Ben joined BLDD’s team in 2016 after four years of designing heavy industrial steel structures for an international corporation. He is looking forward to working within a smaller company close to where he grew up and is excited to work on projects that impact and improve the communities here in the Midwest.

Ben grew up playing baseball, and was fortunate to play at the collegiate level. Since leaving school, he has channeled his passion for baseball into training other young athletes and taking his baseball swing out on the golf course (with mixed results). Ben enjoys working with his hands, whether it’s a construction project or gardening. Ben and his wife enjoy spending time with family and friends. They are always up for a campfire or a baseball game (Go Cards!). When the weather allows, they like to hike and take their kayaks out on new adventures.
