Ben Bennett

Building Control Surveyor

My work background:

I started work as a Trainee Building Surveyor for a Property Developer prior to spending a few years working as a Building Control Surveyor for an Approved Contractor. I then worked as Project Manager for a Design and Build company based in North West London prior to joining the Cook Brown team.

About my role:

As one of the Surveyors within the London team, I am responsible for providing an excellent service to all my appointed clients and assisting them to achieve compliance in a positive and collaborative way. My role involves undertaking Plan Assessments, Site Inspections and offering Technical Advice throughout the life cycle of a project. From my background as a Building Contractor and working with various Building Control Inspectors, I found that apart from their technical knowledge, the attributes of diligence, responsiveness, pragmatism and honesty were key and these are values I try to uphold in my current role.

About me:

Outside of work, my time is mostly spent with my partner and daughter. We have recently acquired an allotment, so we are currently spending a lot of time down there in a fierce and bloody battle with weeds, moles, and slugs.

Random facts:

My Dad is a Builder and my Mum owned an Estate Agency whilst I was growing up. I spent a lot of my adolescence ‘earning my keep’ by working with both and receiving an early education in Property and Construction. Some might say a misspent youth!
