26th October

With the consideration of biodiversity well-being at the forefront of numerous up and coming urban developments, it is important to both reflect on previous instances where biodiversity has been improved by development, and to educate future generations on its importance and impact.

Landscape Architecture Manager and Senior Urban Designer at Taylors, Amy Davidson, recently had the opportunity to address 120 students studying first year Planning or second year Environments and Society at RMIT University’s Melbourne campus on the topic of integrating biodiversity into projects. “The majority of the students I spoke to will go into government roles at some stage throughout their careers…I wanted the students to understand that all individuals can make a difference and that biodiversity is more resilient than we think.” Ms Davidson remarked. The lecture provided Taylors with the opportunity to present the company to a new …

Posted by Kathryn Kutchel in Events, News, Our people. Comments Off on Focus On: 3D and BIM Technologies with Alastair MacColl

17th October

Following on from Taylors latest tradeshow attendance at the Melbourne AIS Equinox, we took a moment to sit down with licensed surveyor and 3D Modelling and BIM Manager, Alastair MacColl, to understand the innovative technology that is currently being presented to the architectural sector by the geospatial industry, and how attending this event has increased Taylors exposure to their architectural customers.

What do you think is the key message that you want the audience here to take away from this event?
Our focus at this event was on technology so we really want the attendees to know that the technology is available to them, it’s accessible and its pretty affordable.

This presentation was a little bit different to some of those you’ve done in the past, how do you feel that the audience responded to this presentation?
It’s a little different to presentations we’ve …

M-City is set to be Melbourne’s largest mixed-use development outside of the CBD. Located in Clayton the 35,000m² community will include 600 + apartments, a hotel, office complex, and an extensive shopping and dining precinct. Here’s how it’s progressing so far.

Located just 30 minutes from Melbourne’s CBD, the Monash region is experiencing strong capital growth. It is consistently outperforming metropolitan Melbourne in real estate market growth, demonstrated by a 19 percent median house price growth in 12 months.

These conditions make it the perfect location for the new M-City development, a major mixed-use complex that is set to be released to tender shortly.

Taylors was awarded the survey and subdivision services for the development, but has actually been involved with the project for the last ten years. Taylors’ General Manager – Urban Development Survey, Leo Bateman, said “We’ve completed boundary marking and …

13th October

One of Melbourne’s most innovative events in the architectural space was held at the Royal Exhibition Building just last week. The AIS Equinox Exhibition is designed to ‘connect architects, interior designers and design specifiers with product suppliers’ in a relaxed environment different to those of regular industry tradeshows. Taylors was graciously invited to attend the event to educate enthusiasts and industry professionals alike on how emerging 3D technologies can benefit and reshape future architectural surveying practices.

“There was a great deal of interest in the technology and expertise we had on display and it was exciting to be able to show that to the Architectural market.” Eight keen Taylors representatives were present at the Taylors booth, which showcased an array of virtual reality glasses for crowds to experiment with as they pleased, as well as Taylors TIMMS machine – a breakthrough …
