VP of HR Connie Coon on stairs of C.D. Smith Construction Corporate Office in Fond du Lac Wisconsin

“I've worked with C.D. Smith for over a decade, and their ability to deliver projects on schedule and on budget is remarkable. We've worked through recessions, material shortages and a pandemic. They take responsibility for a project and see it through, a true partner. They also continue to search for value engineering options and ways to find savings beyond the design process and all the way through completion.”  -Mark Geall, Principal and Founder, Tanesay Development

The Fall 2022 Issue of Beneath the Hard Hat® celebrates our team’s ability to shift focus and add value where our clients need us, from project concept to completion and beyond. 

THANK YOU for being part of our construction community now and in the future.
