Ben Hilder Construction Manager

Days at Fergus

After approaching Fergus Builders for an apprenticeship and receiving a resounding ‘no’, Ben was not deterred, he persisted until such time as Jann got fed up with him coming in and forced Garry to take him on. 24 years later, he has the role of Construction Manager, a mere title that does not begin to cover all he contributes to Fergus. His steady strength and stability has been and will continue to be a rock for all of us. He represents the Mackay & District for the Master Builders Association of Queensland and keeps up to date with all that is happening in the industry state wide. Ben’s physical stature is similar to that of his presence at Fergus; tall and commanding, he has the upmost respect for those he works with and vice versa.
