With a limited presence in Darwin prior to the Gateway project, this is Hutchies’ flagship project in the region. The delivery team represents a cross-pollination of our best people from three of our core teams in Queensland and New South Wales. By creating the ideal team, we have been able to offer $6.5M of value management and optimised the project schedule to reduce total time by three months.

Our proven retail capability, ability to mitigate costs, and willingness to take on risk as part of a design and construct (D&C) approach, positioned Hutchies favourably against our competitors during the tender process.

The ultimate award of the project to Hutchinson Builders was the culmination of a four year relationship with joint venture partners Coombes Property Group and Challenger Life Nominees.

The first stage will incorporate over 30,000m² of undercover shopping and entertainment facilities – including Woolworths, Big W, Event Cinemas and 80 other retail tenancies – with parking for over 1,300 vehicles and a mezzanine level fitness centre.
