About

MILBURN Demolition started in 2014 when James Milburn thought demolition didn’t have to be unsafe, dirty, or old-school.

James fell in love with demolition while in college and went to work in the industry after earning his degree. What he learned was that the world of demolition was an aging dinosaur. He thought he could do better himself, and thanks to his wife’s support, he took the leap to start his own company.

Thanks to his small retirement savings and a loan from his parents to make payroll, MILBURN opened its doors and quickly found more work than James himself and his small team could handle. Since he was best suited for estimating and running the business itself, he needed an experienced demolition expert to manage field operations.

That’s when Don Collier, now MILBURN’s Director of Field Operations, came into the picture. Using his three decades of demolition experience, Don’s led and grew the field side of the business dramatically over the past few years.

Today, MILBURN’s expertise is anything complicated and out of the ordinary. They love odd jobs like removing fire escapes, vault removals, or cutting openings for stairwells. They pride themselves on doing things differently by treating safety as their top priority, using the latest technology and equipment, and genuinely caring for their people. The best part is they’re just getting started.
