Hutchinson Builders is one of Australia’s largest privately-owned building and construction companies.
Established in 1912 our heritage has been forged by a century of service to the construction industry and is testament to the company’s commitment, expertise and integrity in all that we do.
Hutchinson Builders’ turnover for FY2013 is expected to exceed $1.3B and employ more than 1300 staff, with projects as diverse in purpose as they are in location.
Projects undertaken by the company include commercial and residential high-rise, mining and resources industry infrastructure projects, industrial, sporting, health, government, retail, education, hotels, clubs, tourism, civil works and modular construction, particularly student and resource sectors accommodation.
With its headquarters in Brisbane, Hutchinson Builders now has a network of offices throughout Australia that reaches from Cairns to Hobart, the Bowen Basin to the Pilbara and Sydney to Perth. The company is also establishing a presence in New Zealand.
The growth of the company is the legacy of Jack Hutchinson Snr who guided the direction of Hutchinson Builders for many years as Managing Director and Chairman.
In 1992 Jack shifted the focus of his role to Chairman of the Board making way for his son Scott, a builder with a Bachelor of Engineering Degree from Queensland University, to take over as Managing Director. In October 2001 Jack retired from active day- to-day duties as Chairman, although he still retains a prominent interest in the business.
Scott has been responsible for expanding the business significantly since taking the reins, initially as Managing Director and subsequently as Chairman.
In 2001 following Jack’s retirement, Scott was appointed Chairman of the Board with Greg Quinn being appointed Managing Director – the first non-family member to hold that position.
Greg joined Hutchinson Builders after 17 years with the Queensland & NSW Master Builders Association where he was Executive Director of both organisations.
Scott Hutchinson and Greg Quinn are working closely together to take Hutchinson’s into its second century as a vibrant, contemporary and innovative construction company that maintains a healthy respect for traditional values and the proud heritage that has been meticulously crafted over a century.
While the company’s primary focus has been in Australia with the establishment of a presence on a national scale we have also undertaken projects in New Zealand, Japan and Canada.
Hutchinson Builders continues to grow and develop to suit the ever changing economic and construction industry landscapes.
