Why Shmina


We believe that greatness always begins with passion. And passion is the driving force that has fueled our success over the past 100 years. We love what we do and it shows in the things we build—beautiful, state-of-the-art structures that consistently impress our most important critics: our clients.


The people who work for A. Z. Shmina have great enthusiasm for their profession. It’s safe to say passion is a pre-requisite for employment. In return, we encourage employees at every level to build upon their key areas of interest, and we provide opportunities for advancement along the way. The result is a well-rounded, highly skilled team of industry professionals that views our next construction project as our most important—ever.


A. Z. Shmina has learned a lot during our 100 years on the job. We’ve celebrated the highs, and persevered through the lows. Along the way we’ve gained something only a firm with our longevity can acquire—100 years of perspective. This means that if we encounter a challenge at any point during a build, it’s highly likely we’ll solve it with speed, skill and efficiency. We take great pride in our ability to problem solve. It’s part of our rich history, and it sets us apart.
