DENMARK RIVERSIDE CLUB
This building was designed and sited to harmoniously reflect and respect the flowing nature of the river landscape and specific location which has immense cultural significance to the traditional owners of the land. This multipurpose, split level recreational facility built on the site of the previous Denmark Bowling Club is ideally suited to take full advantage of the elevated site overlooking the Denmark River. The facility provides a readily accessible, vibrant and stimulating social environment for both the local community and visitors alike. It was intended to be both highly flexible and functional to ensure a positive experience for the diverse user groups.

BUNBURY CATHOLIC COLLEGE LEARNING COMMONS
The Learning Commons multiuse classroom, library and sports equipment storage facility constructed as part of the Year 7 High School programme.
Smith Constructions were engaged as the building contractor to construct this two level facility which required a basement sports and storage area and first floor classrooms, library and reception area.
The building was constructed using loadbearing brickwork, suspended insitu concrete slab and fabricated steel roof frame. Finishes comprised of extensive patterned traditional colour brickwork, Colourbond longline walling, feature weatherboard and plywood paneling and acoustic ceilings.
Smith Constructions is pleased to announce the completion of the new Meadow Springs Primary School.
A majority of the buildings within the school were positioned to maximise natural light while optimising cooling summer breezes, with building positions and screening vegetation reducing the effect of hot easterly winds. Mature Tuart trees and other existing vegetation were retained where possible and provides an immediate connection to the natural environment.
In June we completed our latest large civil foundation works at Collie Power Station, one of the largest coal-fired power stations in Western Australia.
Our client, Kempe Group, required were for a high degree of project planning, OSH and Quality Control with weekly progress and project control reports.
The project involved demolition, piling, formwork (reinforcing, fixing, concrete placement), and holding down bolt placement and survey.
The construction required working around and identifying existing power station services, CFA piling, large concrete foundations, plant bases and plinths. Works also involved demolition of existing foundations in restricted working areas.
