About Us

Founded in 2011

Launched in 2011, Soben offers something different. A combination of the best consultancy practices, with real-life hands-on commercial experience in delivering major construction projects.

The Result

As a result, Scott founded Soben to combine best consultancy practices, with the experience of being a contractor and the commercial reality of having what it takes to successfully deliver a major project.

Our Founder

Our founder Scott Smyth started his career in private practice and then moved to work for contractors as a commercial manager being on-site to manage major projects.  ​Scott found that he struggled to identify organisations to support him that understood the commercial reality of being a major contractor working on high-risk projects with low-profit margins.
