From Horn Is­land in the Tor­res Strait to New Zealand, Canada to Ja­pan, Hutchin­son Builders have han­dled projects of any size re­gard­less of the ge­o­graph­i­cal lo­ca­tion.

Al­though they all present their unique chal­lenges, Hutchin­son Builders be­lieve the com­pany is geared to han­dle al­most any­thing in any lo­ca­tion.

Re­cently com­pleted projects by the Cairns team have in­cluded Bedarra Is­land Re­sort re­fur­bish­ment, James Cook Univer­sity E1 science build­ing, Dunk Is­land Re­sort re­fur­bish­ment, Blue­wa­ter Canal sub­di­vi­sion civil works and sales cen­tre, tran­si­tory ac­com­mo­da­tion on Horn Is­land, James Cook Univer­sity Aus­tralian Trop­i­cal For­est In­sti­tute build­ing, Skyrail ter­mi­nal up­grade and ad­di­tions and the Cairns In­ter­na­tional Ho­tel’s Day Spa.

This year also saw the start of con­struc­tion of the Ma:Mu Rain­for­est Canopy Walk­way near In­n­is­fail.

The project in­cludes the con­struc­tion of 400m of el­e­vated walk­way, bridges, tow­ers and a for­est flfloor walk­way.

Once com­pleted the canopy walk is set to be­come a unique Aus­tralian eco­tourism at­trac­tion.

Since April 2006, the com­pany has been work- ing at the Good Coun­sel School in In­n­is­fail rec­ti­fy­ing dam­ages from last year’s Cy­clone Larry.

Th­ese works have in­cluded ad­di­tions to ex­ist­ing class rooms and up­grades to the ex­ist­ing church, mak­ing it a spec­tac­u­lar fea­ture of the school.

Con­struc­tion is also just about to start on Ma­jes­tic Palms, a multi-unit de­vel­op­ment in Var­ley St, Yorkeys Knob.

The de­vel­op­ment in­cludes 52 units over four build­ings which are built on one podium slab form­ing the top of the be­low ground car park.

Due to the rapid growth of Hutchin­son Builders over­flflow­ing into each re­gion, the Cairns team has out­grown its Sheri­dan St of­fi­fice and has pur­chased a 2199sq m prop­erty at Smith­fi­field which will be con­verted into a new yard.

The ex­ist­ing 1000sq m build­ing will be fi­fit­ted out to ac­com­mo­date the com­pany’s cur­rent 35-per­son team.

The size of its new premises also means Hutchin­son Builders can con­tinue along with its latest growth trend as there is plenty of room for fu­ture ex­pan­sion. Cairns team leader Paul De Jong says con­struc­tion should be com­plete early 2008.
