It's fair to say that this year hasn't gone as anyone had originally planned, but I am incredibly grateful that there are plenty of reasons to be cheerful at Milestone Builders and there are a lot of successes to be proud of.
For me, the year started with time off to work on our project management software, Me and My Builder and this led to an exciting new business model for Milestone Builders, the Milestone Method.
Rather than isolating different skillsets, we believe that architects and builders can work together to produce outstanding results. Results that pair form and function without making your budget explode.
Our new process makes home renovation projects more simple and cost-effective for our clients. By managing the entire project from concept to completion there’s no added hassle or unexpected costs.
The feedback has been amazing, and we are excited to help more clients using the Milestone Method next year.
2020 has also seen us grow our team with a number of fantastic new team members. During the first lockdown, we hired Lynn, our Business Development Manager, who has helped to grow our business significantly in the short time she has been with us.
We have also employed a Health & Safety Consultant to bring all our paperwork and processes up to a standard that exceeds HSE standards and makes us safe and compliant.
In addition, we've partnered with talented architects to provide a full design and build service in house.
We've also hired a new buyer to help us ensure we get the best rates for our project materials to further increase the savings we can offer our clients.
We've got a fantastic, talented team behind us to work on all our future projects.
This year we've also launched our new website and updated our logo. We've had lots of great feedback, especially about our new company video... check it out!
It's not all about work and I am grateful for the time I was also able to enjoy with my family over lockdown. And with my new found passion for gardening, in 2020 I also grew more vegetables than I knew what to do with; now that's an achievement!
As we look ahead to 2021 I personally want to thank all our customers, staff and partners. We are truly grateful for your support and look forward to what 2021 will bring.
