Our Philosophy

the Company

Since the founding of the firm SMA has created practical, innovative solutions based on proven engineering principles and construction experience. From our senior engineers to our designers, SMA has personnel with field experience in construction.

Philosophy

We believe that appropriate designs are developed individually, with senior engineers interacting directly with clients. There are no "canned" solutions at SMA. Through comprehensive dialogues between each client and SMA senior engineers, project requirements can be completely defined and solutions created which meet all the requirements of use, budget, schedule and environment.

Project Management

Smith Miller Associates was established by engineers based on principles of design excellence and client service. SMA provides a professional environment that stimulates creativity and is rewarding.
 

Our Process

SMA designs engineering that reflects an institution's cultural identity and strategic vision. We direct a highly collaborative, multidisciplinary team process to plan, program and design spaces that promote healthy, flexible and productive work environments. SMA is committed to Integrated Project Delivery teams, Knowledge Based Design, Lean processes, and early involvement of owners, designers, contractors and users, to develop solutions suited to each client.

Knowledge Based Design

SMA shares the expertise and knowledge of each team member through Knowledge Based Design (KBD). We organize projects around multidisciplinary systems, empowering component team members to solve and integrate solutions collaboratively throughout the pre-design, design and construction process. At SMA, KBD is a transformative process that focuses on innovation, knowledge, team organization and collaboration.

Integrated Project Delivery 

 SMA is a pioneer in Integrated Project Delivery (IPD). We started using IPD methodology since our inception in 2006. IPD harnesses the talents and insights of all participants to maximize efficiency, from pre-design through occupancy. All disciplines work collaboratively to make decisions that impact cost, schedule and other critical factors--ultimately delivering a better project for the client.
