Ben knows that construction doesn’t always get the recognition it deserves, and he is eager to change that. That is why in his role as a Consultant at Invennt, he is working to unlock value in operations, implement sustainable improvements and deliver future growth for an industry he believes is the bedrock of the economy and society.
Throughout his career, Ben has developed and implemented procurement strategies for large scale infrastructure clients, main contractors and SMEs; embedding collaboration and innovation in their corporate culture leaving a lasting positive impact.
Ben’s desire to see the construction industry improve has previously led to an appointment on the Constructing Excellence Board of Management as co-chair for Generation 4 Change. In this capacity he has spearheaded a number of initiatives aimed at improving the industry’s image and the adoption of technology. In this vein, he is also the current co-chair of the Procurement and Nuclear Theme Group.
A big advocate for collaborative working and all things digital, Ben believes that getting a project right from the start is crucial to its success. The decisions made in how a project is procured can be so important to its success and are so often overlooked or not appreciated properly for the value that it can bring.
