In his capacity as a stone cutter Hutchison supervised the cut-stone work on Christ Church Cathedral in Montreal and the East Block Parliament Buildings in Ottawa. In 1863 Hutchison [set up a practice with] Henri Maurice Perrault (1828-1903), their most noteworthy project being the Montreal City Hall. From 1880 to 1890 Hutchison worked in partnership with Alexander Denton Steele (1841-90). Hutchison and Steele designed a wide variety of commercial, domestic, religious and educational buildings in Montreal, such as the Redpath Museum on the campus of McGill University.
