SMEC Australia scopes, designs and delivers community and stakeholder consultation programs with the understanding that effective, flexible and targeted engagement is critical to achieve a social licence to operate, thereby minimising risk. A leader in digital innovation, SMEC offers clients the option of digital platforms that seamlessly collaborate with, inform and involve stakeholders, with feedback automatically collated within a project database. SMEC is adept at assessing the levels of engagement required (inform, consult, involve, collaborate or empower), identifying issues, risks and community sentiment. SMEC’s in house Social Scientists provide detailed social analysis to determine the social value and social risks associated with infrastructure projects. A key element of these analyses is the assessment of the social resilience and vulnerability of communities. Having delivered a multitude of infrastructure assessments for clients such as Building Queensland, SMEC’s Social Scientists provide a depth of experience in the definition and analysis of indicators which describe the relative vulnerability of populations to shocks, the enhanced resilience provided by infrastructure options and the social impacts associated with the failure of such infrastructure.
