Our People


Hugh Smith


Hugh first started as a brickpaver/labourer in 1984 at the age of 19, working for a local landscaper, followed by a civil paving contractor.

In 1988 he commenced working for himself initially in partnerships with mates, then on his own in 1990. By this time he was already the preferred brick paving contractor in Perth for major builders such as John Hollands, Thiess, Transfield and others.

It’s his ability to work in well with all other trades,supervisors and project managers while providing a high standard of service to his clients, that has enabled him to build his company, Hugh & Co Contracting Pty Ltd, into one of Australia’s finest.
