Shane Smith had a new vision and direction for his business in late 2010. Shane opened another company called SMS Civil Constructions. SMS Civil Constructions is earning a great deal of respect from builders using our services in formwork, concrete and reinforcement.

SMS Civil Constructions has a highly qualified team of employees specialising in their given area. It is due to the team mentality along with a group of skilled tradesmen that SMS Civil Constructions is enjoying working throughout Australia.

SMS Civil Constructions is well on its way to becoming “first choice contractor” for civil construction projects which include large mining projects, substations and windmill farms. With the new direction of this company the team is even more motivated than ever to provide a high quality of workmanship along with being very up to date on safety and production capabilities.
