Troy DyerPresident Top
Luxury Residential and Light Commercial Consultation and General Contracting
Troy passionately pursued his career and education in practical construction and construction management through the Carpenters Union four year program. As a third generation carpenter he was immediately placed in internships beside senior project managers at an early age. Through the internships with high volume commercial construction companies, this lead to a faster progression through the training which advanced him into supervisory positions early in his career. With that knowledge gained he moved into the custom residential sector of the industry for two years before leaving Southern California.
Settling in Durango Colorado in 1993, he and his father Terry formed the Dyerbilt companies in 1994. Focused primarily on the upper end luxury home market, they grew the company from $400,000 to just under $18 million annually in fourteen years. One notable project included 60% of the vertical building of single family homes -and multi-family town homes- in The Glacier Club. As Vice President in charge of business development, Troy sat on boards with the Big Brothers/ Big Sisters organization and The Home Builders Association of Southwest Colorado. The team earned several awards in design, business management and environmental crusades through various organizations and publications both locally and nationally.
In 2009 Dyerbilt combined their knowledge and efforts with a competitor to prosper in a new market environment. Troy maintained the position as President to which he developed the new business and maintained a strong name and brand recognition in the community. Known for their strength and second to none quality the company was able to weather the ‘Great Recession’ before his departure and it’s restructuring in July of 2013.
With the market trending upward locally, in the summer of 2013 Troy created and now operates as the president of the newly formed Veritas Fine Homes Inc. Veritas’ focus is toward a more intimate experience for its clients while providing exceptional service and quality in both the luxury residential and light commercial sectors. In just four years Veritas has grown from $480,000 to almost $7M in annual volume, and has since earned two unsolicited national publication recognitions and four consecutive on-line service and design awards.

Terry DyerSenior Project Consultant - Construction Manager Top
As a second generation carpenter, Terry began his career in Southern California at the age of 18. Starting in the carpenter’s apprenticeship program through the Carpenters Union of Southern California, he embraced the work ethic and formal education, graduated 1 year early at the top of his class, and immediately formed Dyer Bros. Construction with his older brother.
Early work included custom homes in and around Pasadena, CA, many of which focused on period- specific craftsman style. Terry eventually moved into the commercial sector with focus on medical and bio-tech facilities. Terry was instrumental in the early development of Amgen’s campus in Newbury Park, CA from 1981 through 1990. During the Amgen term alone he produced over $50M and 310,000 square feet of R&D facilities, production laboratories, testing laboratories, shipping and receiving and their 100,000 s.f. executive headquarters. In parallel with their work at Amgen, they built production and R&D facilities for one of Johnson and Johnson’s sister companies Iolab, as well as the Del Amo Diagnostic Center in Torrance, CA, several churches, public works facilities, car dealerships and small chemical plants throughout Southern California.
Dyer Bros.’s effective, efficient, and genuine hands-on general contracting skills and knowledge of the business earned the brothers an early retirement in 1991. Terry then chose Southwest Colorado the place to spend his life where he decided to come out of retirement, and along with son Troy founded Dyerbilt Construction in 1994. After Dyerbilt’s merger with a local competitor in spring of 2009 Terry performed as a Senior Project Manager and primary Field Operations Manager until the company’s dissolution in 2013.
Terry is often hand-selected by clients because of his ability to communicate and present ideas that always fall in the best interest of the finished product and the team. Be it through material selection, best construction practices, value engineering, or detailing to achieve authentication, he has the years of wisdom and passion that the luxury home and light commercial industry deserves and currently does so through Veritas Fine Homes Inc.
