At Harris HMC Interiors we partner with exceptional clients to create exceptional environments. Together we build and develop interior spaces that are functionally satisfying, visually exciting and commercially lucrative.
We provide interior fit-out and refurbishment solutions for the Commercial, Education, Health, Government, and Hospitality sectors.
We meet the challenges of complex specifications, tight deadlines, and occupied spaces to deliver outstanding environments for our clients.
Our expertise in projects with environmentally sustainable, heritage, and technology-focused components, has built us a reputation for delivering the ‘impossible’ projects.
Limited Access, Limited Time
We specialise in delivering ‘impossible’ projects.
From replacing 4 tonnes of steel for an escalator in the busy CBD Bourke Street Mall to a $3.5m 6,000m2 fit-out delivered in 23 working days, we are skilled at delivering the solutions our client’s want, when they want it.
For some of our clients, undertaking a fit-out is an affordable solution to the significant costs of relocation.
We work with you to understand your needs and deliver exceptional results on time and on budget; allowing you to update your existing premises to suit your evolving needs.
"Communication was great and we’re very pleased with the quality work provided by the Harris HMC team. What impressed us most was their ability to deliver before-time on a tight program. We were so satisfied, we already have them working with us on an additional two jobs.”
Bob Douglas, Project Manager, Skilled Group
“Harris HMC were fully engaged and took ownership along with me of the project from day one…they took not just the vision but also the budget to heart and were excellent at coming up with solutions that were both aesthetically and financially successful. Their sourcing of the external louvre product was brilliant…always working very closely with me to share and achieve the vision.”

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.
