MCM Garners Two Silver Awards in Debut
Charlotte, N.C. – McMillan Construction Management (MCM) recently captured two silver awards during the Charlotte Home Builders Association’s 22nd annual Excellence in Remodeling Awards. This was a stunning debut for the firm, which is quickly becoming known for its detailed execution of creative designs.
“We are honored to have received these awards,” noted MCM Owner Michael J. McMillan Sr. “It was particularly rewarding to have been recognized in both categories we entered in what was our inaugural appearance in this competition. We were up against many of the finest firms in Charlotte. To have been honored to this extent is a reflection of the dedication, creativity and craftsmanship of our team.”
MCM garnered silver awards in two categories: Addition from $260,000 to $400,000 and General Renovation from $160,000 to $240,000.
The addition managed to artfully marry a contemporary living space to a 1940’s brick bungalow in Chantilly. The addition preserved the home’s front elevation, and hence the neighborhood’s traditional streetscape. The delightful surprise of a 1,000-square-foot contemporary addition crafted from Green Glazed Brick and featuring a cantilevered rear porch is just barely visible from the street. A white EPDM insulated flat roof and storefront anodized windows add to the space’s modern look. The design allowed for the addition of two bedrooms, a full bath, utility room and a graciously sized and colorful playroom complete with extensive built-in shelving to lift toys and games up off the floor. The addition incorporated the sustainable, durable and environmentally friendly building practices and design elements for which MCM is known.
The Interior Renovation project consisted of updating the appearance and functionality of a home with “good bones” for a growing family. Unnecessary hallway space was eliminated, the master bath and closet were reconfigured, a powder room was upfit, a study with pocket doors was created, and the kitchen was updated to include an AGA stove, butcher block top and a space-saving children’s swing-up table. Universal design features like expanded door frames, a graciously sized walk-in shower, custom lighting design and access-friendly faucets ensure this project will function well for years to come.
“Understanding the building sciences and ‘the home as a system’ approach has been a focus of mine for over 10 years,” McMillan says. “It is particularly gratifying for me to see our projects that incorporate this approach honored in this manner.”
