Building Excellence is committed to liberating 100 construction owners from
overwhelm by improving their people, process and profits by 2024. 

Will you be one of them?

Having witnessed her family lose their home, property, and retirement plan during the 2008 recession, Layla McGlone vowed to help others avoid this fate. As the CEO of Building Excellence, this veteran coach champions construction companies to grow their teams and profits. She empowers owners to optimize their resources, simplify processes and run a "rinse and repeat" business with a thriving team.


The grit, drive and determination of construction leaders inspires me! They rarely balk at a new challenge or an opportunity to take a risk.

Growing up as a daughter of a roofer, my father modeled integrity in his work and loyalty to his team and his subs.

I’m clearly not a laborer, but I did work digging pier block holes, and painting home exteriors. The majority of my career has been in communication, including different fields from broadcast news; corporate team development; the mentoring of nonprofit teams and ultimately to coaching and consulting of business owners.

No matter where my skills are used, it is my pursuit to provide BIG picture vision with outside insight to bring change. Ultimately, I give voice to my client’s expertise and empower them expand their influence as leader in industry.

Like many of you, my family is WHY I do this work. I want to model strong character and work ethic for our daughter, provide for our needs and serve in the community we love.  Central Oregon has been my home for nearly 20 years and I’ve witnessed the hardships and the triumphs in construction and I’m determined to help create more wins!

Hope & faith are keys that unlock what’s possible.

When approaching a new leader or business I do so with great confidence and expectancy, seeking the very best way to uniquely deliver:
