Constructing Change

TWIC Tea & Tour at Scape Kingsford Inspires and Connects Women in Construction.

At Taylor, we understand the challenges women face in our industry, and are actively working to raise awareness and drive gender balance across our business, and the industry. Our sector-leading Taylor Women in Construction (TWIC) program provides engagement opportunities for our female members across all facets of the business. Through TWIC, we work to strengthen the internal and industry connections for our women, as well as provide the chance to catch-up and meet new faces.

On 25 September 2023, Taylor’s Scape Kingsford project hosted our recent TWIC Tea and Tour. The event began with light pastries and tea as attendees caught up with each other, learned about the TWIC Committee, upcoming industry and company events, and gained an overview of the Scape Kingsford student accommodation project and its key innovations.

Damian Fisher (Senior Site Manager) and Christina Succar (Graduate Site Engineer) then lead TWIC guests on a site tour around the impressive 18-storey development. Making their way to the structure’s highest current level, level 13, attendees learned about the hydraulic jumpform system, curtain-wall façade system, and concrete pour process while taking in city skyline views.

Guests walked through the new student accommodation rooms on typical floors and explored commercial areas on the lower levels, gaining insight into essential fitout features. Guests also viewed the prefabricated bathroom pods for each room, which many had never seen before!

Thank you to all involved in bringing this event to life. We look forward to hosting more regular TWIC events in the future.
