About Eco Builders MK
Eco Builders MK is a local building firm operating in the Milton Keynes and Buckinghamshire area. We are a small business that’s hardworking, conscientious and diligent with a personal touch.
Vic has been building houses and extensions for 50 years. In fact, take a drive around Milton Keynes and you are sure to pass by at least one of the properties he is responsible for building. Vic took a break from house building in the nineties to launch an energy assessment company that was favored by the Government, followed by a housing technology software service which is now used by more than 40 UK-wide housing associations. Both of these businesses continue to thrive and are still owned by Vic; adding to his wealth of industry experience in the housing market. But his love of building work shows no signs of waning and Eco Builders MK is the culmination of half a century of hard work, passion and dedication.
Lionel and Vic are lifelong friends who share a common passion for house design and development. But whereas Vic builds them, Lionel specialises in planning and design. He’s our ideas man. And again, Lionel has also had a huge influence over the style and build of Milton Keynes’ urban landscape when, thirty years ago, Lionel worked as an apprentice for a firm of architects who were instrumental in the development of the city. He then moved to the Planning Department of Milton Keynes Council, learning the ins and outs of planning and building regulations, and most recently honed his drawing skills working as a project manager for local conservatory company. Lionel is incredibly experienced in looking after a client’s needs and understanding their requirements. Lionel will be your day to day contact as we work together through your conservatory, orangery or extension build. We pride ourselves on his polite, honest and friendly approach.
As Vic’s son, Paul was destined to join the housing industry. After starting life as a Carpenter and Joiner he now specialises in the energy sector. In fact, Paul has energy industry qualifications coming out of his ears. He is a Domestic Energy Assessor qualified to perform Standard Assessment Procedures (SAPs) which compare the energy and environmental performance of a building. This is not only to ensure it meets Building Regulations, but in the case of Eco Builders MK, we like Paul to help us exceed these requirements where possible. Considering the future and the environment all around us. Paul is also a CAA credited drone pilot, qualified in the use of thermal imaging cameras.
Helen is Paul’s wife and the keeper of accounts. Helen has an extensive background in organisation, project management and budgeting. She loves an Excel spreadsheet. She most recently worked as the Executive Assistant to the Chief Executive of Oxfam GB, where she has spent 19 years working in the not for profit sector looking after four different Chief Execs. Helen is here to ensure your project stays on budget and you aren’t hit with any nasty financial surprises.
Vicki is the most recent addition to our team and is Lionel’s right hand woman in business and life. Between them they have three grown up children and have lived in the local area all their lives. Vicki’s background is in retail and catering giving her some excellent customer service experience. She brings her organisational and planning skills to Eco Builders where she manages our building schedule and all things administrative behind the scenes. Keeping Lionel on his toes in the office, at the building site and back at home!
Vic and Lionel have mastered the process of house building and home improvements. Between them they have worked across planning, design, building, energy assessment, building regulations and site management. And now you can benefit from this experience in the transformation of your home. We work with you every step of the way from ideas and planning, through to construction with a personal, friendly touch.

Where we work…
Both Vic and Lionel have grown up, lived and worked in Milton Keynes their whole lives. We love the area for its diversity, vibrancy and community. But if you’re not based near CMK (Central Milton Keynes) itself, that’s no problem. Our complete building service extends to the areas of Towcester, Brackley, Stoney Stratford and Buckingham
And we love to visit and work in the smaller towns and villages in between, including Potterspury, Leverstock Green, Worburn Sands and Willen.
