Taylor Engineering encourages, supports, and rewards staff membership and active involvement in many local community, national, and international organizations committed to the community and diversity.
Socks are one of the most overlooked and needed items for the homeless community. In February, Taylor Engineering was able to donate 526 pairs of socks, in all sizes, to the Trinity Rescue Mission in Jacksonville, Florida. The donation came right on time for their first annual “Search and Rescue”, where they went out into the community and distributed much needed supplies.
The Salvation Army Angel Tree program helps children in need during the holidays. The Angel donation includes at least one full outfit and a gift that the child has asked for.
The Sulzbacher Center is located in downtown Jacksonville and benefits homeless and at-risk women, children, and men.Through various meals, shelter, and life skills programs, Sulzbacher Center seeks to empower Jacksonville’s homeless population. Donating time is just one way Taylor Engineering gives back to the community.
Through low cost veterinary services available to the community to various pet programs, No More Homeless Pets benefits cats and dogs in need throughout northeast Florida. Taylor Engineering is proud to donate to such a worthy cause.
Through its participation with the Florida Engineering Society (FES), Taylor Engineering supports community outreach activities that promote science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Our employees are actively involved in programs such as the ACE Mentor Program, the FES K-12 outreach committee, and MATHCOUNTS© and Taylor Engineering is a proud sponsor of the Race for Relevance, an annual fundraising event to support scholarships for high school and college-level students.
Taylor Engineering is proud to be able to help aspiring engineers reach their education goals by offering a scholarship through the University of North Florida.
Congratulations to William Mele, Taylor Engineering’s 2016 scholarship recipient.

In 2015, the Avenida Menendez seawall in St. Augustine, Florida, received the American Public Works Association’s Public Works Project of the Year. Taylor Engineering led a multidisciplinary team in the design and construction of a replacement for the deteriorating Avenida Menendez seawall, a historic (+160-year-old) coquina block structure protecting the downtown St. Augustine waterfront.
Design specifications for the replacement seawall had to address practical considerations such as storm protection, enhanced public access to the waterfront, and improved traffic flow along Avenida Menendez; as well as the preservation of the historic seawall, including Federal Emergency Management Agency, State Historic Preservation Office, and Florida Division of Emergency Management compliance requirements; and aesthetic compatibility with the historic downtown character. The design solution: construct a new seawall waterside of the deteriorating seawall. The new seawall provides better protection to the inland areas behind the historic seawall, enhances public access to the St. Augustine waterfront via a pedestrian promenade and carriage pathway, provides improved parking and traffic flow, and preserves in place the historic structure.
