Building runs in the veins of Colmac Homes founder, Jason McMillan, with his grandfather, several uncles and cousins all industry-qualified and highly experienced.
It would seem almost inevitable then, that one day Colmac Homes would take shape. Family owned and run, Colmac Homes was eventually founded by Jason and his grandfather. His cousin, Brad Coleman stepped up as Co-Director upon their grandfather’s retirement seven years ago.
A strong team committed to quality and service
“Our team is one of Colmac Homes’ greatest assets,” says Jason.
“We are a dynamic and cohesive group who work together to achieve the best possible results for our clients. Each member of our team, whether family or staff, look out for each other to oversee the smooth running of all of our projects.”
Colmac Homes are uniquely positioned to deliver high quality results from the initial design phase right up to the moment their clients walk through the door. An expert team of draftspeople means customised building design is no challenge – in fact it is encouraged. Meanwhile, a colour selection centre works with clients to consider the right colour palette to match furnishings, fittings and overall home design.
“Building is something we love to do and we have done it for a long time,” says Jason.
“For most people, building a home will be one of the largest financial outlays they make in their lifetime. This means the process can be fuelled by both emotion and high expectations. At Colmac Homes we have developed an integrated process to reduce the pressure and help our clients build their ideal property.”
The Dahlsens factor
With more than 15 years of industry experience, Jason understands the importance of building strong connections with high quality suppliers.
“Good communication, timely delivery and reliable product quality are essential to our business success,” explains Jason.
“Our long-standing relationships with suppliers such as Dahlsens are crucial, especially if we run into any unexpected challenges during a build. These relationships enable our team to deliver an exceptional finished product by the expected deadline.”
Colmac Home’s core business remains strong in the East Gippsland area of rural Victoria, with the majority of their builds taking place between Lakes Entrance to Trafalgar. The tight-knit team at Colmac Homes works to a schedule of 14 to 18 weeks per build with a little more on the ends for their larger projects.
“We aim to go above and beyond our client expectations every time. At Colmac Homes the rare and personal touch of having both Co-Directors on-site at each project is definitely something that sets our service apart,” says Jason.
“I have been doing this job for a long time and, although it may sometimes be a challenge to navigate such a variety of personalities and expectations, it is very rewarding when clients appreciate the final result.”
