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.

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 …
