When you have a name like Precision Demolition, details matter. Which might be one of the reasons why Aaron Smith, owner and president of the Lewisville, Texas-based demolition company, puts so much emphasis on doing the little things right. Whether it’s taking extra time to “engineer out” potential complications on the front end of a project or investing in stringent continuing education programs to ensure safety compliance within its workforce, Smith says Precision Demolition’s exacting standards have allowed the company to flourish over the last 20 years.

“We approach each project as a team and specialize in projects where preplanning, high-level safety precautions and due diligence are paramount. No project is ever too big or too complex,” Smith says.

The company, which Smith founded in 1999 just a couple years out of college, has expanded to include approximately 480 employees and new offices in Houston and Austin. Smith says Precision Demolition is currently the largest privately owned demolition contractor in Texas and the seventh largest demolition contractor in the country.

Precision Demolition completes roughly 300 projects a year in Texas, that includes a range of services, such as implosion, wrecking, selective structural demolition, interior demolition, exterior demolition, saw cutting and coring.

Smith attributes the company’s expansion to its focus on the basics and a mentality that underscores the need for investing in what’s important rather than what’s convenient.

“We have implemented safety standards that exceed industry standards, developed continuing education programs for our labor force and invested in the most technologically advanced fleet of equipment the industry has to offer,” Smith says. “These commitments, along with the core principle of creating clients for life, have enabled Precision Demolition’s [growth]."
