A St. Louis-based commercial construction management firm, S.M. Wilson & Company, has opened an operations office at 145 S. Mount Auburn Road in Cape Girardeau.

Founded in 1921 and celebrating its centennial anniversary this year, S.M. Wilson specializes in large commercial, educational, health care, senior living, industrial and retail projects. It was the general contractor and services manager for Century Casino Cape Girardeau when it was built nearly a decade ago.

Nick Martin, a Southeast Missouri native with an extensive construction background, serves as senior project development manager at the Cape Girardeau branch office.

S.M. Wilson's office location on Mount Auburn Road was formerly occupied by VNA (Visiting Nurse Association) of Southeast Missouri, which relocated to 2311 Bloomfield St., Suite 103, in Cape Girardeau at the end of July.

Tom Kelsey with Lorimont Commercial Real Estate represented the Mount Auburn Road building ownership in the lease arrangement with S.M. Wilson, which was represented by Jacob Fish with Realty Executives Edge.
