Commercial Construction

Helping serve the four-county business community for over 30 years

Smith Development Corporation knows business

Over 30 years ago, our roots began in commercial construction and we’re still going strong

Our beginnings and values

In 1986, Smith Development Corporation was formed specifically for commercial development. From the start, the company established a reputation in the tri-county area for outstanding work. Our dedication to understanding and meeting the business needs of our clients continues to this day.

In your travels, you’ve probably seen our work. We have a long list of local and regional clients that turn to us to support their ever-expanding businesses.

The hallmark of Smith Development Corporation is our integrity to excellence and dependability. Your business is too important to leave it to a fly-by-night contractor. That’s why for over 30 years, companies of all sizes have confidently chose the Smith name.

Our work and process

Our firm has a complete construction management staff that includes managers, designers, and field superintendents. We also have a complete staff of rough and finish carpenters that have been employed by our firm for many years.

Over the past 30 years our firm has developed the Smith Team Concept, which has enabled us to develop a strong, dependable and competitive team of subcontractors and suppliers. We are experienced in retail shopping centers, single standalone buildings, and tenant build-outs. We also offer design/build for any project.

If you need the job done right and on time, there’s no better company to turn to.

Another key benefit is our absolute commitment to safety. We work thoroughly and efficiently because safety is paramount and built in at every step of your construction project. This ensures that our efforts are to bring the right ideas and know-how to the table.
