Become a Client
Smith Carter excels at high risk, high profile projects around the globe by developing innovative solutions for technically challenging environments. Our work elevates the health, safety and sustainability of our world.
What does this mean to you as a client?
It means that you get the benefit of working with a team of experts who is as committed to the design of your project as you are to the purpose for which it will be used. Smith Carter’s integrated architecture and engineering team designs and manages projects from start to finish. The benefit of choosing a firm with an in-house team is you get an acute level of knowledge and the ability to mobilize quickly to respond to your needs. This includes subject matter expertise and a keen understanding of how various disciplines and factors need to come together to keep projects within scope and on track.
Smith Carter is one of the longest operating privately owned integrated architecture and engineering firms, and one of the reasons for our longevity is the recognition early on that the international nature of business requires specialty and desire to stay ahead of the curve.
This is why we have focused on the design and engineering of complex projects in the areas of Science and Technology, Health Care, Security and Defence, and Urban Impact. Immersing ourselves in these key areas has allowed us to develop knowledge, research and pioneer innovations and showcase our expertise over six decades. Focusing on the areas we excel is accomplished by an in-house diverse, interdisciplinary team of over 170 architects, engineers, interior designers, landscape architects and urban planners. The result is a truly collaborative and unparalleled base from which your project team is custom assembled.
We understand that although the process is important, it means less to you than the outcome – but you can rest assured that our firm is highly skilled in complex project management, all facets of construction project delivery, and the integrated design process. This means that you will not only achieve inspired and functional design, but that we will also consider your concerns of operational effectiveness and long term maintenance so that you are making informed decisions before the project is constructed.
Today this is even more challenging as the construction landscape, project funding models and management philosophies are more varied and complex than ever. Our experience in cost management, complex project delivery, design savvy and deep understanding of how buildings must holistically function means we can help you make informed choices for the long run.
