Mausoleum Construction

Mausoleum construction experts

To date, Harris HMC have delivered just under 2,000 crypts over 6 projects.

We have found that our staff working in these environments need to be dynamic and respectful of the live cemetery, which includes protection of all existing conditions and assisting mourners in clear access for visitation.

Working in a live cemetery environment

Harris HMC have worked in many live environments, delivering cemetery projects for over 15 years at the Werribee Community Cemetery, Fawkner Memorial Park, Melbourne Greater Cemetery and Lilydale Memorial Park.

We have a proven track record of working closely with existing staff in these live environments, and have been proactive in managing our sites within the site specific rules which may include temporary works stoppage if any services may occur during the construction phase.

Delivering flexibility

Harris HMC have on two occasions provided the ability for interments to happen before construction was completed which was taken up on one occasion. Importantly at this time we worked closely with the family to ensure all of their expectations were met including on the day of the interment, the access to the site and visitation during the completion of the construction stage which ordinarily is not allowed for general public.

We are passionate about building mausoleums and other works within cemeteries and feel that our experience and expertise will assist in any phase of your required works from Masterplanning, design, Construction and Maintenance.

We are familiar with different construction techniques, methodologies and all of the specialised and unique finishes and fitments used in the cemetery environment and are able to provide our clients with case studies and buildability exercises to assist in their timely decision making process.

We implement a stringent quality management regime which include in particular the interior finishes to the crypts, venting and drainage in addition to a sample and quality control program.

"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."
"Harris HMC accepted this work on short notice … a series of fast-tracked jobs with extremely tight timeframes. They communicated well, called regular meetings, raised and resolved any issues quickly and got on with the work. The Harris team worked in really well with our other contractors and consultants on often crowded sites. We’re very happy with the workmanship and results … they turned out a gem."

"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."
"Communication, planning, scheduling, organisation and a positive and cheerful ‘can-do’ attitude were key demonstrated qualities in getting the job over the line…When most were thinking that is couldn’t be done, Glen (Harris HMC Project Manager) had every confidence that it could. There was an excellent site team. All contractors and subbies showed the respect to Glen and his site foremen and went the extra mile."
"Thank you very much, you have been a delight to work with, your professionalism and ethic have made this job run very smoothly on schedule and on budget.
Your level of communication to us was exemplary.

"Harris HMC provided great suggestions for our latest manager office build and completed works from our last office build that had been outstanding for some time. Their communication with us throughout the works has been exceptional... kept us informed of everything they were planning and doing, which contractors would be onsite and when, ensured the work area was clean in between works, paid attention to detail, reliable and very accommodating... nothing was too much trouble and all completed in great time…providing an exemplary service on all levels."
"Harris HMC are a wonderful organisation to work with. They go out of their way to provide a professional, organised, supportive and consultative environment in which to operate and it pays off! We have used Harris across a range of projects including building construction and undertaking building condition audits and they have been amazing. They spend the time to understand the organisation and how it works and this has been so beneficial for the projects we have undertaken. I am delighted to provide this testimonial as they are a pleasure to work with."
