Overview

Overview

We have a long and successful history of delivering quality construction and renovation projects to clients, regardless of size or level of complexity. Our teams successfully manage projects in key industry sectors, including residential, hospitality, retail, commercial, senior living and entertainment. We also offer clients specialized teams, particularly in the education and healthcare sectors, that are experienced working under unique conditions, such as operational campuses and sensitive environments.

We are a multi-disciplined builder and heavy/civil contractor. We bring engineered solutions to complex projects of all sizes. We bring qualified management and skilled craftsman to every site. Working in the owner's best interest has always been our primary theme, and has always proven to be in E.J. Smith Construction's long-term interests. Safety, quality and schedule are directly proportionate to the planning and engineering of our work. They, in turn, are directly proportionate to ultimate profitability. We look to provide a working environment where all parties share equally in the success of the project.

Using construction systems that include steel, concrete and wood frame, we build a variety of buildings/structures for clients across public, private, and non-profit sectors. We coordinate owners, subcontractors, banks, surety companies, regulatory agencies and general contractors, to provide the necessary leadership through each phase of construction:

  • pre-construction
  • construction
  • post-construction

With excellent communication, coordination and cooperation skills, the experienced staff offers individualized customer care. Clients benefit from our quality integrated approach and receive consistent, high-quality service regardless of project size, complexity, client needs or location.

Effective planning is crucial to the successful outcome of every project, and the E.J. Smith Construction provides comprehensive pre-construction services. Our clients appreciate the advantage offered by our formal, systematic approach to pre-construction—one based on knowledge and experience.

We offer a comprehensive outline that identifies the timing of all pre-construction activities, and defines the project approach and services, from initial concept through the finalized contract. This allows clients to understand and visualize how their project is progressing through the re-construction process.

Smith Construction Assurance and Quality Control program sets our pre-construction services apart from the competition. Our QAJQC is dedicated to reducing errors and communicating smart solutions to the challenges of design and construction. Though it begins in the design phase, the Quality Assurance and Quality Control program continues through the warranty period and maintains an absolute focus on quality and execution of even the smallest details.

The following services are often included in our pre-construction package:

  • Cost estimating
  • Value and scope management
  • Quality assurance and constructability reviews
  • Cost modeling and cash flow projections
  • Design document assessment and review
  • Green, sustainability, and LEED ideas, pricing and process management
  • Scheduling and planning
  • Permit and utility coordination
  • Life-cycle evaluations

E.J. Smith Construction makes every effort to deliver problem free buildings and take responsibility for what we build. Our Warranty Service program reinforces that commitment. We provide our clients with a complete and fully operational project, the knowledge to use and maintain it, and the assurance that we will be available to help resolve issues should they arise.

At building turnover, we provide:

  • Operations and maintenance manuals
  • On-site training for staff and management

During the warranty period, we provide;

  • Call back service
  • Walk-through at the end of the warranty period

We are adept at managing multiple subcontractors, providing the quality workmanship needed within the project. Our crews help us create shorter and more accurate schedules and uphold our high standards of quality work through various sub-contractors, including excavations, concrete, framing, finish carpentry and painting crews.

Our construction services include:

  • Building, design build, restoration and renovation
  • FulI-time on-site supervision
  • On-going estimating and long-lead item ordering
  • Continuous value engineering
  • Contract negotiations with clients and subcontractors
  • Job cost monitoring and evaluation
  • Schedule development and monitoring
  • Safety training and compliance
  • Quality control and oversight
  • Community outreach and affirmative action coordination

Our ability to attract and retain the highest quality engineers, superintendants and craftsman is what enables us to take on the most complex projects with confidence. Inan industry where risk-reward is not always balance, we must continue to evolve and fmd better ways to engineer and construct. Our long history of successful projects has provided us the experience necessary to compete for future opportunities. Our company prides itself on the individual talents of our people, which when brought together, result in a true team effort.

We have always worked in the best interest of our Owner/Clients. Safety, quality and schedule are always priorities, and experience has taught us that these important standards in the long run ensure profitability and success.
