Miro Construction is a family run business with myself ‘Robert Howdill’ as the role of Managing Director. On arrival in NZ in 2006, I joined Scope Projects as a Site Manager and quickly rose to Project Manager and managed a number of large construction and refurbishment projects.

Over the last 3 decades I have been in the construction industry working across education, commercial, hospitality, retail and residential sectors in the UK and now New Zealand. Since formation in 2009, MIRO has seen sustained growth through the GFC and now employs over 20 people and has increased it’s turnover from $1 million to $7 million.

Miro actively supports and advocates sustainable design and building and supports the work of the New Zealand Green Building Council. At Miro Construction we pride ourselves on an honest, straightforward and open approach to all our projects whether this is with our clients or our workforce everyone is treated with the utmost respect. We have a strong network of professional sub-contractors who adapt the same ethics as we do.

We operate an open-book system on negotiated projects ensuring that costs are controlled and quality is maintained.

Our mission statement is to provide the highest quality construction. To work within our client’s budget; to complete the works on time and provide excellent aftercare.
