Today Jonathan Paulding is leaving our team to pursue his dream to become involved in #Preconstruction on the General Contractor side.

Jonathan has been with Benchmark since shortly after we phased out of Consulting and into #Glazing Contracting, acting first as our Estimator, then eventually our Sales Manager. He has been instrumental in developing the great relationships we have with our very best customers, building the trust required to close Glass and Glazing Subcontract Projects of all shapes, sizes and levels of complexity.

Jonathan is an excellent techician, a great friend and a valued son of our President. Although he and his beautiful new wife Laura live but a few miles from our headquarters, we will miss working with him every day.

Please join us as we wish Jonathan great success and satisfaction in his new endeavor!

Benchmark's Quality Team is Making it Rain! 🌦🌧💦

In this video, watch Benchmark's Quality Team perform testing to ensure that the system we installed met our customer's architect's specifications on performance. This is an example of a water penetration test, where a vacuum chamber is set up on the inside of the building and water is sprayed from the outside. Properly executed, a water penetration test replicates the conditions of a storm, where low pressure inside a building in effect suctions water from the exterior of the building. In real life, this phenomenon can lead to potential leaking issues if the system or surrounding conditions are not properly designed or installed. It's for this reason that Benchmark trains and equips our team to perform these tests well in advance of any project closeout tests required by the owners of the buildings we serve. We've seen our voluntarily performance of these tests as installation ramps up and throughout our fieldwork save our customers countless issues during and after the project which otherwise could lead to delays or unwanted warranty issues.

It's been great to see our work on the Meridian On First apartments come together. What an incredible project!

Benchmark's scope of work includes furnishing and installing #curtainwall, #entrances and #panels across much of the first floor, penthouse, and throughout this luxurious apartment facility.

Our favorite feature of the project are the 2 Benchmark-installed towering glass LED back-lit "fins" - a bold and eye-catching finish to the project.

Many thanks to Paradigm Companies for their trust in our Team's expertise.

Shout out to our great vendors YKK AP Inc. and Oldcastle Buildingenvelope for the high quality glass and glazing systems.

Great job, all!
