We’ve just added 6 new Hilux to the Taylors fleet across our survey and engineering teams. Now more than ever you will see our famous ‘red cube’ vehicles throughout Melbourne metro area and surrounds. We are excited to be continuing our growth strategies and delivering on fast, mobile services to our clients.
As an early adapter of spatial technologies, Taylors has recently purchased a second survey drone and we are now flying projects on a weekly basis. The technology is enabling us to provide some really innovative solutions to a broad range of clients across the Urban Development and Infrastructure markets.
Our operators are CASA Certified and we have a full suite of safety, privacy and quality procedures in place.
What a great result for our Masterplanning team who recently completed another concept design in Indonesia. Hot from the minds of our Melbourne and Brisbane team members, Taylors work has supported the feasibility and potential acquisition of a significant Industrial city development of 1000 hectares.
Our Australian expertise together with our local knowledge and partnerships in Jakarta has assisted our client to get a great head start with their Indonesia ventures.
We are 10 months into our office in Christchurch and being involved in the rebuild project has been such a rewarding experience for our business.
We have created great opportunities for a number of our team who have been involved in fly in fly out or permanent relocation and we have a number of kiwi’s in the mix to a total of 10. The start-up nature of the office has been a challenge however we have now established a solid platform for significant amount of rebuild work which lies ahead.
A number of our clients from Australia and South East Asia are also benefiting from our newly formed local knowledge and networks in Christchurch.
What a great way to lead into Christmas with the announcement in early December that we have been appointed onto the Technical Services Panel by Melbourne Water. Our Engineering and Project Management team will be undertaking Project Support services and our Infrastructure team will be undertaking Engineering Surveying. When you consider that only two or three consultants have been appointed to each panel, we are so proud of this result and consider it a solid endorsement of our strong customer centric focus and commitment to innovation.
Frankston City Council approved the application for a 17-storey apartment complex at 6 Davey Street, Frankston on Monday 10 November. The whole of Taylors’ Built Environments Planning Team have had involvement with this project in the last 7-8 months. The apartment complex will be the tallest building in Frankston consisting of 63 apartments overlooking Port Phillip Bay.
According to Michael Meyer, Taylors’ Planning Manager, this project has been smoother than expected. “When working on a project of this scale and complexity you expect more hurdles along the way,” said Mr Meyer.

This Sunday October 19, Sarkis Yelandjian, will ride 100km in Bupa Around the Bay 2014 in order to raise funds for Aussie children in need and create a better future for them through education.

The class, hosted by Professor Mark R. Shortis, is a mix of career and industry presentations from three spatial societies. This was not only a great opportunity for Taylors to help students in their transition from study into the workforce, but also to attract great people to become a part of the Taylors journey.
