SMA provides mechanical & electrical engineering services for commercial, industrial, institutional and public clients to the architectural community, design/build contractors and directly to building owners.
Who is Smith Miller Full Service Engineering Firm Established in 2006 Office Located in Kingston, PA Experienced Personnel, Average of 20 + Years Partner/ Project Manager Dual Role Focus on Quality, Service, and Responsiveness Process Driven - Project Methodology Creative Solutions- Thinking outside the box Maintain Project Schedules Develop & Maintain Project Budget
Our Philosophy We believe that appropriate designs are developed individually, with senior engineers interacting directly with clients. There is no canned solution 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.
Our Project Management All projects undertaken by SMA are managed and designed by principals and senior engineers. Each client can be assured that every project will receive the benefits of the experience of senior level. We are designers, not administrators. As a matter of policy, we are a size-controlled firm. We purposely limit the number of active projects which we will undertake at any one time in order to guarantee our clients the complete and personal service they expect and deserve.

All utilities electric, gas/oil, water, sewage/waste disposal and steamcan be part of the services.
Our MARKETS: COMMERCIAL The nature of the design of today's commercial and office facilities requires detailed knowledge of indoor air quality, temperature, power quality, and complex modern communication systems. In addition, many clients want practicality and aesthetics in lighting and acoustics. Flexibility in the design of modular grids coordinated with architectural, structural and functional elements, is a service benefit to our clients and the architects we work with.. Education/Training Space. Corporate Offices. Cafeterias. Auditoriums. Food Service Kitchens. Parking Structures. Raised Floor Offices. Libraries. Department Stores. Professional Offices. Warehouses
Municipalities Stage Governments Airports Federal Agencies Our MARKETS: GOVERNMENT County Job Corps GSA PA DGS Our design work for governmental departments and agencies includes highly differentiated projects from convention centers to prisons; from city parks to mail handling facilities. The common element among these diverse facilities is their budget-driven nature and the critical need to meet those budgets. Taxes often must be raised to pay for government projects, particularly on the local level, and we understand the dynamics involved in publicly funded projects. We work with government at the local, state and federal levels and can perform effectively within the often rigid constraints of government contra often rigid constraints of government contracting.
