Project Experience

Experts in Education Construction

From K-12 to Higher Education, C.D. Smith has extensive experience building state-of-the-art educational facilities. We believe institutes are more than just classrooms. From the physical school buildings to the athletic complexes surrounding them, we develop a complete understanding of your campus and project goals. 

With over 80 years of diverse education construction experience, we understand the constraints of spaces, complex schedules and limited budgets. Our team of experts adds value and minimizes risk for our clients by developing realistic budgets, limiting disruptions to school operations and creating safe construction zones. 

We are there for you

Whether you are looking for a construction manager, general contractor or design-build partner, our goal is to ensure your project is completed on schedule, within budget and with the utmost concern for safety.  We help school boards, committees and other stakeholders ensure every detail is met: from navigating the complexities of school construction financing to making decisions that impact the building’s lifecycle, to defining – and meeting – a schedule that prioritizes student safety.


C.D. Smith Construction. Creating environments that inspire learning.
