SMI History

SMI has over 25 years experience in removing and safely disposing of building contaminants, making the buildings we work on both safe and habitable. Located in Norwood, Massachusetts, SMI started life as a small suburban start up operation and continues to provide personal service today.

Darrell Maclean, President and Founder of SMI

Darrell Maclean, President, originally focused on removing asbestos from large buildings. As their expertise grew and their reputation became known as a company that performed excellent work, on time and on budget, SMI rapidly expanded their activities across a wider geography. It wasn’t long before they were asked to remove other contaminants, such as lead, mercury, refrigerants, and even guano.

With a broad range of capabilities relating to the safe removal of such contaminants and their safe disposal, SMI also became expert at solving mold problems in buildings, particularly after floods or roofing problems causing leaks. Southern Middlesex Industries has grown from strength to strength and is now one of the pre-eminent asbestos abatement companies in the New England area offering their services to both small and large establishments, from Watertown High School in Watertown, Cambridge Ringe and Latin School in Cambridge, MA, and complex Industrial projects to delicate occupied Hospital projects, SMI has the breadth and depth of expertise to help you restore your building to its former glory.
