Ben Smith

Construction Coordinator

Ben’s career path in construction started with the Department of Natural Resources, where he was involved in a variety of project types, from large roofing jobs to changing the topography of a river bed. Enjoying the fact that no day was ever the same, Ben “quickly became accustomed to the construction and engineering environment and thoroughly enjoyed building great working relationships with contractors.”

Results-driven with attention to detail, Ben is motivated by keeping workflows moving and executing projects successfully. He finds it rewarding to oversee projects that positively change the fabric of a city, town or organization, from the concept stage to completion. In addition, he values the variety of projects and opportunities CORE Planning Strategies provides.

Ben studied graphic design and product design at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit. He is an active member of the St. Jude Men’s Club, volunteers with Roncalli High School, and enjoys participating in philanthropic and community events. An avid outdoorsman, Ben can often be found hiking or playing outside with his children, working in the yard, and visiting one of Indiana’s great state parks.
