Ben Martin

From an early age, Ben Martin was taking things apart and figuring out ways to reassemble them better. This continued throughout his four-year career with the United States Marine Corps as an electrical equipment repair specialist where he set up and maintained power distribution systems and electrical devices, including generators, distribution panels and mobile and temporary lighting. For his service, Ben received the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal. Following an honorable discharge  from the military in 2007, Ben launched his AEC career.

Before joining Schmidt Associates, Ben was an electrical project engineer with Specialized Engineering Solutions where he was responsible for the design of lighting, power systems, back-up emergency generators, communications, fire alarms, and Arc Flash studies for healthcare, education, government, and community projects. As a senior electrical engineer for Schmidt Associates, Ben is committed to helping Owners by going above and beyond to provide value. He takes pride in solving complex problems and knowing that what he is doing is worthwhile and useful to others.

Outside of work

Ben enjoys woodworking and is currently constructing a cupula for the top of his home workshop. He also owns several lawn tractors that he is rebuilding. When he’s not working in his shop, Ben can be found volunteering at Servant’s Heart of Indy with his church small group. Additionally, he and his wife, Leslee are the proud parents of two boys named Anderson and Emerson.
