Top Honour for Top End Project

AE Smith Recognised for Engineering Excellence on World Class Convention Centre

26 Sep 2008
AE Smith has added another prestigious industry accolade to its collection for their work on the newly completed $115 million Darwin Convention Centre.

The 2008 Engineering Excellence Award was presented to AE Smith at the Engineers Australia Northern Division’s annual Engineering Awards this month.

The coveted top honour was shared with a team of engineering companies appointed as the Convention Centre’s fire engineers.

“We’re very proud to have been recognised at this level for such a high profile project,” comments Mark Jacobson, AE Smith’s Engineering Manager for Queensland.

The rigorous judging process for the Excellence Awards includes reviewing how projects exceed client expectations, their community benefit as well as environmental sustainability.

AE Smith and partner companies Connell Wagner and Sitzler Laing O’Rourke Joint Venture are automatically entered into the Australian Engineering Excellence Awards, to be announced at a ceremony at Parliament House in November.
