Soben expands international presence by opening Chicago office, announces NA CEO

Soben, an award-winning international construction consultancy, announced today the expansion of its operations into the United States. The company’s new U.S. headquarters will be located in Chicago, IL with the newly hired North America CEO Joe Cusick leading a team of 11 consultants serving clients in the United States, Mexico, and Chile. 

Soben’s specialized construction solutions include cost management, project controls, and scheduling — all of which help industry-leading companies locate cost- and time-saving efficiencies whilst proactively managing and mitigating risk in their construction investments.

Soben’s 90-person UK team has previously completed high-profile projects with Glasgow Airport, London Heathrow Airport, and High Speed 2, a planned high-speed railway system in the United Kingdom, as well as with confidential clients on data center projects in the UK, Denmark, Ireland, the Netherlands, and Spain. Soben’s new U.S. team plans to focus on developer clients in the mission-critical, data center, infrastructure, life sciences, and renewable energy sectors.

Soben’s expansion into the U.S. stemmed from the recent closing of a leading West Coast data center developer as an anchor client. Joe Cusick was previously a Director at Linesight, a professional services consultancy focused on the global construction industry, where he led the project controls delivery on a $2 billion data center program and was engaged on more than $8 billion in construction projects. Prior to Linesight, he held strategic roles at Currie & Brown and Faithful+Gould.
