COVID-19 Notice:

As we navigate through the new, unprecedented waters of the COVID-19 pandemic, please know that we take this seriously.  SMS is committed to the well-being of our clients, employees, their families and the general population.

On March 30, 2020, Governor Pritzker announced an extension to the shelter-in-home order through the end of April to help combat the COVID-19 pandemic. Our office at 215 Market Street will continue to be closed through April 30, 2020. However, all SMS team members are working remotely in order to maintain a continuity of business.

If you need to get a message to anyone at our office, you can go to our website, under the “Company” tab and then select “People”.  This lists most of our employees and their e-mail link.  If you don’t know specifically who you need to contact, you may send an email to Susan Weaver at sweaver@smsengineers.com and she will forward your email to the appropriate person.

We appreciate your understanding during these unusual times.  We will continue to monitor the situation, and we will update our website if any changes to the above notice occur.

Thank you!
