J M Smith Engineering, LLC donates Civil Engineering Services to Habersham County Veterans Wall of Honor
J M Smith Engineering, LLC is proud to have made a contribution to the great effort of the Habersham County Veterans Wall of Honor by providing Civil Engineering services to the project for no charge. JMSE provided engineering plans, conceptual construction plans, construction observation, erosion control plans and worked with local and state agencies to obtain all the necessary permits to get the project off of the ground. To the firms good fortune, the Wal-Mart site adjacent to the veterans wall site had excess dirt that had to be removed from the site. JMSE was able to initially coordinate with the engineering firm that designed the Wal-Mart site to receive this additional dirt. JMSE also coordinated closely with the Habersham County Chamber of Commerce, the Habersham County Industrial Development Authority, Ethicon(donated the land for the Habersham Wall of Honor), and the Georgia Department of Transportation to ensure that the site works well with future plans for Historic 441 and the Chamber of Commerce Property. From these efforts JMSE was able to create a conceptual plan that was agreeable to all parties and worked well for both the site and Chamber of Commerce events.
“We are truly appreciative to all of the sacrifices that the veterans of our great nation have given to preserve and protect our freedom. We greatly appreciate the opportunity to be a part of this historic monument to the Habersham County Veterans. Please visit the Habersham County Veterans Wall of Honor website and make a contribution to show your support of our local heroes.” - Jason Smith, PE, J M Smith Engineering, LLC
