Diverse client base
Whether local, national or international, Hutchinson has the construction needs of its clients fully covered.
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.
