Commitment to Sustainability

Benchmark has demonstrated a commitment to green practices for three decades and has guided our clients, trade partners, and vendors toward sustainable choices. Through the preconstruction and construction process, our in-depth knowledge of LEED, Passive Building Principles, and Green Advantage Best Practices guides our clients’ decisions on sustainability, green building, and the related cost implications. With thoughtful considerations of green practices, our clients can visualize the positive impact their choices have on their community’s environment.

Best Practices

Sustainability for our clients starts with our own best practices. To reduce our carbon footprint, Benchmark corporate headquarters, training center, and warehouse utilize solar panels, LED site lighting, and sensor lights. Our in-house Sustainability Committee seeks opportunities to identify environmentally sensitive ways to work proactively. Through the committee’s advocacy and continuous education, our vision is to inform, educate and stay well-versed in current and emerging green practices.

Environmental Conscious

To bring creative, environmentally conscious, and financially responsible solutions to our clients, we encourage employees to obtain certifications in Green Advantage, LEED Green Associates, LEED Accredited Professionals, LEED AP Building Design and Construction, or other green certifications.

While Benchmark recognizes that not every project is LEED-qualified, implementing purposeful green building guides our clients through sustainable best practices. Through this commitment, we can not only build better buildings; we can build a better community.

Our team brings unparalleled experience, passion, and ability to every project. Our open-book policy provides transparency and engagement with our clients not seen on most job sites. Enabling webcams, owners can remotely monitor the construction process and make informed decisions promptly.
