#This is Hutchies

Hutchies has been building the structures in which Australians live, work, study, shop and play since 1912. From our early beginnings, we have grown into a dynamic and diverse construction company, delivering sophisticated projects across a comprehensive portfolio

As Australia's largest privately owned construction company, our business capability and complexity is well beyond that of a ‘Mum and Dad’ builder, but our core values remain very much embedded in the idea of investing in relationships, taking care of each other and the community, and working towards a common goal. We pride ourselves on working with you as a true construction partner.

We are a ‘safe pair of hands’ who will guide you through the construction process, navigating complex building codes and regulations, while remaining open and transparent. Hutchies has an industry reputation for decency and fair play – these characteristics combined with our demonstrated building capability and $390M+ strong balance sheet, underpin our company’s performance. 

We have a national presence across more urban and regional centres of Australia's east and central coasts. Our philosophy is to follow our clients' needs, building not just in big cities but also in the most remote regions of Australia.

Longevity. Family values. Knowledge. Skill. And national reach. This is Hutchies.

#Services

Our building blocks are the core of what Hutchies offers. They are the foundation of our success. 

Our construction solutions cover the whole spectrum of size and scope. Our average project value is around $35M, but no job is too big or too small for Hutchies. And we work across lots of sectors, including: commercial and residential high rise, health, education, retail, and aged care – just to name a few.

With teams around Australia, we always source suppliers and products that are local to our projects whenever possible. Our regional teams have the specialised local knowledge that is the difference between just putting together ‘bricks and sticks’. 

We care about keeping the smallest possible environmental footprint. Hutchies always chooses the most sustainable option available when making business decisions and we encourage our subbies and suppliers to do the same when they are working with us. 

Hutchies understands that high quality doesn’t have to mean high cost. Right from the get go, we work with our clients to make sure they are getting the best possible value, ensuring buildability without compromising quality or design.

#Benefits

We're not like other builders. Relationships are everything to us – whether it’s with our people, our clients, or the local communities in which we live and work. 

Our clients come back to us time after time. They tell us it’s because they know where they stand with Hutchies – everything is upfront and transparent. It’s the same attitude that keeps our people with us long term, too. Trust, respect, and a genuine spirit of everyone pitching in together means that our senior people stick around – on average for 16 years or more! 

Our solid performance makes us stand out, too. Our strong balance sheet and cash position give people the confidence that we’ll be around for the long haul.

We are Green Stars. We have delivered more than $4B of Green Star rated buildings. One in every 12 Green Star Rated buildings in Australia has been built by us. In fact, no other builder has completed more Green Star projects than us.

We also have our own equipment – that’s kind of unusual for a builder. We own and maintain our own machinery, which means it’s available on demand; we can offer less expensive prices, and we know it works and is safe.

#Structure

The backbone of Hutchies is our unique structure. It’s our framework; our nerve centre. We bet you’ve never seen an org chart like ours before. This is what sets us apart. It’s rare for a business to offer ready access to senior leaders the way that Hutchies does and it’s our flat structure that makes it easy for anyone to talk to the most senior people in our organisation. Our structure reflects our culture: inclusive and accessible.

Each of our 25 business units operates autonomously, with each Team Leader reporting directly to our Managing Director. We reckon this is what keeps our business personal, accountable and nimble. With so many independent business units, it also means there are terrific career opportunities in Hutchies. Some of Hutchies' Veterans have been with us since their apprenticeship days.

I believe the strongest measure of a company’s culture is the longevity of its employees. Hutchinson Builders is currently holding more than $30M of employee entitlements a compelling indication of the average tenure of our people. The fact that so many people have made their career here at Hutchies is our proudest achievement.

#History

Since 1912, when John (Jack) Hutchinson I and his young family immigrated to Australia from Lancashire, Hutchies has continued to grow and develop into the iconic national brand we are today. Our current Chairman, Scott Hutchinson, is now the fourth generation Hutchinson to preside over the business — he took over from his father Jack when he retired. Scott’s son, Jack Jnr, is now working in the business too. Over 112 years, we’ve been involved in some pretty amazing construction projects and created quite a bit of history.

#Recognition

Hutchies' contribution to society is often recognised through prestigious awards and honours. They're really humbling and give us even more pride in what we do as good community citizens. They recognise the passion our people have in backing the things that matter most to them, of which Hutchies will always get behind and support. 

Our Statim Yaga Indigenous training and employment initiative has been widely regarded for the real impact its making to employment parity. It's supported by Hutchies Training, which in itself is highly recognised through multiple Australian Training Awards for their industry leading apprenticeships and skills development programs. 

From a construction perspective, each year our project teams across Australia are recipients of various awards. They acknowledge the hard work of our people and their quality workmanship and innovation in the construction industry. We're regular participants in awards programs with the Master Builders Association, Australian Institute of Building, Australian Institute of Architects and more.

#Heart

Hutchies is all heart. There’s something about our culture that sets us aside from other large businesses. It's not easy to describe yet is so easily understood. We work hard to pull together to get the best results for our clients – no matter what we’re up against. We celebrate our achievements together, support local communities, and believe in a ‘fair go’ for everyone. We were born as a family business, and we’ve held on to the same core values for over a century; taking care of each other, our clients and the community; and working towards a common goal. We’re passionate about staying connected with our communities, giving back, and doing the right thing.

We believe in the power of honesty, integrity and transparency. All doors are open always – all the way to the top. We empower our people — to make decisions and try new things. We give people the knowledge, skills and tools they need to grow and develop and delight our clients through their work. We ask for help when we need it – and receive it unconditionally. We own our mistakes. Hard work and mutual respect underpin everything we do.
