Taylors representatives, Richard Cirillo and Leo Bateman, recently attended the National Surveying Congress for 2018 in Sydney to be a part of the National Surveying Consultancy Awards.
The awards were established by Consulting Surveyors National as a means of annually recognizing the ‘peak surveying consultancies in Australia’ and are divided into two categories – Small Consultancy (15 employees or less) and Large Consultancy (greater than 15 employees). The awards go to firms that can demonstrate a culture of excellence around business operations, community engagement, professional development and surveying excellence, which ultimately results in the highest level of service delivery.

Taylors are the proud Town Planning and Survey Consultants for the new Lifestyle Hastings development which was recently named the most affordable development of the year at the 2017 National UDIA Awards for Excellence.
The Lifestyle development located in Hastings on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula was awarded the UDIA’s National Affordable Development Award over six other developments from around Australia.
The development by Lifestyle Communities is a secure community aimed at over 55 year olds that has been designed and developed in a way that makes the construction costs cheaper than regular houses, without losing any of the quality and amenities. These turn-key homes are now priced at around 80 percent of the median house price in the catchment.

The Taylors NBN journey started back in July 2010. The NBN project was in its infancy. A trial rollout had begun in Tasmania and the project was gaining some media coverage, however the coverage was largely political and few in the mainstream business community had started to turn their heads in the NBN direction. In fact, in the wake of the GFC many businesses were still picking themselves up and dusting themselves off, particularly businesses heavily exposed to the development industry, which of course includes most surveying firms. Though inexperienced in the space, strategically we were well positioned given that two years earlier we had established an infrastructure team to target projects such as this.
When we began our investigations in to the NBN we knew we had a long road ahead of us. The majority of our previous work had …
Congratulations – Training is over – where’s my beer!
We share the news that the circle of friendship and learning between Taylors and the Department of Land Records and Survey in Dhaka Bangladesh has been further strengthened by the successful completion of the training provided over the last two weeks.

We also thank Bob Cross for his part in bringing us all together and in facilitating this interaction.
Our champion over the last two weeks was young surveyor Alastair MacColl stepping outside his comfort zone but with a firm resolve – “to do it well”. And he did do it well! And now all his new friends want to come to his wedding!:)
