Australian Pioneers in CAD Designs for Sports Turf Consultants
Yellow Box Computing Services uses a unique combination of modern technologies to provide CAD Surveying and Design, CAD Irrigation System Design, Earthwork Calculations and 3D Flythroughs and Modelling services to assist the sports turf industry in the planning and construction of major projects including golf courses and sports ovals.
In the 1990s Yellow Box founder Gary Thomas pioneered the use of CAD and engineering software in the Australian sports turf industry by developing a computer system that automated the use of construction machinery based on a computer-generated model of the project.
In 1993 greens at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club were reconstructed using the Yellow Box system – the first time in the world that a golf green was reconstructed with the assistance of computer automation.
Soon after Gary joined forces with McMahons, one of Australia’s leading turf construction specialists, to assist with the construction of the surface of Melbourne’s Etihad Stadium and then the Royal Randwick Racetrack in Sydney. See more Yellow Box projects.
Since then Gary has worked on hundreds of computerised CAD design projects with a range of construction companies and developers, and has been proactive in sharing his expertise in CAD designs for sports turf consultants to others. The use of computer-driven machinery and modelling is now part of sports turf industry best practice, which gives Gary great pride.
Nowadays Gary continues to finesse the Yellow Box CAD design software while working on sports turf projects with Australia’s leading industry specialists – often drawing on his years of experience in turf management, his Diploma of Applied Science (Sports Turf Management) and two decades of teaching turf management in Melbourne.
He is now also joined at Yellow Box by fellow turf specialist Neil Maddigan.
Neil has worked in the sports turf industry since 1979 including many years as project manager for a major landscape and maintenance company where he developed skills in tendering, people and time management and managing large budgets.
He also managed the growth and redevelopment of a successful turf company.
Yellow Box Computing Services are the Australian founders of CAD Surveying and Design and CAD Irrigation System Design for the Sports Turf Industry – and are still the leaders in their field, constantly updating their systems and expertise to provide the industry’s best CAD Designs for sports turf consultants.
