SME and Hassett Engineering are amazing partners in realizing complex structural engineering design. They bring their vast amount of experience to the table in a very cooperative and friendly manner to calmly discuss construction concepts facilitating the early development of practical structural systems and connection details. This collaboration between structural designers and builders has great benefits for early on cost certainty by exploring alternatives to make the best decisions before the construction document phase. SME and Hassett Engineering help us avoid most of the costly interruptions, distractions, delays, re-design, out of phase design work and unrealized cost savings that afflict value engineering. Their skills, knowledge and experience will help you build anything that you could imagine and design as long as it is possible and reasonable to construct. - Bruce Danziger
I have worked with SME Steel Contractors on multiple large projects over the years and I look forward to doing so again in the future. The nature of projects that I have worked on with SME have been complex in nature with aggressive schedules and they have always risen to the occasion and performed. Their true strength is their ability to adapt and respond to not only what is going on in the field but also changes that are issued by the design team. Their field and office management are fair and solution driven professionals. It is part of their culture, from the top down, to find solutions to challenges rather than point fingers. Our relationship with SME has always started out strong at the beginning of our projects together and has only gotten stronger as the projects have completed. - William Deiter
