Kim

from Chicago
"Mills designed, installed and now routinely updates my whole house sound system. When I was building my new house, I wanted to convert my traditional sound system to a practical, easy to use new technology. Mills showed me all my options and collaborated with my builder to integrate implementation with construction. The outcome was amazing and today, I can call my Mills experts anytime I have a question and they will help me. Expert and really nice people!"

From Architects and Designers

Thomas L Shafer AIA

Principal, Thomas Shafer Architects
“We work with Mills for three simple reasons”: Mills Custom Audio/Video is sensitive to the needs of our clients, to us and our designs, and to the interior finishes of our projects. They are particularly sensitive to the placement of architectural, electrical and other electronic devices to virtually eliminate wall and ceiling clutter. The bottom line, we are persnickety and they go out of their way to make sure their devices disappear and blend in for us. Mills Custom Audio/Video is easy to work with, not only during the design of the system,but during the Construction Phase, ensuring that orders are not only complete but that their equipment and devices have been well coordinated and properly installed. Mills Custom Audio/Video is never a hard sell; they don’t just push the fanciest and most expensive solutions at us. Their recommendations are project and client appropriate and always user friendly.”

Principal, von Weise Associates
"We have been working with Mills for over 17 years. We rely on them to understand the rapidly changing technology and media environment and help us incorporate it seamlessly into our highly detailed designs. They do a great job of helping our clients understand how audio visual components and household controls can work to maximize the enjoyment of their home. They also do a great job of implementing their designs, coordinating with the construction team and maintaining the system out the back end."

"I have worked with Mills Custom Audio/Video on two large projects over the past 2 years and have found them to be the best AV Designer/Contractor I have ever worked with. Their attention to the design and aesthetic of a space is refreshing from other contractors I have worked with in the past. In addition, they are always up to date on current technology and provide recommendations that bring a level of quality to their projects. In addition to their design sense, their level of service is top notch. They are always available to assist with client requests consistently meet all deadlines. I recommend them on all of my projects and know if they are selected, this aspect of the project will run smoothly and we will have a happy client at the end of the project."

From Builders

Prominent Chicago Builder

"When we were first introduced to Mills Custom on a project, we were very impressed with the professionalism not only in the finished product but in the journey to reach that goal. Mills communicated clearly and worked well with all the trades on site, and were very neat and clean throughout the process. We have since recommended them for our high end AV installations.”

This requires having an eye for detail, a refined level of craftsmanship and finally a capacity to innovate. Mills has long demonstrated themselves as one of the top integrators by their ability to bring all these elements into balance. You can count on their professional integrity and dedication to refinement and finish in everything they do.”
