Our mission at Milara Building and Development "MBD" is to constantly challenge the benchmark of quality custom home delivery in Melbourne's east. We have the goal of setting industry standards of service and workmanship. We aim to positively impact how the building process is perceived by our clients by making the journey as informative, enjoyable and hassle-free as possible when we Design. Build.
