Founded in 2007, MRB has a 20-strong team predominantly based in Wetherby, delivering building services design and environmental engineering consultancy services.
The acquisition strengthens both Hydrock’s energy and sustainability offering in the built environment and existing UK office network by adding a base in Yorkshire.
Dr Brian McConnell, Hydrock’s CEO, said: “This is a great strategic move for both Hydrock and MRB. It provides us with a base in a key geographic location giving access to the strong property development market in and around Leeds and across Yorkshire.
“It also enables MRB to realise their growth plan which is fuelled by the strong relationships they have established over the past 12 years with a high calibre set of clients.”
Led by John McElwee, MRB will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Hydrock trading under the name of Hydrock MRB as a separate operating division for the foreseeable future.
Offering MEP, BREEAM and energy and sustainability services, MRB’s sector experience predominantly covers the commercial offices, hotels, leisure, retail and logistics sectors, as well as an established portfolio of clients in the social care sector.
