San Mateo, CA – Truebeck Construction, an industry-leading commercial general contractor, is pleased to welcome Ben Hancock as MEP Preconstruction Executive.
With 18 years of experience in preconstruction and a specialty in electrical estimating, Hancock will lead Truebeck’s in-house MEP estimating team. MEP systems account for the greatest percentage of costs on a project with electrical being the most expensive. Hancock’s unique skillset will strengthen Truebeck’s ability to provide cost-saving solutions and highly detailed estimates to their clients on this often-challenging project scope.
Prior to his career in preconstruction, Hancock worked in the field as an electrician. This time spent in the field gives Hancock critical insight into electrical systems and how Truebeck’s MEP trade partners operate. With this knowledge acquired from field experience, Hancock can provide detailed and accurate estimates on a project’s MEP systems. Furthermore, his experience also aids him in procuring the trade partners best equipped to handle a job at the lowest possible price.
Hancock has technical experience across industries including healthcare, life science, data center, education, and class-A office space. He’s worked for clients such as Kaiser Permanente, Hewlett Packard, UC Berkeley, and Facebook.
“One of the differentiators for Truebeck’s preconstruction team has always been our in-house MEPF expertise,” said Todd Ahern, Chief Estimator. “We recognize the impact our team can have on the design and construction strategies surrounding these costly and complicated systems during early phases of preconstruction. The addition of Ben to our team is going to propel us to new heights as we continue to deliver the best value to our clients as a full-service preconstruction team.”
Hancock holds a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management from Brigham Young University. He is a LEED Accredited Professional for Business Development and Construction (LEED AP BD+C) and is an associate of the Design-Build Institute of America.
