Baird & Hayes formed in 1946 when Ken Baird returned from World War 2. Ken Baird was known to have taken on jobs throughout Southern and Western Queensland, sometimes mounted on camels where conditions were too rough for a truck. Keith Hayes commenced work with Ken Baird in the 1950’s, and became the second Principal in the 1970’s.
Ken Baird and Keith Hayes developed the practice and built a reputation for technical excellence and dedicated professionalism as well as good old fashioned service. This tradition continues today in our motto of QUALITY, VALUE, SERVICE, and FRIENDLINESS.
Peter Henry was the third surveyor to become the Principal, taking over the business after Keith Hayes retired in the year 2000.
Our clients range from investment and development companies to individuals or family trusts who wish to develop land for residential, commercial or industrial building projects. We have a broad experience with clients involved in land development and mining industries and various types of rural industries such as quarries and batching plants. Whilst a large percentage of our business is associated with locally based private land owners, investors and companies, we also have many clients from Local and State Government Sectors, Building and Plumbing Contractors, Bulk Water Supply Authorities and other Services Authorities. We therefore understand the importance of limiting project costs and managing approvals within the statutory timeframes.
Baird & Hayes follow Quality Assurance Procedures for checking and final reviewing of all documentation before it leaves our office. All projects are reviewed on a weekly basis to check progress of applications and to ensure that no unnecessary delays are encountered.
