Mark M. Anderson
Mark Anderson founded Benchmark in 1984. Benchmark was formed as a “niche” general contracting firm to handle a variety of general contracting functions to include residential remodeling, new home construction, commercial remodeling, new commercial construction, and small multi-family construction. In the last twenty-five years, Benchmark has completed over one thousand residential and commercial projects of all sizes throughout Lee County. Over the years, the staff at Benchmark has developed a wealth of knowledge in such areas as local permitting procedures and processes, floodplain construction, windstorm protection and the use and implementation of sustainable and green technologies. Having very little employee turnover, Benchmark enjoys the advantage of maintaining a strong, efficient, and well-rounded staff. Most employees have been with Benchmark for extended periods of service, the average employment term of its ten employees being just over thirteen years. In addition to working with their typical high end residential and commercial clientele, Benchmark has worked over the years on many public and institutional projects such as a 14 unit below market housing project for Community Housing Resources on Sanibel Island and the Ronald McDonald House at Health Park. Mark has been actively involved in numerous local charities and philanthropic organizations during his entire professional career.
