What Our Clients Are Saying

Housing Development Construction Management Residential Urban Project Planning Building Design C.D. Smith Construction Firm

“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 now a pandemic. They take responsibility for a project and see it through, a true development partner. They also continue to search for value engineering options, ways to find savings, beyond the design process and all the way through completion. When I commented to our bankers that we were surprised that C.D. Smith could deliver a project through the pandemic, they just nodded their heads and said, 'Not surprising. You have the right general contractor.'” - Mark Geall, Founder, Tanesay Development
