As a multi-disciplinary group with experience in a diverse range of industries and professions, Technotia Laboratories currently spreads its operations across three domains of interest;

  • External consultancy to Alvarez & Marsal (A&M) Research and Development (R&D) Tax Incentives/Claims
  • Structural Design and IT & Technology industry projects
  • Academia and Scholarships

Alvarez & Marsal (A&M)

Technotia Laboratories is an external consultant to Alvarez & Marsal (A&M), working together to design, build and maintain software specifically designed for A&M’s activity within the tax space and to support other activities undertaken by A&M Australia in a myriad of spaces.

Structural Design and IT & Technology

Members of Technotia Laboratories have over 150 years of combined experience in delivering a diverse range of high-level and eminent built and unbuilt projects across industries and sectors like technology, construction, health, defence and research & development.

The team works across fields of structural design and IT & Technology, providing members with the freedom to work in interdisciplinary teams and partake in a range of projects outside of their typical field of operation – a point of difference we are proud of that allows for members to remain quick and agile across a scope of projects.

Scholarships & Academia

Members of Technotia Laboratories are affiliated with universities across Australia and overseas, providing mentoring and support to high-achieving students where possible.

In particular, the SNXG (Swinburne Engineering Excellence Group) scholarships support high achieving students to excel in the field of engineering. These scholarships aim to provide a cohort of engineering students at various stages in their studies with support and encouragement, which could create opportunities to engage in peer-to-peer mentoring as well as learning from industry experts to help foster the talent and minds of future engineers. There are three scholarships in total on offer in 2023, one for a second-year undergraduate, one for a third year undergraduate and one student undertaking a Master’s degree. 

How to Design a Structure



The How to Design a Structure publication was instigated by Prof. James Murray-Parkes and the team at the Multiplex Engineering Innovations Group.

The book outlines the progress, evolution and solutions to structural design alternatives made by James and his team between 2013 and 2018. It provides an overview of the wide range of opportunities for alternative design and optimisation which are present in projects in spaces from modular construction to tall buildings and more.

Handbook for the Design of Modular Structures

Monash University, Victorian Government


This was initially instigated by Prof. James Murray-Parkes, Prof. Yu Bai, Adam Styles, Angela Wang, Monash University, the Victorian Government, and various industry partners.

This handbook was the first of its kind in the world, providing integrated solutions and experiences to industry, government and the community including: Design for performance; Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA); and Regulatory compliance.
