Showcase Capability

Taylor Bros has become a specialist in outfit accommodation services to the marine industry and has developed a prefabrication approach to projects for defence, oil and gas and maritime industry. Prefabrication is advantageous as it increases the amount of work conducted at Taylor Bros’ Hobart facility, which is set up for outfit accommodation activities. This reduces the amount of fabrication required at the shipyard during build or maintenance, thus increasing efficiency and productivity, compressing the project schedule and reducing the project cost.

Taylor Bros employ a wide range of tradesmen with extensive marine engineering experience, including class certified welders, machinists, diesel mechanics, electricians, ship wrights, carpenters and cabinet makers. This allows Taylor Bros to tackle a wide variety of projects in the marine sector including, Defence, Oil and Gas, Antarctic and general marine projects.
Taylor Bros has capabilities in Naval Architecture, Engineering, Design and Project Management.
Taylor Bros employees a prefabrication approach to many projects, which allows for the majority of the work to be completed in Hobart requiring less work onboard the vessel and thus less down time. Prefabrication of whole block/deck areas for the Air Warfare Destroyer program has resulted in large reduction in required installation hours and duration in the shipyard in Adelaide.
Taylor Bros provides in service support and ILS products for all supplies and equipment. It has supply agreements in place with overseas many suppliers of accommodation furnishing, galley, laundry, refrigeration space materials and equipment.
