Staff Profile: Ben Long

10 July 2020

Ben started with BCA Logic a little over five years ago as a Junior Building Regulations Consultant and was recently promoted to Senior Building Regulations Consultant. During his time at BCA Logic Ben has gained great experience in both technical knowledge and customer and client management.

Ben is accredited with the NSW Building Professionals Board as an A1 Accredited Certifier/ Building Surveyor and with the AIBS as a nationally accredited Building Surveyor. 

How did you break into this industry and why?

I have always been interested in the construction industry so I always knew I would end up here doing something. I went to University for Construction Management as it offered a wide range of job prospects; within my first year there was a course on Building Compliance and Regulation which piqued my interest and I haven’t looked back since.

 

What do you like most about your job?

I love the variety it offers. Every day is a new project or a new matter to be solved on a wide range of building types.

 

What has been your proudest achievement in your career?

Getting my A1 accreditation was a pretty big step which I am proud of. To have my accomplishments and experience in my career recognised and endorsed is a great feeling. Still hopefully many achievements to come but that sets a pretty high benchmark.

 

What’s a fun fact about you many people may not know?

I guess there are a few out there who know this but, on the occasion, I would hit the nightclubs as a DJ and play some of the ‘doof doof music’ as commonly referred to.

 

What is your most favourite memory from BCA Logic?

Each of the BCA Logic events that we have are always memorable with all the employees getting together for a laugh and a good time. As the somewhat self-appointed Director of Morale, I enjoy using these opportunities to make sure everyone is having fun and fulfil my role.
