As we sat down to enjoy a Thanksgiving lunch together today, we reflected on how grateful we are for all who are a part of the extended Smith Sinnett Architecture family: staff, clients, consultants, colleagues, friends. We couldn’t achieve our successes without the collaboration of our greater team and community.  We thank you!  We hope your Thanksgiving is rich with good cheer.


Groundbreaking – Burton Park

The Jacksonville-Onlsow Economic Development [JOED] held a groundbreaking ceremony on Monday for the Burton Park Industrial Building.

We’ve partnered with Pro Construction in a design/build effort to deliver this project. See the rendering and description below:

This 30,000 square foot, pre-engineered metal building, is located in a new industrial park and is designed to attract a large manufacturing tenant. The glass storefront, entry canopy, concrete block base, and alternating panel colors, provide scale and detail to an otherwise traditional and utilitarian shell. A strategy of readily available building materials, as well as minimal site and interior work, balances maximum occupant-flexibility with an accelerated schedule and low construction costs.
