Your team of choice.

FIRM HISTORY

We are a client-centered engineering and architecture firm with design professionals licensed in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.  Office locations include Rogers, Arkansas and Dallas, Texas.

Founded in 1978 by Paul C. Parks, P.E., as an electrical engineering sole proprietorship, innovation was and continues to be a key driver to our success.  As we evolved and expanded our client base, we added additional engineering services and architecture to provide a wide range of solutions to our clients. In 1987, the company name was changed to Benchmark Group to reflect the standard of excellence Paul expected based on W. Edward Deming’s total quality management principles.

Under Paul’s leadership, the company has grown to be a respected engineering and architectural firm working with large, national chains and small, local businesses with the same commitment to making our clients happy. For this reason, we have developed long-term relationships with our clients. Paul instilled a tradition of family first, quality practices, and customer service but most of all he believed in always doing the right thing and lived by it every day. These values remain at the core foundation of our company and team at Benchmark Group.
