About image

Born in Scotland and raised in England, Lee comes from a long lineage of carpenters with his uncles and grandad operating a family building and carpentry business in his native homeland. Continuing the vocation into a third generation of Davidson carpentry, Lee began his apprenticeship as a joiner at age 16 before transitioning to site carpentry. Arriving in Australia in 2014 seeking work experience and adventure, Lee found work in Sydney and Brisbane before settling down in Melbourne. Since co-founding the company in 2016 with Neil, Lee’s primary area of focus at Milne Davidson Projects is to oversee the tender and project acquisition phase.


Having trained and attained his carpentry and joinery qualification in Scotland, Neil arrived in Australia at age 20. Venturing into regional Australia, he gained invaluable experience in various site foreman roles working on housing developments in indigenous communities in the Northern Territory. He then moved onto large scale infrastructure projects in regional Western Australia before relocating to Melbourne in 2014. Co-founding the business with Lee in 2016, Neil’s leadership at Milne Davidson Projects involves overseeing the live projects including managing the entire construction process through to the successful handover at the completion of the project.
