Architects Smith Metzger
Rob Smith is a principal at the firm he helped found, Architects Smith Metzger, located at 2111 Grand Ave. in Des Moines.
In his 30 years as an architect, Rob has earned a reputation for taking care of his clients. He watches every detail and spends his firm's money wisely. It is the same attitude he brings to every project. He monitors budgets closely and works hard to save his clients money. "It's a matter of principle," Rob says.
Listening to the clients' visions, Rob quickly grasps the tasks at hand. He partners with each client to define the issues and determining what needs to be done to solve the problem. His guiding principle is "The sooner we define the problem, the sooner we can solve it."
