The coffee table book documents how AE Smith has helped shape the Townsville skyline and been part of the local community since 1987.

Since then, AE Smith has grown into one of the largest engineering services companies in Regional Queensland employing more than 135 people, 70 of those in Townsville alone.

Landmark examples of AE Smith Townsville projects include the Townsville Hospital, Jupiters Townsville, RAAF Base Townsville, Lavarack Barracks and various government offices.

The Townsville AE Smith team is led by Mark Lovelady, General Manager AE Smith Regional Queensland. Mark notes that AE Smith is a strong supporter of local schools and charities, often loaning the AE Smith mobile cool room free of charge. “Chances are Townsville locals have seen our cool room at many community events when they’re buying a sausage in bread.”

Mark finishes the profile piece with what’s most important to him as a long-term employee of AE Smith. “What I’m most proud of is AE Smith’s evolution over the last 28 years into a large regional business, employing locals and working for locals.”
