Hello. My name is Ben Mathews, I am a qualified builder and carpenter. I have been in the game for over 25 years and my passion for the building industry just keeps on growing.

BAM is a family run construction company, my wife, Simone runs the interior design service and I lead the construction side of BAM. We are the owners of SOUL of Gerringong and have 4 beautiful boys… perhaps future apprentices!

With extensive personal experience, we understand it is far more than just building . . .  we know the impact that completed homes can have on your family’s lifestyle. BAM is underpinned by the magic of Simone and I working together for you. Our full-service offering helps our clients’ ideas evolve throughout the entire building journey with my dedication to craftsmanship and Simone’s design vision & styling.



Builder and avid surfer, Ben Mathews, leads the BAM team. His extensive industry experience coupled with his passion for the details shows through in his commitment to clients who become friends.

When he’s not on-site, you might catch him in the surf, anywhere from Gerringong to Byron Bay with at least one of his 4 boys or enjoying a nasi goreng in Bali.



A self-confessed lover of palm trees, creator of beautiful spaces and holiday places, Simone Mathews is the force behind the interiors side of the business.

With over a decade of personal and professional interior design experience, her passion is not only for design but the psychology of a space.
