“Our selection is not based on price alone, also  the safety & saving aspects”

Our selection is not based on price alone, we also took into consideration the safety & saving aspects. The Smart Sustainable Foundations allow quick replacement of posts with no further effort required to the base, (providing a significant cost benefit in replacing the damaged sign post by re-using the existing footing ) and reduces risk of injury to employees by reducing time spent on traffic islands exposed to traffic.”

SMALL SIGNAGE:  Smart Sustainable Foundations are used by State and Local Government Authorities to secure small signage

MEDIUM SIZED SIGNAGE  Smart Sustainable Foundations are used by State and Local Government Authorities to secure medium sized signage


GRAB-RAILS  Smart Sustainable Foundations are used by State and Local Government Authorities to secure grab-rails


SMART TRAFFIC BOLLARDS are used by State Government Authorities to reduce the cost of installing and maintaining traffic bollards (vulnerable to vehicle impact). Still looking good more than a decade after the first one was installed.


SMART IMPACT RECOVERY BOLLARDS  are used by State Government Authorities to reduce the cost of installing and maintaining bollards and Low Impact Bollards to reduce risk of injury to bike riders on bike paths. All major cities in WA (City of Fremantle, City of Perth, City of Stirling, City of Bunbury, City of Melville and City of Wanneroo) use Smart Impact Recovery Bollards to reduce damage and improve the ability to maintain bollards in busy high streets. Synergy has recently started upgrading their bollards to make them more sustainable.

STREET FURNITURE  Smart Sustainable Foundations are are used by State Government Authorities and private sector to install anything from cafe tables to statues, bins, barriers, bike racks and seating.

MRWA / Downer Mouchel Perth Metro has used  Smart sustainable foundations and Smart bollards on the new Gateway WA , Perth Airport and Freight Access Project (WA’s largest ever, $1 billion road development creating an iconic gateway to WA)

Supply of sustainable infrastructure to reduce downstream maintenance and improve sustainability of the Southern Gateway. Sign-posts, bollards and barriers were installed using the Smart Sustainable foundations and continue working efficiently today.

Recent upgrades included the introduction of spring return posts to reduce damage to Keep left signs that were being impacted on a regular basis

MRWA are working to heal our city, one foundation at a time, with the aim of improving safety and improving effectiveness of their maintenance services.

MRWA Maintenance sector are healing our roads one foundation at a time; Reducing the risk of injury to their staff; Reducing disturbance to public and disturbance to underground services; Reducing the on-going consumption of carbon intensive supplies to zero (with the aim of reaching their 2020 target of zero waste ), substantially reducing turn around times and saving taxpayers millions every year

Main Roads had a problem with solid steel (often concrete filled) bike path bollards that were causing injury to bike riders when impacted – so we provided a safe and sustainable solution. Smart Low Impact Bike Path bollards reduce risk of injury as they are made from soft durable polyethylene compound and deflect upon low impact (and self-recover), are removable and relocatable.


At the forefront of change are some of Australia’s leading mining companies, seeking to reduce their carbon footprint, Rio Tinto, Hamersley Iron and Pilbara Iron mining companies have installed thousands of Smart re-usable foundations that are protected from damage by the Smart self-healing ground socket and can be removed and relocated when the site closes, leaving behind no waste or landfill.


Bollards protecting drive-through take-away premises are highly vulnerable to damage and cost the managers a great deal to maintain.

Smart KFC operators around Perth Metro and Mandurah region have installed Smart sustainable foundations to drastically reduce the on-going cost of maintenance and protect the expensive footings from damage when impacted by vehicles.



City of Wanneroo used the Impact Recovery System to secure their bollards in parks to enable access for maintenance. These bollards look like solid in-ground bollards but are easily removable for allowing access to the parks and easily replaceable for maintenance.

If impacted at low speed the bollard self-recovers. If impacted at high speed the bollard prevents access to the park and is removable and re-usable time & time again.

Transfield maintenance are responsible for maintaining the grounds at WA’s leading award winning tourist destination Hillary’s Marina. Transfield has applied Smart technology throughout the marina to reduce maintenance costs and improve efficiency of their infrastructure. The Marina is extremely well maintained with all infrastructure secured using Smart foundations


City of Perth approached Smart Urban for a simple solution to the growing cost of maintaining bollards in the city centre. They had tried bollards on spring bases but they became weak over time and posed a serious litigation risk (especially outside the pubs!)

We developed the Smart Impact Recovery System and now, although they look like solid in-ground bollards) the majority of the bollards in the city are Smart Impact Recovery Bollards.


Gemtek Automation sought out Smart Impact Recovery Bollards to improve the stability of their  client’s bollards and protect valuable electronics. They have done work for Synergy, Lendlease and many other high profile clients.

City of Fremantle were finding it incredibly difficult to maintain bollards in the busy High Street. Using Smart Bollards and signage they have substantially reduced the workload and can now replace damaged items in the busy streets without disturbing the public. Maintaining the busy High Street is just so much easier thanks to Smart Urban” Devon Cunningham


Use Sustainable Foundations to secure their signage, grab-rails and bollards and it shows. A visit to Stirling demonstrates what a difference Sustainable Foundations can make- well done guys every day I see Stirling becoming cleaner and safer!


Tomen Corporation (Toyota Subsidiary) has taken the Smart Taper to Japan and has established trials with the Nigarta Police Department with the aim of representing Smart Urban in Japan.


Established distributors in Germany, Holland, France and Belgium. German company Signalization BV now offer the new Smart-ground sleeve and thus promote sustainable development in the road equipment.

Smart developments cost substantially less to maintain, but as you can see, the difference is not only financial


Whilst traditional developments remain in a state of constant decline,  Smart developments grow increasingly efficient as the money usually spent on maintenance can be spent on further improvements.
