On Thursday 2nd of October, Leo Bateman and Raymond Li presented at the RMIT Final Year Professional Practice class.
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.
We are very proud to announce that Taylors were finalists (final 3) for the Innovation and Commercialisation award at the 2014 Asia-Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards.
Hosted jointly by SSSI and SIBA, in conjunction with the Locate14 Conference, Asia-Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards (APSEA) showcase the technical diversity and innovation evident across the spatial industry.
Every year, members of the spatial sciences community make significant contributions that impact across many sectors of society. APSEA is an excellent opportunity to recognise and reward these contributions. It is also a special night to recognise the achievements and service contributions of professionals within the industry.
Taylors were in the final 3 for the Innovation and Commercialisation award for our NBN Survey Solution. We use vehicle mounted LIDAR to capture spatial and qualitative data which is used to design fibre optic cable routes for the aerial deployment aspects of the …

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.
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 …
A great day was had by all on Friday 19th April at the beautiful Heritage Golf and Country Club for the annual Baptcare and CHT Architects’ Charity Golf Day.
Director, Nick Hooper, and Town Planner, Brooke Templeton, joined 95 other players in a great game of golf, followed by lunch. Through sponsorships, players fees and charity holes, the day raised over $45,000 for the Baptcare Family and Community Services programs, which includes:
Programs working with children in foster or kinship care
Parenting programs such as, Home-Start programs for struggling families
Programs supporting children with disabilities
This was Baptcare’s most successful result, in terms of income raised, for the event in the five years they have held it.
