Taylors rewarded at AIS Melbourne Equinox with overwhelmingly positive crowd

One of Melbourne’s most innovative events in the architectural space was held at the Royal Exhibition Building just last week. The AIS Equinox Exhibition is designed to ‘connect architects, interior designers and design specifiers with product suppliers’ in a relaxed environment different to those of regular industry tradeshows. Taylors was graciously invited to attend the event to educate enthusiasts and industry professionals alike on how emerging 3D technologies can benefit and reshape future architectural surveying practices.

“There was a great deal of interest in the technology and expertise we had on display and it was exciting to be able to show that to the Architectural market.” Eight keen Taylors representatives were present at the Taylors booth, which showcased an array of virtual reality glasses for crowds to experiment with as they pleased, as well as Taylors TIMMS machine – a breakthrough in surveying technology.

“I think Taylors represented our industry really well, from what I could tell, our booth was always busy with different people waiting to ask questions and see the different aspects of what we do here that we probably all take for granted.” Remarked Senior Surveyor Mr Watkins. “Both Yin and Vaman represented Taylors exceptionally well and manned the booth with enthusiasm.” The Taylors booth was never slow with surging crowds of interested architects, graduate designers and developers all keen to understand Taylors services and how they could be applied to various industry projects. The discussions were ‘eye opening’ for both attendees and Taylors representatives, with new relationships quickly building over exchanges of knowledge and positive feedback for Taylors attendance consistently flowing.

In addition to the company presence on the floor, 3D Modelling and BIM Manager Alastair MacColl delivered a significant presentation addressing ‘Reality Capture and Scan to BIM’ – see video below – to a full house of approximately 40 plus individuals. His talk kept all the attendees intrigued and imparted crucial knowledge regarding real life applications; numerous questions followed the presentation which were handled ‘extremely professionally’.

“Alastair’s talk was really well received, he’s a real credit to Taylors. It was really great to see some of the finished projects that I have gotten to take a glimpse of in my day to day office travels. The event space was amazing and the organisers did a really good job with the management of it all and even supplied headphones for all the seminars for easy listening and gave the ability to drown out all the background noise.”

The feedback from the visitors to the booth, and the people watching the presentation was overwhelmingly positive, with the opportunity to attend being regarded as ‘highly rewarding’.

“I’d highly recommend everyone at Taylors taking advantage of these opportunities should they arise in the future.”
