Meet Hurst

Hurst is a total capability construction and business transformation company. We create, construct, refurbish and re-develop across the commercial office and retail sectors, hospitality and restaurants, retirement and childcare establishments, and automotive and service stations.

The Hurst team has deep roots in the construction industry. Our multi-generational expertise is what gives us our unique mix of capability, experience and innovation. We know what’s been done, how it’s done, and we have a clear vision of what is possible.

Scott Hurst

Chief Executive Officer

Scott is a third generation construction industry native. Building is in his blood. So is competition. In 2011 he took the reins of Hurst and narrowed its focus to maximising clients’ competitive advantage. It paid off. In seven years Hurst revenues have grown by multiples and the client roster is filled with blue chips. Success has come by never losing sight of the basics — delivering on time and on budget. And by leveraging Hurst’s total capabilities from pre-tender to post-construction.

“The closer we work together, the greater the outcome.”
