A Foundation of Trust

As a respected commercial construction company in Central New York, we believe that trust must be earned, with every decision, and every action.

It’s the greatest reward for a job well done.

When it comes to our clients, we're all ears.

We value your best interests and know there is nothing more effective in improving the quality of our product than your insight. That’s why we keep you involved in the decision-making process, helping to define our goals and monitor our success. We are firm believers in an open dialogue and working transparency. As such, we give you access to all information about your project. We protect your bottom line and cut unnecessary costs wherever possible. Above all, we demand excellence and hold ourselves accountable for our work; if something’s not right, we fix it.

Maybe that’s why 99% of our customers rehire or refer us.

In 1966, Richard Hoyt left his family’s custom home construction business to start a light commercial construction company.

Since our founding, Syracuse construction company Hayner Hoyt has grown to build a diverse range of commercial projects, including hospitals and healthcare facilities, warehouses, manufacturing plants, distribution centers, hotels, financial institutions, nursing homes and churches.

Our excellent relationship with our clients has enabled us to expand our service area beyond upstate New York to include New England and the MidAtlantic regions.

We follow our principles


We are accountable for all we do; if something isn't right, our focus is not who to blame, but how to fix it.


We build relationships that have a positive impact on our clients’ business by going above and beyond what’s expected.


We work together, across boundaries, in the best interests of our clients, our partners, and our community.


We believe in leading by example. We place team before self and offer positive support to all project stakeholders.


We believe in honesty and integrity above all; we work to earn the confidence and trust of our clients every day.


We do our best to protect the safety and health of our employees, our subcontractors and our clients.

We demand excellence across the board

We create positive impact for our customers and strive to continually improve our skills, and our company, to work smarter, faster, and better.

We make sure the right people—those with the top-tier skills and abilities—are in the right places, solving problems and offering insight in the decision-making process. We believe by distributing influence, sharing responsibility and accountability, we improve quality and efficiency and cut waste.

We lead by example

Each year we select opportunities for our staff to make a lasting impact in our neighborhoods. We run these projects just as we would any other, and deliver the same exceptional building results our customers have come to know and expect.

Salvation Army

We support the Salvation Army’s mission to encourage and empower those in need. We offer our leadership on their board of directors and have supported their organization with human resource services. Each holiday season our employees and their families help prepare holiday meal baskets for those in need.

Union Park Playground 
on Syracuse’s Northside

Twenty-five Hayner Hoyt team members spent three days installing a new playground in order to give neighborhood kids a safe place to play and inspire community pride.

Washington Square Park Playground Build

Each year we dedicate resources to help build a new playground  for the kids in our community.  This year we helped update the equipment at Washington Square Park in the City of Syracuse.

Our Commitment to United Way

We are proud of our partnership with the United Way of CNY.  We have worked on several projects with the United Way Young Leaders program and encourage our employees to take an active role in giving back to the community.

We strive to be worthy of recognition
