||Over the past three decades Benchmark Construction has emerged as one of the most respected general contracting firms in central Pennsylvania. Again and again, in the arena of commercial and institutional construction, we have proven our ability to take on large, complex projects and complete them on time, on budget, and at the highest levels of quality.
Our growing reputation for excellence, resourcefulness and responsiveness is no accident. It is a natural consequence of the values that have guided our company since its founding. These include an energetic enthusiasm for what we do. A sensitivity to the needs of our customers. A willingness to accept total responsibility. And a craftsmanlike pride in knowing that what we build will last for generations. While some in our industry might find these attitudes old-fashioned, we believe they are why knowledgeable businesses, organizations and architects throughout our region place their confidence, and their trust, in Benchmark Construction. Simply put, we think it's a better way to build.
Started in 1985 by Bob Brandt, Benchmark Construction Company is located in Brownstown, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
Since we began operations, we have contracted for over $1 billion in construction projects throughout our geographic region which includes central and southeast Pennsylvania along with parts of Northern Maryland and Northern Delaware. This year we are projected to complete an estimated $95 million worth of projects. We attribute this success to several factors, but foremost among them is our commitment to the satisfaction of our customer. To produce a quality-crafted facility, we closely manage each project to completion, acting at all times in the best interest of the owner. Benchmark believes in delivering unparalleled construction management service tailored to our customer's unique and individual needs.
Benchmark's preconstruction service centers around "doing our homework". We pride ourselves on becoming involved in all aspects of your project. Lending our construction experience to the design team as well as understanding and managing the complicated municipal approval process. The foundation of our services is based on our fully-computerized Estimating Department. Through state-of-the-art technology and information systems, we continuously update our database of more than 10,000 vendors and subcontractors, which allows us to develop precise information on costs for the design and development of virtually any construction project.
Benchmark's construction service is based on "hands-on" project management. Our strength is the ability to schedule concurrent short and long-term construction activities, and then effectively manage both for timely project completion. We consistently meet and beat our customers' construction deadlines. At Benchmark, quality will never be compromised.
Today Benchmark employs over 140 people, which includes an experienced professional staff and a field force of over 80 journeyman carpenters, apprentices and laborers - all focused on one goal, that the services provided exceed the expectations of our customer.
Benchmark is, after all, a service organization. And we believe that there is no better proof of a commitment to service than a project which demonstrates the integrity of its builder. What we do for a living is not especially unique. What we believe is unique is our commitment to honesty, concern for the customer, timeliness and a quality project.
At Benchmark, we stake our name and reputation on it.
