With an unyielding reputation for quality, integrity, and value, at Smart Technology Solutions we work in a manner consistent with our company purpose and guiding principles. Regardless of delivery method or market, STS’s approach to construction services remains consistent: meet expectations of quality and safety, establish clear lines of communication, stay on schedule, and control costs.
Our industry-leading processes and project management approach has allowed us to earn recognition among the highest regarded commercial general contractors in the industry.
Relying on the experience and knowledge attained from over two decades of construction services and general contracting service, we understand the diversified delivery methods and needs of every client. Such methods range from hard bid where STS is not involved during the design phase, to an integrated Design-Build approach where STS plays an active role beginning early in the design process.
Regardless of the approach, each project receives an unsurpassed commitment to quality from inception to completion due to our unique, proprietary Project Control System. Each employee is indoctrinated in the system whereby checks and balances are implemented to ensure flawless execution and delivery of construction services. Preconstruction managers proactively suggest practical and cost-saving alternatives to both the owner and architect. This knowledge and ability, coupled with computer analysis systems, allows for such adjustments early in the design process – avoiding significant alteration of design documents and potential costly delays in schedule.

STS is the most professional contractor we’ve dealt with, with great attention to details and thoughtfulness. We couldn’t be happier with results – work was also done on time and within budget. We couldn’t have asked for anything more; we’ll be using them again on future projects.
Great service!! Always easy to talk to the boss about concerns and opinions on jobs. Really respectful employees. Jobs are well done with great efficiency.
I am a stationary engineer in the Chicago area and I have been using STS as our contractors for the past 10 years. I have had nothing but positive experiences with this company. The workers are efficient, professional, ¬prompt and courteous. I would recommend them very highly for any and all construction projects.
We have been using STS for our senior home care facilities for all plumbing, electrical high and low voltage work including nurse call systems. The technicians are very knowledgeable and experienced. As a senior home care facility, we need fast and reliable work; STS contractors work great for us.
