mjs background

mjs design + build President, Michael Smeets, began working for his family’s remodeling business at an early age in Northern Illinois. It was there he developed his strong work ethic and comprehensive construction knowledge. He left Illinois and the construction business to obtain his Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, focusing on Mechanical Design. After working as an engineer for over a decade, his desire to meld his creative and technical talents became the impetus to launch mjs design + build. Smeets remains the primary client contact and is intimately involved with every project.
