Benjamin Heginbotham

As director and founder of architectural design firm The Practical Planning Company, Benjamin – an experienced designer with a background in construction – helps everyday homeowners across the East Midlands design and plan their dream home.

Benjamin began his career as a joiner and kitchen cabinet maker before going on to manage residential build sites, working for 10 years on home extensions, refurbishments and renovations. He then went on to complete a degree in architecture (Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Part One) in Leeds.

After settling in the East Midlands in 2015, he has since been honing his skills as a designer before founding The Practical Planning Company with his wife, Jodie, in 2019. The duo launched their architectural design firm to provide a more bespoke, customer-focused service and the very best in home design, giving people the space they truly need and deserve.
