By Hannah Morrey Brown, Project Manager at Straub Construction
Straub is so excited to welcome Ben Lutz to the team as our newest estimator! Ben was born and raised in the Kansas City area, but left for college at Baylor where he pursued a degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Commercial Real Estate. Upon graduation, he returned to Kansas City and has worked for the past eight years as a commercial real estate appraiser. This background has given Ben a unique perspective on projects from their initial concept to final design.
Ben was always more interested in construction and development and was thrilled to make the change to Straub. The culture has stood out to Ben as one of the biggest benefits of working here: “I enjoy learning and working as a group with the ability to bounce ideas off one another. The people have definitely been my favorite part of working here!”
Ben is married to his college sweetheart and together they have a 10-month old daughter, Samantha. Outside of work, Ben can be found tearing up the disc golf course or enjoying the great outdoors hunting and fishing. We’re so glad to have Ben be a part of Straub!
