Ben joined KSS in 2017. Ben has earned his bachelor's degree in civil engineering from the University of Notre Dame and his master's degree in civil engineering with a concentration in structural design from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Ben has been working as a licensed Professional Engineer since 2015. He is an NCEES Model Law Engineer, licensed to practice in California, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania. Highlights of some of his completed and in-construction projects since joining KSS include: The Highline, which involved converting the former Terminal Building, a 860,000 sf, 6-story, cargo warehouse on Pittsburgh's South Side into creative chic office/retail; the Refinery, a structurally complex project which involved converting two existing side-by-side warehouse buildings located in Pittsburgh's historic Strip District into a 30-unit condominium building by adding 4 stories on top of an existing 2-story masonry structure and by adding 1 story to an existing 5-story concrete framed structure; and 2554 Smallman Street Condominiums, a new steel-framed residential construction project also located in the Strip District which contained some interesting foundation challenges from being shoe-horned into a small site surrounded by existing buildings. Before joining KSS, Ben worked for close to five years for a major structural engineering firm in Boston, MA: McNamara·Salvia Structural Engineers. Two interesting projects of his career working there include the University of Massachusetts - Boston Student Housing Facility - a 1,045 bed dormitory and student space facility consisting of a 12-story building and a 9-story building. The buildings consist of steel framed superstructure with concrete lateral cores supported by precast concrete piles and MIT Kendall Square Building at Site N, a 14-story high rise mixed use commercial/lab facility that included 10 stories of cantilevered building.

In his free time, Ben enjoys searching for geocaches and playing his clarinet.
