Mechanical Engineering

With extensive nation-wide project experience, Benchmark Group’s Mechanical team has the expertise and code knowledge to create sound, effective, and cost-efficient mechanical systems for your project. We can produce a more complete design with fewer changes required in the field during construction. This moves the project along smoothly with fewer delays and reduces the number of costly change orders during the building of the project.

Our team believes in high quality construction documents at a reasonable cost for every Client. This begins with open lines of communication, quick response time by us, and attention to details – all which set our highly skilled team above the competition. Maintaining long-term client partnerships through quality and client satisfaction are the foundation we were built on and continues to be our goal.

“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.”
