Ben’s attraction to the construction industry started at a young age when his father, a cabinet/furniture maker, introduced him to the fine craft of building. Although he sanded and primed doors as a teenager, Ben turned his attention to teaching English for several years before he dove into the A/E/C world and earned his degree in Civil Engineering. Ben’s drawn to the team environment that comes with the industry. This might stem from the fact that he’s part of a large family: eldest of five siblings and one of 29 grandchildren [and that’s only on his father’s side!].
