Meet the Team

Design Team of SMMA

Since 1955, SMMA has forged extraordinary relationships with clients, established an enviable record of success, and designed award-winning environments. From our two locations in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and Providence, Rhode Island, we are an employee-owned firm that remains true to our founders’ vision of approaching design as a deeply collaborative process.

The unique multidisciplinary nature of our practice serves as a strength. Our culture places design at the forefront through visual artistry and unlimited access to multidisciplinary design talent and leadership. We maximize our value through early involvement and a convergence of artistic and technical focus that speaks directly to the needs of our clients. As pioneers of an integrated design methodology, we strive to redefine the way our industry works.

Owner's Project Manager Hill International

Hill International provides program and project management, construction management, cost engineering and estimating, quality assurance, inspection, scheduling, risk management and claims avoidance to clients involved in major construction projects worldwide. Hill has participated in over 10,000 project assignments with a total construction value of more than $600 billion. Hill is ranked as the 8th largest construction management firm in the United States according to Engineering News-Record magazine.

Through our experience and expertise, Hill offers several advantages to our clients. Hill brings an in-depth view of the risks projects are likely to encounter. We quickly identify these risks and provide recommendations on how to protect your project. Hill also brings a regional focus, with a detailed understanding of the conditions, nuances, risks and opportunities likely to influence your project, but supported by our internationally recognized industry experts as needed. Hill’s independence offers another benefit to our clients: as the largest “for-fee-only” project management firm in the U.S., we do not provide design or contracting services. This means we support your projects with no potential conflicts of interest. The combination of these strengths means, from concept to completion, Hill adds value to your projects.
