James I. Smith

A civil engineer and a civil man, James I. Smith specializes in site layout, grading, and drainage design and has managed all aspects of a project from client meetings and design to permitting and completion. Somehow, he accomplishes this without screaming or excessive sarcasm. When a client needs accurate illustrations and easy-to-read reports, James delivers.

He lives in the Hardin Valley area of Knoxville and is truly blessed to be the father of three adorable daughters and one charming son. James spends much of his “free time” chauffeuring his kiddos to school, softball practice, birthday parties, and so on. The rest of his time is spent hiking, camping, reading, DIY projects, fixing things, and long stints of front-porch-sittin’.
