Building a Sustainable Future

Founded in 2010 by Leslie ‘Shawn’ Smith, LS Smith, Inc has since grown into one of the most dynamic construction and development companies servicing Eastern North Carolina. From small-scale remodeling and repair projects to large-scale community design and revitalization, our team is committed to providing quality work, fair pricing, and prompt service.

Based in Wilmington, NC, it comes as no surprise our “Port City” team is also excited and passionate about shipping container architecture and the many applications available with this unique building block. Our biggest and most innovative endeavor to date – The Cargo District – will provide our community with multifamily container homes, coworking spaces, a coffee shop, and food truck park featuring creative modular building techniques.

In addition to our latest development project, we further provide the greater Wilmington area with expert HVAC, plumbing, and electrical services. At LS Smith, Inc, all of our services are sourced in-house, ensuring every job we do is done efficiently and at the best price possible. We believe in the work we do and would love to work with you.
