One of the unique aspects of Smith Brothers Homes is that we are architects, designers, and builders. That means we provide a single source of responsibility from project conception through completion. Design/Build allows us to pursue standards of excellence that are difficult to realize in a typical architect-designer-builder relationship. While we also often work with outside architects and designers, it is usually under this same Design/Build concept.
We have developed our firm for the purpose of marrying exceptional design and exceptional construction. Our goal is to make every project real through a collaborative and transparent process. Collaboration and transparency allow our clients to make informed choices throughout the entire project.
