Commercial Builders for Efficient, Cost-Effective Design and Construct Projects

Harris HMC is a Melbourne based construction company. As expert commercial builders we bring experience, know-how and a fresh approach to your project. We’ll work with your consultant team to bring your D&C project to life.

Design Management

The most successful construction projects take advantage of early involvement by a commercial builder. Harris HMC is a construction company that is prepared to work with you and your team during the design stage. This input results in savings to the project, through time and cost of construction.

The Harris HMC team will analyse the project for cost savings (value management), placing strong focus on retaining design intent. This analysis includes:

  • Assessing build-ability
  • Planning site specific construction methodology
  • Suggesting construction engineering techniques
  • Review of services, design and coordination
  • Review of structural design
  • Review of materials and component selection
  • Review of interior and façade design

During the review of design documentation, our team will develop an aggressive construction program which assists in staging, and forms the basis of the developed construction program.

Our involvement in the design stage means we’re on the front foot with Protection Works notices, Council Management Plans, and Building Permit documentation, translating into a shorter mobilisation period.


Through appointing Harris HMC through the design process, savings in the order of 10-20% of build cost are often achieved, not to mention increased speed of construction. We’re here to help, and drive your project through concept to completion.

Evidence? Here is a client testimonial from our recent client Toby Rotstein, a Melbourne Developer.

"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.

"Harris HMC accepted this work on short notice … a series of fast-tracked jobs with extremely tight timeframes.

"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."

"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."
