Meet The Team

Darren Howard

The founder of Mbloc, Darren has over 40 years experience in construction. Approximately 10 years ago he decided he wanted to pursue alternative, innovative sustainable building techniques. This led him to set up Mbloc in 2016 with the vision of pursuing modular building techniques which were forward thinking, embracing minimising the impact on the environment. He is committed to developing his modular building company, integrating as many environmentally friendly technologies as possible and eliminating techniques proven to be detrimental to the environment, enabling the company to surpass net zero targets and remain a company for the future.

Becky Howard

Having graduated from University with a first class Bachelor of Science (Hons) Degree in Quantity Surveying back in 2016, Bex has been a part of Mbloc from the very beginning. With detailed involvement in all projects over the years since establishment, a wide range of her knowledge and expertise has been enhanced over time leading her to have a more Project Managerial role alongside her Quantity Surveying day to day role. Additionally to this, when a new project arises Bex has the ability to be involved from the very beginning and seeing the project through to completion, this includes involvement with the design and pre-construction phases, followed by the procurement stage where value engineering can be implemented and competitive tender costs produced, before overseeing the construction from the beginning through to completion and post-construction.
