What makes Milestone Builders, Milestone Builders.
We know how scary it can be to put all your trust in others to do the right thing. Our founder, Michael Brett, is an advocate for change in the Domestic Construction Industry. Change that empowers everyday people with the confidence to build a home based on their dreams.
As an experienced builder, Michael was set on creating a company built on trust, where clients feel secure and in safe hands. With this vision, Milestone Builders was born. As Milestone blossomed, the company mission became ‘to build lasting relationships, strong principles and beautiful homes.’ A mission that we are proud to carry with us on our Milestone Journey today.
"We want to create something that you stand back and look at in five or ten years time and say, wow, this is ours."
- MICHAEL BRETT
MEET THE MILESTONE TEAM
A time served joiner with over 20 years’ experience creating dream homes. I have a passion for building, sustainability, and lifestyle design. I believe how we live affects our happiness and well-being, which is why we put so much into every project. Ultimately, our aim is to make lives better through building. Husband, Father, Builder.
With a successful portfolio in construction of over 15 years, I am an ambitious professional who is a firm believer that doing the right thing has power. I feel it’s my job every day to make each aspect of the customer experience better and it’s my aspiration to play a big role in creating dream homes for our clients. I believe employee engagement is essential for creating a dynamic, resilient workplace and one of the reasons my focus surrounds setting clear goals, encouraging positive teamwork, development, recognition and feedback. As an integrator, I thrive at putting systems and processes in place, effectively executing plans, and turning ideas into reality.
I have been in the Building Industry for 15 years. I am very passionate about all of the projects I am involved in, and the aspect of improving the lives of our clients. A big part of my job at Milestone is interacting with our clients, which I really enjoy. The best part of my role at Milestone is having the freedom to make choices that benefit our clients and ourselves.
I studied internationally before starting my career in Construction. Over the past 10 years, I have gained extensive knowledge in managing and coordinating projects on small and large scales. I have worked on projects with the UK’s Top 10 Developers in the Construction Industry, and up-and-coming architects, engineers and business owners. I am a strong believer in the power of building and sustaining strong relationships with our Milestone clients, suppliers and subcontractors.
Marketing & Creative Concepts Manager
In 2014 I took a break from pursuing my Performing Arts Career and landed an opportunity as a Marketing Apprentice in the Education Sector. I went on to work for the UK’s Leading Manufacturers in the Swimming Pool and Cleaning Industry, advancing on to roles in Branding, Advertising, Graphics, Photography, Videography, Animation, and Web Design. One of the biggest luxuries for me is photographing and filming our Milestone clients in their new, beautiful, dream homes.
With 25 years of experience in the Construction Industry, I started my career as a Bricklayer by trade and went on to graduate with a BSc (Hons) Degree in Construction Management. At Milestone Builders it is my responsibility to ensure clients are satisfied with their build, and all is compliant with our Milestone Standards and relevant legislations’.
For over 20 years we have been helping families build and create their beautiful, forever homes. Baby rooms to guest rooms, family kitchens to cinema conversions. We understand the true importance of making a house, a home. At Milestone Builders we ask you to imagine your future space and leave all the hard work to our experts.
