Taylors has officially arrived in Christchurch New Zealand and have hit the ground running on a demanding and fast-paced project.
Following the Canterbury earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 Christchurch has been in a period of recovery. The physical and psychological damage caused has made a significant mark on the City and the surrounds. Taylors is pleased to form part of the project team assisting in the rebuild of the City.
Forming part of a team working for a major insurance provider, Taylors are carrying out an investigation and assessment of residential properties which have been damaged beyond the cap for direct Government funding for repairs. The properties we are specialising in are the multi-unit multi-insured, which are best described as groupings of houses of which are each insured under different providers. Taylors’ role in the project is to assess the damage to …

Taylors’ Town Planner, from our Queensland office, recently featured in Brisbane’s Northwest News and Courier Mail article ‘Putting the Squeeze on City: Call to Upgrade Local Infrastructure’.
Michael Brinums discusses how he believes upgrading infrastructure in the northwest is the key to making the draft Brisbane City Plan a success.
Taylors town planner Michael Brinums said the plan would be a step forward for Brisbane but the city may struggle to provide enough infrastructure.
“The city plan does incorporate good design principles, which is a big positive,” Mr. Brinums said.
“The downfall is public transport infrastructure is not up to scratch. For me the biggest challenge is managing cars and our transport infrastructure. Councils just don’t have the funds allocated for that sort of stuff.”
He said the Ferny Grove railway line could service predicted hubs at …

Congratulations to our competitors for their fantastic results in the 2013 Hertz Corporate Relay on the 20th of November at Albert Park Lake.
The 2013 Hertz Relay Run is set to be Melbourne’s biggest and best midweek twilight running event of the summer season. It’s a unique timed relay run where teams of three runners pass a timing band instead of the traditional baton and take to the Albert Park Lake course to complete one 5km lap each.
For half a century Taylors have been evolving their integrated suite of planning and survey disciplines, using the best-available technology to stay ahead in the field. For the Jaques Richmond project, Taylors provided a range of services, from the early survey set up, cadastral boundary checking, and establishment of the gridlines and primary control network, through to ongoing as-built surveying.
The early set up was handled by the Taylors Urban Development team, who faced the challenge posed by surveying for a new build in an existing industrial structure, with limited access points and all pre-existing services still onsite. The second survey stage was undertaken by the Taylors Infrastructure survey team, who needed to maintain a flexible schedule in order to meet the demands of the construction program. The teams used the latest robotic Trimble S8 surveying equipment, which efficiently deliver results …
On the 31st of July, our Board, senior management team and 10-Year Club members got together with the past directors of Taylors to celebrate our 50th anniversary milestone. Special guests included founder John Taylor, past directors Peter Avery and Geoff Welsh, as well as more recent past director Creighton Parker. Unfortunately past director Nik Phizacklea couldn’t be with us due to heart surgery and we wish him well in his recovery.
Over dinner and drinks at Taxi restaurant, a great night of reflection and reminiscing was had by all with many stories shared about the ‘good old days’, particularly prompted by a review of the first Job Book, early days Taylors memorabilia and photos from the archives.
The featured survey photo of John Taylor in 1963 stands out as an iconic representation of where we have come from and just how far …
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 …
