Queensland-based construction company Hutchinson Builders and developer Consolidated Properties have joined forces to lay a strong foundation under rugby’s QR Queensland Reds.

The two companies signed up for six figure sponsorships deals to help fund the Reds’ Ballymore gymnasium.

Executives from the two companies are accompanying the Reds on their pre-season visit to Japan, where the Reds will play the national side this Friday, November 10 in the Tokyo National Stadium.

The sponsorship is particularly timely for Hutchinson Builders which recently announced plans to develop two prestige apartment projects in Japan‘s emerging alpine sports capital of Niseko.

‘This sponsorship is a great fit for us, because we love our rugby and Japan is likely to figure more in both our own and the Reds’ futures,’ said Hutchinson chairman Scott Hutchinson.

‘Reds coach Eddie Jones has close links with Japan as we all know, and this week’s visit by the Reds is likely to be just the start of a greater interaction between the Queensland and Japan rugby unions,’ Mr Hutchinson said.

‘For our part, Hutchinson Builders is focusing a lot of attention on our new apartment projects in Niseko, which in recent years has become one of the world’s premier new powderskiing and adventure sports destinations.’

Hutchinsons will develop the projects, worth a combined A$35 million, on two prime sites ‘ one of them ski-in-ski-out ‘ in the heart of Niseko’s upper village, with apartment sales to commence before Christmas.

‘I think Niseko has the potential to be Asia’s number one ski destination, with real appeal for Australians as well as Asia’s booming new middle-class and its fast-growing population of snowsports enthusiasts just a few hours flying time away in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Taipei,’ Mr Hutchinson said.

‘And the Reds definitely have the potential to be Australia‘s number one rugby province again, with Eddie Jones in charge and some exciting young players coming through the ranks.’
