“After serving the building industry for 32 years, I wanted a change of career, and I decided, I’ll become a minister. In 2013 when I left, Paul came up to me and said, 'You know what? If you leave here, we might even find that a presence of something that you carry leaving us, so why don’t you come back [later] and be our pastoral carer?’. I call myself ‘the workplace chaplain’.”
One of the tallest cranes currently on the Gold Coast arrived on site over the weekend to kickstart construction of the first Dorsett hotel in Australia. We've partnered up with the Destination Gold Coast Consortium to build a 53-storey tower containing the 4.5 star luxury hotel as well as residential apartments. The 50-metre high crane will be used to construct the hotel's six level podium that will connect with the existing Star Grand. #hutchies #hutchiesbuilt #hutchiescrane #hutchinsonbuilders #destinationgoldcoast #destinationgoldcoastconsortium #thestargoldcoast #thestargc #dorsetthotels #fareastconsortium #chowtaifookenterprises #goldcoast #broadbeach #goldcoastconstruction #hospitalityandtourism #residential #australia #building #architecture #construction #crane

The Urban Developer
A $500 million apartment development spanning an entire block in South Brisbane has reached completion, marking the first finished Australian development for R&F Property.
“It’s important to continue raising awareness around women in construction. As a fourth year apprentice I believe I am instilling in other women the idea that you can be a woman and work in construction. As I progress further in my career I aim to use my voice to empower women to reach their full potential. As a future goal I have set my sights on becoming one of the first female construction Team Leaders within Hutchies, however I know that this is a process not to be rushed. As for my goals within the industry, I would love to help eradicate the common misconception that being a tradesperson is a last resort for people without degrees. People working on site in a trade are as important as people working in the office. Site and office roles complement each other and without one a project could not operate.” #humansofhutchies Erin Richardson, Apprentice Carpenter
