“Scott McMillan’s work was always to an extremely high standard, befitting a craftsman of his skill, training and integrity. Indeed his commitment to maintaining traditional methods and applying those to restoration work is exemplary. It is heartening to know that craftsmen such as Mr McMillan – although very rare – still exist. We recommend him most highly.”

“Scott’s workmanship is excellent, his considerable training and experience in traditional plastering is demonstrated to be of a high standard. I am aware of several heritage projects in Queensland where Scott’s high level skills are exemplified. I often recommend Scott to my clients for specialist plastering work. Scott is aware of the Burra Charter processes and protocols.”

– Jacqueline Pearce, Heritage Architect

“Scott McMillan was a pleasure to deal with. He came out to quote on our job and spent a good deal of time assessing what was required and discussing this with us. He was flexible with timeframes and was very prompt to organise appointments based around our busy schedules.

Scott’s craftsmanship was first rate in repairing our older fibrous plaster hallway ceiling with intricate decorative cornices.

I wouldn’t hesitate hiring Scott again for further works or in recommending him to other potential clients.”

– Michael Vidot, Hendra
