MCL Constructions - An award winning business

"MCL Constructions are a boutique builder targeting clients looking for quality craftsmanship and individuality in their new home. They have a radical approach to customer service in the building industry."

This overview introduced MCL Constructions at the 2007 Whitehorse Business Group Excellence in Business Awards where they were judged "The Best Small Business. "

MCL Constructions is a builder and project developer whose clients are mostly families and homeowners looking for a professional, friendly, honest and reliable builder to create a new residence or add an extension to their existing home.

Excellence from the start

CEO Campbell McLennan established MCL in 1994. He is an award-winning carpenter who demands the highest quality craftsmanship. “We know that in order to succeed, you must surround yourself with the right talent, be that employees, sub-contractors or business advisers.” Quality workmanship has become the hallmark of the business that has prospered. They have very loyal clients who generate significant referrals for new work. “We look to create open, loyal and long-lasting relationships with our clients. They trust us to deliver on our commitments. Meeting the needs of every client is critical to our on-going and future success. We create beautiful homes and extensions that enable people to live in their dream environment. We place great value on our good reputation for credibility, quality workmanship and integrity”.

mclA point of difference

MCL maintains significant annual growth in an industry where success and respect need to be earned. Campbell attributes this to their approach and core values. “We consult with our clients and of course with the architects. We ensure that our clients’ needs are met first and foremost. All of our projects are unique and purpose built. We endeavour to maintain clear communication throughout all phases of the project.”

To highlight their difference, Campbell demands high standards at the construction site. He places a ban on all swearing and loud music. He does not allow dogs or smoking and is proud to say that the client’s home site is cleared regularly to avoid the look of a disaster area!

Saward Dawson and MCL

Saward Dawson’s relationship with MCL extends back to the mid 1990s. We have seen Campbell’s business develop and flourish into the professional, quality organisation it is today. Saward Dawson has advised Campbell on many aspects of running a growing business. We helped with business restructuring which maximises tax effectiveness, adds greater flexibility for remuneration and salary packaging, increases the level of asset protection and implements effective risk management.

Saward Dawson continues to advise MCL on business and personal tax matters, salary packaging and other general business services. We also provide assistance with accounting software and are continually planning to ensure the most beneficial tax and business outcomes.

Craftsmen not tradesmen

To describe MCL as builders is clearly an understatement; they consider themselves as craftsmen. They manage all aspects of the project including interior decoration, colour selection and landscaping. They even offer an extended 12 month maintenance guarantee on minor repairs. Client satisfaction is paramount.

Their catch-phrase is “We create a home you’ll love coming home to.” Visit www.mclconstructions.com.au to discover how.
