Richard Craig Smith, earned his Masters degree in Architecture from Tulane University in 1976. His knowledge and love of good design is quite apparent in his home building. Through his past affiliation with a New Orleans design-build firm, and currently, as the principal of both Omni Builders, Inc., and its design arm, New Design Studios, Rick has built numerous custom-designed homes of various architectural styles throughout the Greater New Orleans area, both on urban infill lots, as well as in planned communities. He was one of the early featured builders in English Turn, a prestigious master-planned community on New Orleans’ West Bank, as president of SPENCERSMITH.
Rick’s extensive architectural training, experience and “eye” gives Omni Builders the unique ability to execute any plan, whether generated through New Design Studios or a client’s choice of architect, with the requisite sensitivity and flexibility to assure each client’s satisfaction.
A benefit to a career as a home builder is being able to look back and remember the many families you served and know what was accomplished.
