Our Core Values


Strategic demonstrates our commitment to build relationships and enable our clients to realize their mission through our planning, collaboration and diligence.

Responsive defines our angle of approach, our ability to readily support our clients’ mission through an attitude of service regardless of location and scope.

Trust demands our commitment to our clients, forged over time through the demonstration of our meticulous planning, processes and procedures.

Reliance Construct ™

S&M has always focused on our personnel, planning and procedures and viewed these as a reflection of our Core Values. Our personnel are highly motivated professionals with multiple years of experience in their field. Planning is evident in our commitment to pre-construction diligence and our strategic view of projects and relationships. We have organized S&M’s Procedures in our Employee, Superintendent, Safety and Subcontractor Manuals, Project Planning Outline (PPO) and multiple Project Checklists. Every S&M employee our partnering firms and subcontractors are committed to and accountable for this rigorous framework. We call the synthesis of these ideas our Reliance Construct™.
