The idea that carbon resources are disposable is so ingrained in our culture that few people question it. We dared to be different, developing a range of products that lay the foundations for a circular economy without waste or on-going consumption of vital carbon resources
How we are different
Have you ever wondered why road-side items and bollards aren’t impact resistant? We think it is because most businesses are focused on lining their pockets, so they sell you products that are designed to fail. This is where we differ. Our products are designed to continue working year after year, lining your pocket instead of ours. Why do we do this? Because we are working to reduce the on-going consumption of carbon supplies and help you to build a better future, without waste
Our journey started with an inquiry from Main Roads for a more sustainable means of securing road-side infrastructure, reducing time on location and the risk of workplace injury.
City of Perth required a solution to the growing damage to bollards in the city centres; Rio Tinto then requested re-usable and sustainable concrete foundations that could be relocated, making the mine-site infrastructure removable and re-usable, leaving behind no waste when a mine-site is closed; and Queensland Main Roads requested a sustainable Foundation for traffic light columns.
Smart Urban delivered above and beyond the client’s expectations on every project working closely with industry, listening to their problems and providing low cost, sustainable solutions.
Smart Urban was awarded Innovator of the Year for the Smart Sustainable Foundations. Nationally Approved and accredited by Department of Occupational Health and Safety this technology is patented and trademarked.
Not only do our products reduce damage and waste, they make roadside infrastructure re-usable following bad impact and 100% recylable. All of our products are manufactured locally using locally sourced materials.
We are now working to increase the use of recycled materials in our manufacturing process. We manufacture the Smart Sustainable Foundations from 100% recycled petroleum waste and are looking to manufacture the Smart Urban Impact Recovery Rings from recycled tyres. We are also working now on developing a range of bollards using recycled plastic bags.
