Guiding the Future of Construction

Providing UTS Built Environment Association Students with an Invaluable Experience.

On Wednesday, 6 September, 2023, the Taylor team at Roseville College hosted an exclusive site tour for eight students from the UTS Built Environment Association (BEA). Dean Fondas (Project Director) led the students through a brief project overview before taking them on an immersive tour of the site.

For many students, it was their first time on a live construction site. Students were provided valuable insights into the construction methodology of the project, learning about different challenges such as logistics and crane operations, and also got a detailed explanation of processes like post-tensioning. During the visit, they saw the piling work around the project, observed the Level 1 concrete slab being formed, and witnessed the construction of the working deck for the 30-meter horizontal beams. Dean also talked to them about the practical aspects of daily operations and emphasised the importance of safety and sustainability in construction practices.

Following the tour, students enjoyed a light morning tea while having informal discussions about career pathways and opportunities within the industry. Nick Tsai (Cadet) highlighted the importance of continuous learning through asking questions and taking up new opportunities. Overall, the tour left a positive impression on the students, with the team receiving extremely positive feedback.

As a proud Gold Sponsor of the UTS BEA, Taylor seeks to support students’ professional and personal development and help them develop their skills and knowledge beyond the classroom.


I really enjoyed getting out on a construction site for the first time and seeing everything I’ve learnt so far first-hand for myself… It was a great opportunity to hear from experienced individuals in the industry.


The opportunity to see the site in person, going through the site plans, and understanding background knowledge was what I enjoyed most… I learnt establishing a work-life balance is important and learning is key.


The site visit added in-depth experience and knowledge for me. Dean and Nick were very easy going… The tour gave me exposure to the reality of the construction site and work culture. I learnt company culture is extremely essential and worth more than the monetary benefits.
