Our Journey

Mr. Bell, a decorated Army veteran and seasoned construction consultant, laid the foundation of MSB Construction Consultant in April 2022, marking the beginning of an unwavering commitment to excellence. Our inception was propelled by Mr. Bell’s vision to provide unparalleled construction consultancy, forged by his 22 years of diligent service with the United States Army Reserves and more than 20 years in construction and consulting.

Our Legacy

Mr. Bell’s commendable service record reflects a lifetime of commitment to quality and innovation. His tenure as a NATO Engineering Officer with the Army Reserves took him across the globe, contributing to the US Military’s infrastructure and engineering construction projects in capacities that ranged from base master planning to project management and construction inspections. A tour of duty in Afghanistan under Operation Enduring Freedom added to his rich repertoire of experience.

His career trajectory spans a multitude of large-scale construction projects, including hospitals, commercial high-rises, university facilities, and underground utilities. His tenure with the City of Dallas as a Sr. Plans Examiner, Sr. Building/Code Inspector, and Sr. Green Building Inspector demonstrates his unyielding commitment to green initiatives and foresight in advancing sustainable building practices.

Bell Construction Consultant is fueled by a mission to represent construction firm owners and guide them through every stage of their projects. With years of experience and an unwavering commitment to excellence, we are here to lead, guide, and represent you.
