Communications& Stakeholder Engagement
SMEC recognises that effective communication and stakeholder engagement in the planning and implementation stages of a project is essential, and that building strong relationships with stakeholders, including local communities, is critical to ensuring a successful project outcome.
At SMEC, we develop communication and stakeholder engagement strategies for projects of all sizes, and work with clients to identify key stakeholders to facilitate project implementation and delivery.
Working collaboratively with our multidisciplinary team of experts, we ensure community consultation and stakeholder engagement are effectively integrated throughout the project lifecycle.
Early engagement allows for constructive input during the planning and design stages, and for communities to share in the collective benefits of sustainable outcomes.
We have in-depth knowledge of political and bureaucratic government processes, and our expertise ensures that government objectives are achieved through the effective implementation of public policy initiatives.
We stay up-to-date with emerging trends and sensitive issues through effective and regular communication and engagement with stakeholders, and aim to mitigate and manage any stakeholder concerns before they become a public issue.
