Founded in 1954, the Shanghai Municipal Engineering Design Institute (Group) Co., Ltd. (for short: SMEDI - Shanghai Municipal Engineering Group) is engaged in planning, engineering design and consultation, EPC, and the whole process service of project management. The business scope of SMEDI covers various fields of the infrastructure construction industry, including the specialties of water supply, wastewater treatment, road, bridge, hydraulic engineering, rail traffic, maglev, underground space development, planning, architecture, environmental engineering, urban landscape, heat engineering, fuel gas, geotechnical engineering, surveying, inspection testing, construction management, EPC, and etc.. The comprehensive strength of the SMEDI has been among the top municipal engineering companies in China. In 2008, the SMEDI was entitled the state engineering design comprehensive qualification certificate Class A, and in 2010, has completed the reformation of corporation system and collectivization. In July 2012, SMEDI assets were injected into Shanghai Construction Group (SCG) and listed together.

There are approximately 5,200 staffs employed by the SMEDI, notably including 1 academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, 7 state-level design masters, 10 leading talents in Shanghai , 11 outstanding technical leaders in Shanghai ,40 experts enjoying the special allowance of the State Council of China, 21 stars in Shanghai ,150 professor-level senior engineers and large numbers of the gifted tiptop personnel of the professional leading persons and the subject initiators.
