Striving to deliver service excellence across a range of industry sectors, SMEC has developed and refined a core service offering the lifecycle of a project.

The company dates back to the iconic Snowy Mountains Hydroelectric Scheme, one of the largest and most complex hydroelectric schemes in the world. The scheme was a multi-purpose project initiated between 1949 and 1974. The project brought together over 100,000 workers from 30 countries who built 16 major dams, seven power stations, one pumping station, 145 km of tunnels, 80 km of aqueducts and 2,000 km of roads.
Through the Scheme, SMEC has since then raised its bar high through project management, design and construction supervision on the Lotsane Dam project; a solid waste management contract at Jwaneng Diamond mine, the world's richest diamond mine; and the preparation of a National Water Master Plan and Energy Efficiency Audit for the Water Utilities Corporation treatment plants, pumping stations and offices.
