Melbourne wraps up the 105 parties




27 October 2017


Wrapping up our year long run of 105 celebrations, Melbourne showed how our willingness to “build big, small and anywhere” has worked for us in Victoria. Former AFL great, Ricky Nixon, was guest speaker at the party which was held in our office in Cecil Street, South Melbourne.

We’ve been in Melbourne since in 2007 after being asked by long-standing client, Consolidated Properties, to build a $10 million office building in Doncaster. We liked it so much, we decided to stay and set up shop. We purchased our current premises in South Melbourne early in 2011 and appointed Team Leaders Dan Casey, Ben Mcarthur and Bernie Nolan.

The leaders operate in different market segments, have different clients, and have the authority to go anywhere and build anything – provided they work within their means. They are ably supported by pre-construction manager, Steve Edwards.

Recently, due to demand, new offices were opened in Adelaide and Geelong, where trusted Hutchies’ people have been placed to take care of business. The Melbourne operation currently employs 143 people and is growing, with more space leased in South Melbourne and a strategy developed to deal with office and yard requirements for the years ahead.

Since arriving in Melbourne, we’ve completed around 240 projects throughout Victoria, with 25 currently projects under construction in Melbourne. We predict that by 2020 the Victorian operations will have expanded three-fold and be responsible for about $600 million of national turnover. At the end of the day, our goal is to be recognised as the best, fairest and most decent builder in Victoria.
