Smith & Long is your best choice for a wide variety of Electrical Service offerings, not the least of which is the advantage of and convenience of a single source. The ability to “single source” from one trusted, quality, a service-minded contractor will save you time, money and much frustration.

Every day Smith & Long is actively involved in providing a wide variety of electrical and communication-related services and solutions for the commercial and institutional construction marketplace for new buildings, expansions, and existing facilities. Many of these projects are performed not just as “one-offs” but as quality builds for repeat customers, having fostered long-term positive working relationships.

One can appreciate that an electrical contractor that has been established since 1930 should have developed a very expansive portfolio of construction projectsand you are absolutely correct. However, “Construction” has not traditionally been what Smith & Long has been known for over the past couple of decades. Instead, Smith & Long has all too often been thought of as premier technical services and base building support organization. But that has all changed! A totally revitalized Smith & Long Construction Services Group has been carefully developed under strong leadership with the renewed mandate of providing quality construction services for quality clients. And to be clear, this mandate is not to replace the reputation and focus of our technical services and base building support service offerings, but greatly complements it!

Education is a vital piece to an effective construction team and so we ensure that all personnel regardless of whether they are a field, supervisory, estimating or management, are kept up to date with the latest Health & Safety Regulations, construction best practices, tools and equipment, new cutting-edge materials and associated Lean Construction methodologies. As an unionized IBEW electrical contractor, we take great pride in developing our construction project teams and applaud The IBEW Code of Excellence as one that elevates professionalism and respect for all parties. Smith & Long recognizes that appropriate and timely communication strategies that focus on clearly identified project scope, tasks, schedule, manpower, material procurement, etc., are fundamental to every successful project. This approach applies from within our own organization and outward to the various stakeholders which in turn truly helps to energize an efficient cohesive effort to execute all projects with excellence, every time.
