Wallace & Smith Contractors was founded by H.R. Wallace and Earl O. Smith in 1950. Bart A. Wallace and George R. “Bob” Smith, the next generation, acquired the company in 1983 and continued the same construction services with many of the original employees. Paul Cooper joined the firm in 1989. The Company advanced its presence and abilities with every project, gaining recognition for full service quality construction, with an emphasis on partnerships and lasting relationships.
