Tonkin + Taylor is expanding into Queensland, with Dayan Jayasekera appointed as Geotechnical and Tunnels Director to lead the expansion.
Nicole Neal, T+T Group’s general manager in Australia, says the expansion is a significant step for both Tonkin + Taylor Australia and Chadwick Geotechnics.
“This is an exciting next step toward our strategic priority of becoming more globally connected,” she says. “We’re starting by growing in Australia, and plan to continue this growth long term. A new physical presence in Queensland gives our people another location to work or live in, and in-person support for our clients from people who are familiar with the Queensland market.”
