Here at MBA we love what we do, for us, it’s not just a job.


At MBA we have a simple ideology about what we do

Innovate, but thoroughly review the technology

Always innovate but don’t over complicate. It’s too easy for M&E Consultants to specify equipment and installation methods for projects, without fully interrogating the pros and cons for the client.

We aim to ensure that the services specified are suitable for the application, making sure that capital and revenue costs are minimised.

Don’t over complicate

We strive to ensure that the final solutions are suitable for the application, without jeopardising capital cost for poor revenue cost.

We will always aim to ensure that the client has an informed decision making process, based on hard facts.

Keep it simple

Make the final solution simple for the end user. Ensure that maintenance is straight forward and uncomplicated.

All of our staff have at some stage in their career spent time in the contracting industry.

The key benefits to this are not only our technical ability to design, but also the practical skills when the installation is in progress.

Economical design solutions

Economical Design Solutions are a goal we aim for on all our projects, this is borne out of our design philosophy.

Innovate, but thoroughly review the technologies available

There is a time and place for everything, never a single source solution, we analyse and assess the design solutions that are appropriate for the installations in order to achieve the end game solution. 

Don’t over complicate

We never over complicate system design intent, there are too many buildings in operation that have features of the system that are often either not used or underutilised, we ask one question to ourselves in the design process, is it a ‘Need’ or a ‘Want’. 

Keep it Simple

If you eliminate the ‘Wants’ or at least demonstrate that the wants aren’t needed then this can only lead to a simple installation, reducing both capital cost and revenue costs through simplified maintenance and FM over the life expectancy of the building.
