TGM at a glance

Decades of experience

TGM was founded in December 1995 following a merger of three leading engineering and surveying consulting practices. Further acquisitions in 2000 saw the firm become one of the largest engineering consultancies in the Geelong and Ballarat regions. TGM established its presence in the Melbourne market when it acquired Parry Fraser & Jones in 2007.

A team of 100 highly skilled and dedicated staff

TGM has assembled a team of skilled specialists in engineering, surveying and town planning, with deep expertise in a range of sectors including land development, building construction and infrastructure development.

TGM in the Community

Ride the Bellarine

Ride the Bellarine raises much needed funds for Rotary's world wide effort to "End Polio Now". TGM is proud to have been a major sponsor of the event and provided escort vehicles along the circuit.

Victoria Park Inclusive Play Space, Ballarat

The new Victoria Park Inclusive Play Space in Ballarat will provide opportunities for people of all abilities to experience and engage in play, including a double flying fox, multiple swings, slides, carousel and a fun aquatic component. The TGM team provided engineering design services, at no charge, for this worthy project. The playground is due for completion later this year.

Dawnbusters Fun Run

The Dawnbusters Fun Run was a huge success, with almost 600 entrants participating in the 5km fun run in December 2015. TGM is proud to continue its association with Give Where You Live and was a major sponsor of the event, providing vehicles and equipment. We look forward to continue our  association with Give Where You Live in 2016. 

Survey equipment finds a new home

TGM donated survey equipment to the Model Towns Community Trust (MTCT) in Fiji. The donation of this equipment continues TGM’s long standing support of the Trust through Rotary. A theodolite was combined with new accessories. The equipment can be used for gathering topographical data and setting out new works and buildings.
