Smith Construction Services
Construction Management Services (CMS) Division
In the area of construction, Smith Real Estate Services provides owner-focused or
agency construction management services. The term owner focused means that Smith
Real Estate Services operates as a contractual agent with fiduciary responsibility to
the owner. In 1999, the firm established Smith Construction Services as the CMS
division of SRES to address a growing need in the market for quality agency
construction management services to primarily public sector customers. This need
was affirmed and underscored through concerns repeatedly expressed by SRES
clients. These concerns included:

      Projects commonly surpassed approved budgets, and fell behind schedule
      Expectations for construction quality, and design services were not met
      Owners had limited participation
      Contracting inflexibility
      Contract Disputes
      Fair construction value was not being produced

The CMS Division mitigates these concerns through:
    Checks and balances to the decision-making process during the course of the
     project
    Positive continuity between the project design and the construction phases of
     the project
    Reduced opportunity for conflicts of interests to surface between project
     participants
    Enhanced level of owner awareness and optional owner participation in the
     project-delivery process




                                                                                     1

    Owner occupancy occurs on schedule
    Due Diligence reveals expected quality
    Fewer contractors claims against owner


Key Personnel
Our mission statement mandates superior client satisfaction through professional
oversight of projects entrusted to the firm. SRES achieves this goal by working
diligently, responsibly and proficiently, irrespective of the degree of difficulty and
size of the project.
