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.
Places we have worked
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.
