With a rich 70-year history of successfully delivering nation-building infrastructure projects, SMEC is committed to having a meaningful impact on people, the environment, and the clients and communities the consultancy serves. In 2016, SMEC joined the Surbana Jurong Group, a global organisation headquartered in Singapore.

SMEC aligns specialist expertise to deliver effective, practical, and sustainable outcomes from initial concept and feasibility to planning, design, construction, commissioning, and operation and maintenance. The consultancy is internationally recognised for expertise in the field of hydropower and dams, with the original Snowy Mountain Hydroelectric Scheme serving as the foundation of the organisation. Since then, the firm has expanded its portfolio to include a wide range of hydropower and dam projects, sharing their technical skills worldwide.
Being a passionate advocate for environmentally responsible hydropower solutions, SMEC actively engages with stakeholders and conducts thorough ecological assessments to ensure the well-being of communities. As members of the International Commission on Large Dams (ICOLD), the Australian National Committee on Large Dams (ANCOLD), and the International Hydropower Association, the consultancy is committed to safeguarding the environment and surrounding communities.
