McMillan Builders was founded in 2008 by industry veteran Michael McMillan, whose 20-year construction career is proven, having built many of Charlotte’s unique luxury homes and renovations, as well as specialized light commercial facilities.
An entrepreneur from an early age, McMillan excelled at finding ways to do things differently or “optimally,” a word he uses often. McMillan Builders found its early success and niche by creating more engaging client relationships and a seamless way of doing business using a “system” approach in which the project is viewed as a whole. As a result, the McMillan business model has become a welcomed partnership for clients, one solidly built on mutual trust and understanding, while implementing best practices and fiscal accountability.
Building one-of-a-kind homes, McMillan Builders partners with clients for “forever” homes, a goal that requires an extraordinary level of trust. Only the best available and most reliable design, construction and allied-trade talent are contracted. The end result is a pricing model for clients that is cost-effective and protective of the client’s budget and financing requirements.
Prior to forming McMillan Builders, Michael served as construction manager for a nationally recognized homebuilding and development firm in Charlotte. He was responsible for building many of Charlotte’s most recognized model showhomes and HomeArama tour homes within premier luxury communities that include The Point on Lake Norman, heritage neighborhoods in Meyers Park and gated new home communities in South Charlotte and Ballantyne area.
Beginning in 2004, Michael McMillan successfully pioneered the construction of The Point on Lake Norman’s first ENERGY STAR® rated custom homes; and since that time, he has become a recognized leader in building both homes and workplaces that are more healthy and energy-focused. In that time McMillan Builders has partnered with Scientific Environmental Design to deliver the highest level of sustainable planning in home HVAC design. His personal portfolio of eco-project certifications are extensive and have involved America’s Best Green Building programs, including LEED certified, EarthCraft House, Environments for Living and the National Association of HomeBuilders’ Green Building.
