30th November

At Taylors, we encourage the professional development of all our team members and regularly participate in workshops, seminars, industry membership and affiliate activities to provide a wealth of experience and expertise to our clients.

Our Survey and Subdivision team is one of the largest in Victoria with over 25 Survey professionals and 10 Licensed Surveyors from a range of diverse backgrounds and experiences. As major contributors to the Survey profession, we always have surveying graduates on Professional Training Agreements to obtain their Licence and continue the Taylors legacy.

24th October

The 2018 AIS Equinox Exhibitions continued their 2018 run visiting the arts and culture capital of Melbourne earlier this month, and Taylors are proud to have once again been exhibiting the latest technology developments and their benefits to the architecture space.

Designed to connect architects, interior designers and design specifiers in a boutique environment, AIS Equinox offers a relaxed networking night different from larger tradeshows or exhibitions. Taking centre stage in this intimate setting, was the Taylors booth, with VR and new augmented reality developments on show for an enthused audience.

The night was well attended, by industry leaders and young professionals keen to know what was new in the technology space with the lure of interactivity drawing many to the Taylors booth. With several talented Taylors team members on hand scattered amongst the audience, knowledge sharing opportunities were endless.

“Discussing the …

From the Working Environment to the Playing Ground

27th September

The annual football luncheons are the most anticipated events on the Taylors sporting and social calendars as it gives a chance for directors and clients alike to enjoy a well-deserved afternoon away from the regular working environment and in the midst of the great playing ground, the MCG.

This years UDIA and PCA Footy Lunches were well attended by Taylors delegates and esteemed clients, some of whom had not experienced this opportunity before, but were grateful for the fun day out. As Taylors General Manager of Business Development – and devoted St Kilda supporter –, Sarkis Yelandjian explains, “It’s a good social day where everyone is in a great mood”.

The UDIA Footy Luncheon was the first occasion on the calendar this year with key speakers from both the AFL and AFLW discussing topics surrounding equality and work-life balance at great …

Focus On: Design Guidelines | The Foundation of Good Design

Posted by Kathryn Kutchel in Business units, Design Guidelines, Melbourne, Our people, Planning.

20th September

The key to good design, comes from having good foundations and guidelines to follow. Whether it be the design of public spaces, the layout of cities, or the building design of a local neighbourhood, having design guidelines in place ensures safe, liveable spaces. Some of these guidelines stem from common sense, while others are developed from collections of study, but all of these intend to implement a principle without restricting creativity in design.

At Taylors, the Design Guidelines team is autonomous, working behind the spotlight to ensure quality delivery of multiple projects, but they are a crucial complement to multiple teams, as Design Guidelines Manager, Melanie Memery explains.

Where does Design Guidelines sit among the Taylors team and what does the day to day look like?
We’re a self-run team, but we operate within the Urban Development Planning team and get most of …

Speak Up about Mental Health in the Workplace

14th September

Are you okay?
It’s a simple question, often raised flippantly in water cooler conversation. It can also be said in ways like, ‘how’s it going?’ ‘how are you?’ ‘what’s happening?’, but all variations are often met with the response, ‘good’, ‘fine’, ‘alright’. How often do we ask, are you okay, and really listen to the answer? You may say you listen every time, but is it only on days like R U OK Day that you stop and focus? At Taylors, mental health in the workplace is as vital as physical health, and we’re working toward raising awareness around the issue that needs to be addressed.

In light of R U OK Day this year, the Taylors office took the opportunity to officially recognise the initiative and progress toward implementing a framework that will aim to reduce the stigma around mental health …
