With 25 years of building and project management experience under his carpenter’s belt, Steve Smith set out in 2004 to start a new type of residential contracting firm. The Victoria-based SC Smith Building, comprised of a skilled team of tradesmen, specializes in creating distinctive new homes and carrying out timeless renovations. “At the heart of the company is the desire to shape homes to stand the true test of time. We work closely with our clients to help them realize the full potential of their building ideas and projects, truly transforming dreams into reality.” The team at SC Smith Building prides itself on implementing practical and modern building techniques while, at the same time, never losing sight of what previous generations of tradesmen brought to the table. “The craft of building homes has certainly changed in the last few decades. And while all of us here at SC Smith Building prides ourselves on staying up-to-date with modern techniques, we always employ that unique, old world type of attention to detail – something I feel many contracting companies out there have forgotten and devalued. With us, quality is key.” Today, SC Smith Building works on a variety of projects within the southern Vancouver Island region. And, as a BuiltGreen-certified builder, the team at SC Smith Building takes care to be environmentally responsible when creating homes – this can include being mindful of water conservation, managing waste and using Earth-friendly materials. One such BuiltGreen project of SC Smith Building is Woodland Creek, a planned community development located in Sooke, BC. Passion for building is evident in every project carried out by SC Smith Building, proven by the strong dedication to the craft and the endurance of its client relationships. With SC Smith Building, every home is special, every step of the way – for today, tomorrow and far into the future.
Built Green™ promotes construction of buildings that are healthier for the occupants and healthier for the environment. Sustainable or “green” building practices can reduce the tremendous impact that building has on both people and nature.
Better energy efficiency means comfort and long term savings for the homeowner. Healthier indoor air means comfort, better health and peace of mind for the family. Durable, reduced-maintenance materials mean a longer life for the home and long term savings. Preserving natural resources means leaving more for future generations to enjoy.
