History

Rooted in decades of excellence

In 1991, Dr. Gregory N. Richardson, P.E., founded G.N. Richardson & Associates, Inc. His mission was simple: To provide specialty engineering and geological consulting services, focusing on solid, hazardous, and industrial waste management. Over time, the firm grew to provide a complement of services in the siting, design, permitting, and construction of solid waste facilities across the United States.

Today, as Smith Gardner, Inc., managing partners Stacey A. Smith and John M. Gardner remain committed to delivering quality solutions in the field of solid waste management. As an employee-owned company based in Raleigh, North Carolina, Smith Gardner, Inc. is licensed to provide engineering and geological services across the eastern United States. We serve a variety of municipal, private, and industrial clients, and we provide technical assistance to the engineering community nationwide.

We believe that few firms offer the combination of diverse experience, commitment, and cost-effectiveness in the field of solid waste engineering as Smith Gardner, Inc. Contact us to learn how we can demonstrate our capabilities to your organization.
