program to properly train Employees, which reduces accidents.

Cleary provides the latest safety equipment, tools, and techniques. Crews use aerial Work Platforms and the latest in Fall Protection to reduce climbing risks and exposures.

Job tasks include physical labor, preparing building sites, constructing pre-engineered post-frame structures, operating hand and power tools, etc.

A common Career Path for an Entry Level Crew person would be to progress to a Crew Leadperson who assists the Foreman in running the job and overseeing other crew members. After gaining experience and progressing through the Company’s Foreman Training Program, Crew personnel have opportunities to advance to a Foreman level – responsible for leading and supervising a Crew of three (3) to four (4) others.
