Meet the Founder

Thank you so much for visiting our website. I’m Ben Mackie, the founder of The Party Wall Collective. I am a Chartered Construction Manager, a member of the Pyramus & Thisbe Society, a member of the Faculty of Party Wall Surveyors, an accredited mediator and I have over 10 years’ experience handling party wall matters.

I’m a family man, with an amazing wife and three young children. I love writing, and telling stories, especially to my children, but sometimes to my wife!

I have written children’s stories, a novel, and I am also doing a London Street Art book which I plan to donate to the charity Shelter. Have a look below at some of the images I have captured, walking around London between my party wall appointments!

I have also produced a couple of Party Wall books working with the most respected people in the game, whilst ensuring these books are available to the public for free.

I love to travel and have been to some places that I never thought possible, including the Antarctic, the Galapagos and Southend.

I love to cook. My masterpiece is my egg shakshuka. I make it with smoked paprika, halloumi, Spanish Chorizo and tinned cherry tomatoes, Greek yogurt and about 10 more ingredients!

I enjoy playing the guitar and Sitar, as well as singing badly.

I value imagination, originality, and differences.

    Our Ethos

    We will always endeavour to have the highest standards of integrity and ethics. We do this by being transparent. We show you our fees up front. We explain things clearly, aiming to give you the right information, at the right time. We welcome scrutiny and criticism, and we are always looking to improve.

    We will work with you, using positive energy, enthusiasm, and diligence. We put you first, above us, above our profits, and above our egos. We want what is best for you, and you can expect us to advise you accordingly.

    We donate so much to charity. We know it makes a difference. We have planted 500 square metres of woodland, and separately, every month, we plant 100 trees. We donated to Refuge, helping a woman and her children stay a night and we provided them with essentials. We have purchased books and pencils for an entire school. We gave money to Marie Curie which was used to provide a person with 9 hours’ worth of support.

    We are currently working on a Street Art book, with a view to donating it to the Charity ‘Shelter’. We will continue to regularly donate to a range of causes, and we really want to work in partnership with good people to improve this World for us all.
