Fourth generation builders Michael and George Argyrou founded Hickory in 1991. Since then, the business has steadily evolved from a family owned company to one of Australia’s preeminent construction groups.
Hickory has forged a reputation as an innovative and dynamic company, developing patented construction systems to deliver projects faster, more sustainably and to a higher quality than any other building methodology allows.
As an integrated construction company with over 600 employees, Hickory provides its clients with turnkey “best for project” solutions. Hickory partner with our clients, subcontractors and suppliers to ensure customers receive the most effective and efficient solution to meet their goals.
Over the past 20 years, Hickory has delivered several billion dollars in projects.
Hickory Construction is recognised as a leader in the future of Australia’s multi-unit urban development, specialising in the creation of “vertical communities” that promote, engage and enrich community life. With over 600 of the industry’s most experienced and innovative construction designers, engineers, tradespeople and professional staff, Hickory Construction delivers an integrated design and construction solution.
Utilising the resources of our own specialist formwork, joinery, facades, crane logistics and manufacturing divisions make our projects run that much smoother for on time and on budget delivery.
In addition to a prolific conventional construction division, Hickory also delivers innovative, technological alternatives to the construction of high-rise construction projects using our patented prefabricated building systems.
Recognised as one of the world’s leading prefabricated construction specialists, Hickory uses their prefabricated structural technology to construct high quality, multi-unit developments up to 50% faster than traditional methods. As an experienced conventional builder, Hickory offers the added benefit of delivering their clients turn-key prefabricated construction projects from foundation to final completion.
Hickory’s prefabricated delivery methods have allowed them to erect Australia’s tallest prefabricated building in Melbourne, Victoria and through an ongoing commitment to continuous innovation they continue to invest in improving the way the industry builds.
The group is now using their prefabricated systems to expand into international markets, where the benefits of lower construction costs, shorter construction timeframes and higher sustainability are highly valued.
Hickory uses a patented new technology to prefabricate high quality, project specific, factory-finished bathrooms to fit any architectural design.
The off-site manufacture of complete bathroom pods removes multiple trades from a construction project’s critical path, reducing on-site contact points from up to a dozen trades to just one.
Using Hickory's Sync Bathroom Pods on a multi-unit project fast tracks the programme and provides the head-contractor with a lower cost, superior quality installation that produces less waste than traditional bathroom construction.
