Our History

We’re proud that client relationships are at the foundation of our business. In fact, that is how our chief executive officer and founder established this firm back in 1978: Richard A. Smith has always believed in providing our clients with a trustworthy, ethical business partner. Rick began with a 10-person firm. Through a lot of perseverance and solidifying working relationships, the firm flourished. Today, with Rick’s son Richard. A Smith Jr. (Ricky) at the helm, we are raSmith, with a diverse portfolio of clients, where we work in nearly every state in the U.S.

Our People

raSmith’s approach to service and culture is defined by our people. We are client-driven and focused on finding the best solutions. Employees are empowered to be their creative best. Our engineers offer alternative solutions that add value and reduce costs. And we are moved by passion for our work, taking great pride in our projects and instilling confidence in clients. We’re always ready for new challenges, and we ensure our culture is motivating for all.
