Smithson is a commercial, design-build general contractor and works with a wide variety of industrial, commercial, and retail clients. Established in 1979, the company originally operated primarily in the southeastern United States. Today, with offices in Rocky Mount, NC (50 miles east of Raleigh) and Wilmington, NC, Smithson has completed projects across the United States, as well as projects as distant as China and the Carribean Islands.

Much of the company’s success has been built on the “Design-Build” model. With over 75% repeat business, our clients know and appreciate the benefits of working with architects, engineers, and a general contractor rolled into one company – Smithson, Inc. –  with a single project manager from start to finish!
