Reflecting on the journey of our organisation over the past year fills me with immense pride and gratitude. Together, we have embraced transformation, emerging stronger and more resilient and with a greater opportunity for growth and positive impact than we have seen before.


Throughout 2023, our business, as a part of the Surbana Jurong Group and alongside our ten sister companies, underwent significant restructuring, consolidating our strengths and resources. Forming a cohesive and powerful unit with a core focus on Infrastructure and Energy, this transformation allows us to harness the collective expertise and capabilities of our global reach, technical excellence, and diverse teams, enabling us to deliver exceptional results for our clients and communities worldwide.

At the heart of our success lies our unwavering commitment to investing in our people. Our peoples’ dedication, skill and talent, passion, and resilience have been the driving force behind our achievements, and I extend my deepest gratitude to our teams for their tireless efforts and dedication to excellence.

We take pride in our SMEC brand, now with a seventy-five year history, and embrace our organisational purpose of “Real Impact, Made Together”. Our purpose expresses our shared commitment across the Surbana Jurong Group to create meaningful, tangible, and enduring change, which we will only achieve through genuinely collaborative efforts with clients, partners, and communities. We look toward the future with great anticipation and optimism. The opportunities for growth are vast, and we are well-positioned to seize them. By embracing sustainability and technology as our guiding principles, we are poised to lead our industry into a new era of innovation and progress.

Looking ahead, we remain steadfast in our commitment to fostering a workplace culture where every individual feels a sense of belonging and empowered to reach their fullest potential. Together, we will continue to uphold the values and legacy that define us, while charting a course towards a brighter and more prosperous future.

I am truly excited about the journey that lies ahead, and I am confident that, together, we will achieve even greater heights of success and excellence.
