As one of the most highly regarded and the largest privately owned building and mechanical services contractor in Australia, AE Smith was the obvious choice to take on the Mater Mother’s Hospital redevelopment.

The Mater redevelopment project involves the construction of the new Mother’s hospital, and a major refurbishment and extension of the Mater Adult Hospital. AE Smith designed and installed the hydraulics and mechanical systems for use throughout the hospital. This included the piping for transportation of all fluids and gases around the complex.

Innovation and superior customer service has been central to AE Smith’s tremendous success. Their commitment to providing sustainable and efficient designs has further strengthened their place as one of Australia’s leading mechanical services contractors. As part of the Mater redevelopment, AE Smith created a roof-water harvesting system and water reuse system for sanitary flushing in the hospital. Their continued efforts to create more efficient designs, has even started inspiring other companies to take action to reduce their carbon output.

AE Smith has been providing quality services to Australia and New Zealand for over 100 years and has been recognised by their customers as “the apex of the mechanical service provider triangle.”

AE Smith prides itself on creating close working relationships with clients, and Australian and international partners. The organisation’s expert team is second to none in every project regardless of size or complexity. Their attention to detail and personal service has set AE Smith apart from their competitors. And their work has not gone unnoticed.

The plethora of landmark projects completed by AE Smith is testament to the superior quality of services that this company has to offer.
