“The success of our recently completed Eagle’s View Church project in Fort Worth, Texas, was realized because of the strong team approach between Architect/Owner/Contractor and MEP Engineer. We were very fortunate to have Benchmark Group on our team because they were skilled in communicating effectively with all parties and offered creative, budget-friendly design solutions that were successfully incorporated into the final design. Scott Forbes and his team provided exceptional service and professional skill during the entire design and construction phases of the project, and we are pleased to be working with them again on another church design project.”

“Our Experience with the team at Benchmark was fantastic! They did a great job of interpreting what we wanted and suggesting what would be a good fit. The little details in design made a difference. They were responsive to questions, very accommodating to changes, and easy to do business with. We are very happy and would recommend their services.”
