Mr. Smoley worked on several development concept planning studies for adaptive reuse of older and historic structures for inner city public market facilities in Asheville, NC, Columbus, OH, Cincinnatti, OH, Toledo, OH, and Atlanta, GA. Work on historic structures often entails incorporating the design guidelines of the U. S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service Preservation Briefs.
International work included market study and development proposals for projects in several Eastern European and former Soviet Union countries, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
Recent SE&C projects included engineering and consulting services for assessment of hurricane damage and preparation of remediation proposals for agricultural and agribusiness related facilities and infrastructure on the islands of St. Kitts, Nevis and Antigua of the lower Carribean basin, in cooperation with the U.S. State Departmentís Agency for International Development and the U.S. Department of Agricultureís Foreign Agricultural Service.
We can provide market study, master planning and design services for any of these types of market facilities using a systems view approach that identifies the market facility as an interactive component of a larger and broader market system, and culminates in a design that acknowledges its participatory role.
We can also develop alternative design concepts, site layouts and project cost pro-formas to optimize facilities operations with effective handling and distribution practices and technologies. Let us put this experience to work for you.
As Senior Program Advisor and Senior Civil Engineer for the USDA, Mr. Smoley developed engineering standards and provided master planning, facilities programming and design services for new wholesale produce markets, collection and shipping point markets, and farmersí markets facilities, nationwide and abroad, in conjunction with the Departmentís market feasibility studies.
Wholesale, collection and shipping point markets projects included studies in Chicago, IL, Los Angeles, CA, Jackson, MS, Atlanta, GA, Thomasville, GA, Jessup, MD, and Benton Harbor, MI.
Farmersí market projects included studies for Atlanta GA, Toledo OH, Covington KY, Columbia, MO, and Columbia, SC.
