Paul C. Parks Engineering was founded in Rogers in 1978 as an electrical engineering sole proprietorship. Owner and founder Paul C. Parks, P.E., incorporated the firm so he could share ownership with his staff. To meet the needs of clients, the firm expanded by adding architectural and interior design services. In 2013, the company name was changed to Benchmark Group, Inc. to reflect the standard of excellence Mr. Parks sought to maintain for every project.
Now with a second office located in Dallas, Benchmark has grown into one of the most respected firms in the industry. Its portfolio includes large national chains and small, local businesses. But regardless of the size, the Benchmark team works to connect with each client through a culture of collaboration and trust.
Benchmark projects have included everything from convenience stores to large corporate offices and distribution/fulfillment centers, and the industries touched by Benchmark include civic/cultural, C-stores, food & beverage, grocery, hospitality, retail, sports and more.
Benchmark has been the recipient of an Arkansas Quality Commitment Award, a LEED Silver Award from the U.S. Green Building Council and a Governor’s Work/Life Balance Award.
The firm’s 40th anniversary was recognized in 2018 through “40 Acts of Service” in its community and it continues to partner with several non-profits while giving team members paid time to volunteer at their favorite organization.
David P. Kimball, P.E., President, believes the firm’s people are its greatest asset. “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,” he said. “These values remain at the core foundation of our company and team at Benchmark Group.”
