As the lead principal for EBL Designs & Project Management, we specialize in small to medium sized residential Architectural projects.  From conceptual, to schematic, to technical documentation, we take pride in offering our clients a sample of the Bermuda Vernacular that they will cherish.

With that said, often times in the past we at EBL Designs found it hard to liaise with Contractors that were both knowledgeable and client friendly.  Such was the case that, once approval was granted we encouraged clients to seek contractors ‘they’ were comfortable with so the EBL could refrain from recommending any one construction company who could possibly be disastrous.

This was our practice until we were introduced to the services of Ross Smith Construction & Facilities Management.  Upon introduction, Mr. Ross Smith Jr. was receptive as well as communicative with regard to informing a very timid client as to what to expect during his contract term.  Needless to say I was very impressed.  Notwithstanding, Ross Smith Jr. is partnered with his father, Ross Smith Sr. who is a legend in the fraternity of formal Bermuda Construction.  He brings with him over 40 years in the construction industry and can manipulate any infrastructure scenario to fit the client’s need.  Moreover, with Ross Jr.’s experience in Facilities Management, the need for a Project Manager, Construction Manager, or even a Site Foreman is mitigated; which equates to additional cost savings to the client.

On a recent project that EBL had partnered with Mr. Smith, we had been confronted with a possible cost exhaustive situation that involved the excavation of BELCo services.  Ross Smith Jr., with his expertise in electrical (20 years) was able to recommend cost saving exercises that not only saved the client but was more aesthetically pleasing in the end.  This foresight, together with his approachable demeanor has Ross Smith Construction & Facilities Management as one of the first construction companies that EBL Designs recommends.
