“I have worked with the Paul Smith Earthmoving (PSE) team as part of the road construction and maintenance subcontract arrangement they have with Downer, on our state highway maintenance contract. Working on the state highway network is a challenging environment and we need contractors who can perform and capably manage these pressures. Our working relationship is professional, collaborative and it is pleasing that PSE takes pride in delivering a quality job to meet our high, long-term performance expectations.”
