Winner for Central Queensland
Hutchinson Builders has taken out 21 awards around the State in this year’s Queensland Master Builders Association regional awards, including the coveted Project of the Year, in the Wide Bay Burnett and Central Queensland regions for Fresh & Save Food Warehouse at Maryborough and Blackwater Aquatic Centre respectively.
With entries across all regions, Hutchies won six awards in the Downs and Western Region, four in the Sunshine Coast, four in Far North Queensland, three in Central Queensland, two in Wide Bay Burnett, and two in Brisbane.
We have a history of being recognised at the MBA awards almost every year, and we asked Managing Director Greg Quinn about the secret to the success. “We see ourselves differently to other builders”, he said. “Relationships are everything to us – whether it’s with our people, our clients, or the local communities in which we live and work. And we couldn’t have achieved any of these projects without our loyal subbies, suppliers and consultants. It’s the broader team that makes everything come together.”
Now Australia’s largest privately owned construction company, Hutchinson Builders has come from humble beginnings. Established as a family business in 1912, we pride ourselves on staying true to our roots – we're still 100% Australian owned – and have a firm commitment to delivering high quality.
On average, Hutchies completes around 250 projects a year, giving us a huge selection of work from which to choose entries for the awards. We're pretty stoked about the dual Project of the Year accolades. “It’s an honour to have our work recognised,” says Greg Quinn. “To have two jobs acclaimed as projects of the year, as well as acknowledgement of our Indigenous Employment Program – Statim-Yaga – and the remote housing work we did on Thursday Island is quite humbling.”
Hutchies is celebrating our 105th anniversary this year. We have been a member of the Queensland Master Builders Association since 1920. “We have a long relationship and a deep respect for our peak industry association,” says Greg Quinn. “We’re honoured to be acknowledged by our peers at these awards.”
