Australia's Local National Builder
On Wednesday we were joined by the Minister for Education The Hon Grace Grace and some keen students to turn the first sod on Stage 2 of FVSSC (Fortitude Valley State Secondary College). After successfully completing Stage 1 nine weeks early in 2020, we were excited to get back on ground at the school and get the next stage underway.
Yesterday was another very successful Clean Up Australia Day for our Hutchies' crew of 25 volunteers who picked up an incredible 302kg of rubbish on Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island). The majority of rubbish was unfortunately washed up debris on the beaches including a lot of plastic, timber, rope, thongs, lighters and glow sticks. We really appreciate our volunteers' efforts to keep Australia beautiful for another year but we encourage everyone to continue the clean up - if you see any rubbish out and about, dump it in a bin to keep it clear of our oceans and waterways.
Each of us has a choice in everything we do to make a difference. To change the way we see things, and the way things have been. To truly understand respect. Together we can achieve better. So let’s all choose to challenge ourselves to do differently not just today but every day.
Hutchies’ coveted Estimator of the Year Awards began back in 1996 to recognise the stand out estimating talent we have across our company. This year is the first time in its history that two very deserving recipients were crowned co-winners of the 2020 Estimator of the Year Award. A huge congratulations to Simon McGilvray (Russell Fryer Team in Brisbane – joined Hutchies in 2011) and Ayman Khalaf (John Koumoukelis Team in Sydney – joined Hutchies in 2016). They will forever be part of Hutchies’ Estimator Hall of Fame!
Across Australia, Hutchies welcomed students into the new 2021 school year with a range of cutting edge learning facilities. Education projects have been a staple of our work since 1913 when Jack Hutchinson I worked on the original Manly State School, which we’ve just finished installing a new Hutchies Modular prep building there (in only 7 days!). Lots has changed in a century, and we’re proud to continue pushing boundaries with school facilities for our future generations to thrive in.
Very cool to see #hutchiesbuilt Walan in Brisbane and Arc by Crown Group in Sydney named as two of the best tall buildings across the globe in this year’s @ctbuh_hq Annual Awards! Walan was also named as the Best Tall Residential / Hotel Building overall for 2021. Well done to everyone involved on these two projects!

Hutchies is pleased to see current outbreaks around Australia are being managed well thanks to the great response from affected communities.
