Ben Ahring, PE

Senior Project Manager

Ben’s first foray into the world of engineering was at seven years old, when he designed a miniature golf course in his backyard. While his passion for golf remains the same, Ben has become one of EEA’s most trusted senior project managers. He provides project oversight and efficient design solutions that integrate sound engineering principles and cost-effective alternatives for EEA’s clients.

Ben serves on the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD) Technical Advisory Committee and is an active member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Northeast Illinois Chapter and the Parks Foundation of Oak Park. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Bradley University and is a licensed professional engineer in the state of Illinois.

Eclipsing his passion for golf is Ben’s love for his family. He volunteers as a coach for his son’s baseball team and is a leader of the local Prairie Trail Federation group, a father-son organization that encourages spending time with your kids.
