Hutchinson Builders (Hutchies) is Australia’s largest privately owned construction company. Since 1912 and across five generations, it has placed family values at the core of every structure, every team, and every task it’s been involved in, providing a rich history and building a bright future.

The group operates right across the country, and delivers homes for clients in all markets, on any scale and in every location. It has a team of 1500, a strong balance sheet and a cash position that provides customers with the confidence that it will be around for the long haul no matter what the climate.

Hutchies is a diverse organisation, and the following divisions all operate under the banner of J Hutchinson Pty Ltd:

  • Hutchinson Builders, specialising in construction;
  • Hutchies Civil, specialising in urban infrastructure;

In Queensland, Hutchies commenced 2359 new buildings in the 2019/20 financial year, of which 2089 were units and 270 semi-detached.

2. Coral Homes

Coral Homes has been building quality new homes for more than 30 years and has an unwavering focus on providing excellent customer service while making the building experience enjoyable and rewarding. The company builds in a number of locations on Australia’s east coast, from Bundaberg in Queensland down to Sydney in NSW and offers a range of single and two-storey designer homes to choose from.

Coral Homes has a number of display centres where customers can browse and explore the designs on offer, which cater to many different lot sizes. The company makes finding a new home easier by partnering with some of Australia’s leading land developers to create a large selection of packaged home-and-land solutions that offer a number of inclusions. It can also assist with creating a customised house and land package that suits individual requirements.

Coral Homes also offers a fixed price guarantee to help provide financial certainty. Before any construction takes place, the organisation will specify a fixed price for both the building and site works. This reassures the client that there will be no hidden extra costs.

During the 2019/20 financial year, Coral Homes commenced 671 new buildings in Queensland, all of which were houses.

3. Multiplex

Multiplex is a diversified construction business operating in Australia and overseas. It has significant residential experience that ranges from low and medium-rise mixed-use developments to inner city high-rise apartment towers.

Along with its extensive residential portfolio, its projects include large office, retail, large-scale health and entertainment/hotel precincts and specialist design and construct projects.

The company was established in 1962 and since that time has successfully delivered more than 1000 projects, both at home and around the world. It is known for its collaborative and flexible working culture that focuses on meeting its clients’ goals. Multiplex’s own goal for every project is to not only deliver on time and on budget, but to outperform and exceed its clients’ expectations. It adds genuine value by leveraging its experience with that of its network. Each project has a dedicated team leader that guides the progress of the build.

Many of Multiplex’s employees have been with the company for decades, and clients benefit from this in-depth experience and expertise. The company is proud of its business and the rewarding partnerships it has with its clients and communities.

Multiplex commenced building 650 new units in Queensland over the 2019/20 financial year.

4. Metricon Homes

Established in 1976, Metricon Home’s original goal remains the same: to create innovative designs and build quality homes that suit all budgets.
