At Harris HMC Construction our desire to exceed our customers' expectations is our key success factor. It is derived from a sustained commitment to our companyâs mission and core values.
We recognise the importance of working collaboratively as 'partners' with stakeholders to consistently achieve superior outcomes.
Design & Construct
An attractive construction method for many of our clients, a Design & Construct build allow us to deliver adaptable and viable construction solutions without compromising on quality.
We work closely with our clients to understand their scope, budget and time needs, and create a design and construction process that delivers an exceptional result and a positive experience.
Faster, more efficient, and far more sustainable, Modular Construction provides our clients with an affordable alternative to traditional building practices.
While our patented Modular Construction method frees us from the design restrictions others are bound by, allowing us to create beautiful buildings which balance affordability with aesthetics.
“Harris HMC was fantastic. We’re happy across the board with the outcome. They put an A-class team on this project: a great project manager, a great site manager, and great bricklayers. We had some innovative works to incorporate and their roof plumbing crew made it all happen.
Harris has built for us before, three times in the last five years, and they will certainly be on our list to tender for future projects.”
Rohan Waldie, Senior Architect Urban Designer, City of Monash
"We consider Harris HMC Construction's management and commitment throughout the construction phase of this $7.5 million Chelsea House Project as an integral part to the successful delivery of the project. Harris HMC's team members were at all times professional and proactive. They carried out their duties with a sense of urgency to ensure timely delivery of the project. Their non-adversarial approach in fostering a positive relationship with us with their subcontractors and the design team contributed in no small measure to the success of the project.
We have no hesitation to speak on their behalf and look forward to the opportunity to work with Harris HMC Construction again."
Tan Kim Boon, Development Manager, Collan Investment Limited
When Arthur Kennedy joined Stan Harris in business in 1983, the Harris HMC heritage was already two years old. It was a small enterprise with a big commitment to providing Melbourne maintenance and fitout clients with excellent service delivery. Arthur and Stan shared a vision for their company and set about achieving it, working hard and smart to grow their reputation and their portfolio of successful projects. The values of customer service, dedication and ownership were an important framework for that growth.
Harris Office Environments (now known as Harris HMC Interiors) commenced in 1986 and in 1988 Arthur and Stan added an Electrics division. In 1990 they secured a landmark $9 million project for BHP. Successful completion proved the business capability and saw it emerge as a one of Melbourneâs leading fit out contractors.
After Stan retired in 1992, Arthur continued to evolve the business, accommodating the expanding Harris HMC team in larger North Melbourne premises and incorporating a Construction division. Arthur and his management team led a steady and mindful expansion program, building a strong internal culture and investing in a solid financial base.
Today, Harris HMC continues to evolve, now under the leadership of Arthurâs son, Dale Kennedy, and a committed board of management. The Harris HMC group delivers in excess of $85 million in projects per annum and is represented by 90 staff.
Those same values that inspired Arthur and Stan almost three decades ago remain embedded in the culture and the work practices of Harris HMC: customer satisfaction, dedication, teamwork, learning, safety and ownership.
The steadiness of family tradition is balanced by the reality of competitive project delivery in a contemporary marketplace, creating strength and confidence for Harris HMC, its people and, most importantly, its clients.
