David Jordan Smith



“It takes a good idea to begin a project. It takes a well-organized team to bring it to life.”


As the Director of Operations, David resolves the complex interdependencies within multidisciplinary teams for the successful planning, design, and construction of challenging projects. Responsible for diverse, award-winning projects, David’s superior organizational skills have enabled him to lead some of the largest and most difficult programs to successful completions by conscientiously documenting, managing, and controlling the scope, cost, and schedule of each project. An active Board Member of the Orange County Chapter of CSI and a Registered Architect in multiple states, David earned his Bachelor of Architecture and Bachelor of Environmental Engineering degrees from Auburn University.

David’s professional role models include Caesar Pelli for his design excellence and Arthur Gensler for his management excellence. From a broader point of view, however, David’s heroes consist of Elon Musk, his father, his two daughters and his wife, Kitty. When he isn’t working, David enjoys playing piano, strumming his guitar, and singing to entertain himself as well as his daughters and grandchildren. An avid golfer, David hopes to one day play at premier golf courses throughout the world.
