30 Years of Excellence and a New Chapter at Benchmark

30 yr logoTwenty-twenty four marks a monumental year for Benchmark as we celebrate our 30th anniversary on June 27th. This significant milestone not only highlights our three decades of commitment to providing unparalleled service and expertise in the roofing and pavement consulting industry but also signifies an exciting leadership transition that promises to propel us into the future with renewed energy.

Benchmark's Journey Through the Years

In 1994, the Taylor Associates Management Team purchased the consulting group from the Taylor family. Taylor Associates rebranded to Benchmark, Inc. in 1995. The name was chosen to represent our commitment to setting a high standard for which to be measured from. In 2004, Benchmark, Inc. and Pavement Consulting, Inc. merged, reinforcing our position as a comprehensive consulting firm.  Over the years, Benchmark has grown into a thriving business with multiple locations across the country and a team of highly dedicated professionals. We have completed over 4 billion square feet of roof and pavement inspections and helped over 225 Fortune 500 clients.

Leadership Transition - A New Era

As we celebrate our 30th anniversary, we are also welcoming a new era in our leadership. This transition is a testament to our commitment to continuous growth and adaptation in an ever-evolving industry. With the retirement of Ron Harriman (June 21, 2024) and Vince Ellison taking over as president, our new leadership team is poised to build on the strong foundation laid, driving Benchmark towards new heights of innovation and customer satisfaction.

Why Benchmark Stands Out

Expertise and Experience

Our team comprises of over 50 consultants; 5 Registered Roof Consultants (RRCs), 20 Registered Roof Observers (RROs), and six Professional Engineers (PEs), all dedicated to delivering high-quality services. We also have two Construction Documents Technologist (CDT) to ensure that our projects are meticulously documented and executed.

Commitment to Safety and Quality

We prioritized safety and quality. All our consultants undergo rigorous training, including a 10-hour OSHA course, AED, and first aid training. Our Safety Director performs regular safety audits to ensure that our projects meet the highest standards of safety.

Unmatched Service and Relationships

Our mission is to provide challenging and rewarding career opportunities while offering unmatched service and expertise. We believe in creating meaningful and lasting relationships within our team, with our clients, suppliers, and other business partners. This ethos has been the driving force behind our long-term partnerships with numerous Fortune 500 companies.

Community Involvement

Benchmark is deeply committed to giving back to the community. From flood recovery efforts in Cedar Rapids to participating in various charitable events, our team is always ready to lend a helping hand. We have contributed to organizations like the American Cancer Society, United Way, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, and March of Dimes Walk America, among many others.

Looking Forward

As we celebrate this milestone, we remain steadfast in our commitment to great service. The leadership transition marks the beginning of a new chapter, one where we will continue to uphold our core values while exploring new avenues for growth and development.

Thank you for being a part of our incredible journey. Here's to the next 30 years of success, innovation, and unparalleled service.
