Ben Weber formed Coben in 2014, having previously worked at Probuild Constructions for a period of 12 years. Whilst at Probuild, Ben developed a love for high quality, often very technical residential projects. With a desire to continue focusing on projects of this nature, Ben established Coben, where he has been able to channel this passion ever since.


Ben Lumb joined Coben in early 2017, following 4 years with a company that specialised in high end-residential, multi-residential and commercial fit out work. Prior to this, Ben also worked for 10 years at Probuild Constructions. Like Ben Weber, Ben has extensive experience in design-focused, technical projects, which brings immense expertise to each job.

Coben is also supported by a development partner, Phil Mehrten. Phil founded Probuild Constructions in 1987 and brings vast experience and mentoring support to the team.


All our key personnel have worked alongside each other for many years on a diverse range of projects. We all have experience in larger companies at a senior management level, but what we pride ourselves on is that we have spent a large part of our careers on site getting into the detail and leading delivery teams. Executing our projects well is core value we all place huge importance on.
