The HC&M Story - Today's Labour Solutions for Your Construction Project!

The HardenFast Construction & Maintenance (HC&M) management team has been around for quite a while. We are able to offer your project over 80 years of combined building experience in both domestic and commercial construction, and we understand the challenges and pressures involved in bringing a project in on-time and on-budget. We are members of the Master Builders Association and can provide a great range of services to any construction project.

HC&M is a family oriented construction service based on the NSW Central Coast with a mix of senior and junior personnel. We have several licensed builders, licensed supervisors and apprentices in our crew, as well as licensed "all-rounder" tradesmen and general labour resources to provide short and long term labour solutions to just about any project. Our guys all hold their own Occupational Health & Safety General Induction cards and are able to be compliant with all of your site specific OH&S requirements.
We can also provide our own comprehensive and approved OH&S system if and where required - complete with Site Inductions, Risk Identification and Assessment, Job Safety Analysis etc should this be of assistance to your site management. As pre-qualified contractors to the NSW Department of Commerce, our OH&S systems and practices have been examined and approved on many sites throughout NSW. We even have our own fully qualified Test & Tag facility for power tools and equipment as part of our in-house service offerings.

Whether you're an Owner-Builder undertaking a small extension to your cottage or a Commercial Builder in the midst of a large and complex project, HC&M can provide you with experienced and qualified labour solutions for every stage of the job. From full Project Management to Carpenter Teams and Traffic Control personnel, we can provide a reliable and responsive crew from Sydney to The Hunter and beyond. We can provide many references from our clients and associates in relation to our performance on projects both big and small, starting from Owner Builder renovations on a terrace house at Surry Hills to multi million dollar developments. Feel free to click on our links for Projects, More Projects and Friends & Links to view some of our history and experience.

We also offer a Finance solution for non owner-occupied construction projects via our associates. At rates only marginally higher than the banks, we can secure funding for your development at 70% of total end-value - subject of course to conditions and security requirements. Contact us to discuss your project and funding requirements. Once your development is completed, we can provide a Strata Management solution to manage the property via StrataFlex Pty Ltd, which is part of our construction services group. We specialise in providing a service from project inception, financing, and through construction and council approval to occupance of the residence/s and beyond, or for any specific element of the construction process. See our offered facilities via the Our Services tab.

The skills of our carpentry guys is unmatched. From complex cut-on-site architectural roof framing structures to creating hand finished detailed mouldings to match existing finishes in heritage buildings - we've done it all! Some of our previous construction projects have been featured in magazines and television articles, including the Australian House & Garden Yearbook and the Maggie Tabberer Home Show. We built the iconic landmark residence "The Breakers" at Kilcare Heights from start to finish - including the backless "horizon" pool. We also built the magnificent "Tumbarumba" pole house which dominates the McCarrs Creek valley at Church Point. Check out some work-in-progress photos and testimonials from the proud owners of these architectural triumphs, as well as other previous projects via the Projects, and even More Projects and the Friends & Links tabs. Go on.... have a look around!

These days we tend to concentrate more on contractual works for NSW Department of Commerce and providing labour and management solutions to larger commercial projects. We have built ongoing relationships with other high performance construction and development companies and are always looking for new associations and challenges. All projects will be considered for HC&M involvement, so feel free to contact us anytime for friendly and personal discussions in regard to your project requirements via the Contact Us link.
