Our Company

RF Benchmark Construction is a great company, and I have worked with them on more than just the Bluemont Elementary School project. Their staff is very professional and accommodating to our requests. I would highly recommend working with RF Benchmark Construction on any project.

Kathy Stitt, Bluemont Elementary School Principal

RF Benchmark Construction has brought knowledge, experience, competence, consciousness, accountability, integrity and a proven track record of success to our construction projects. Their responses and willingness to help achieve our goals has been exemplary.

Gwyn E. Riffel, Riffel Asset Management, Inc.

We have worked in a variety of different contract relationships such as the low-bid process, time/material basis, design/build-to-budget, and construction manager process. I have a significant level of comfort with our working relationship, their leadership and people skills, and most importantly their follow-up to issues. I highly recommend RF Benchmark Construction for your next construction project.

Working with RF Benchmark Construction was a good experience. They were very accommodating to the owner and us during the construction process and held to the budget and schedule of the project. We look forward to working with RF Benchmark Construction on future projects, because they are responsive to both the owner and us.

Heather Peterson, Action Pact Design

RF Benchmark Construction utilizes Procore to manage their projects, which makes it much easier for the entire team to track project information. It’s very robust and helps streamline a tightly scheduled project. They were very accommodating in customizing the interface of the system, so it would work best for our use in coordinating between the design team, the Owner, and the Contractor.

RF Benchmark Construction is vested as a long term community stakeholder and has completed many projects in the Manhattan area. They hold themselves and their subcontractors to high quality work and accommodate the owner and design team’s requests. I have enjoyed working with RF Benchmark Construction.

Clint Hibbs, BG Consultants

RF Benchmark Construction was easy to work with communicating the progress throughout the project. Since this was a historical renovation, there were many challenges faced during the project, but RF Benchmark Construction communicated those problems and presented a solution. I have recommended working with the RF Benchmark Construction team and will continue to do so.

Dalton Paley, Limestone Pizza

I would unconditionally recommend working with RF Benchmark Construction on your next project. They were responsive throughout the entire process and continue to be a resource for me on any construction issues, both for the project they completed for us and our other locations. They are always honest and do what they say they will do in a timely manner. Working with RF Benchmark Construction made a challenging project much more pleasant.

Josh Kurzban, BurgerFi

My experience with the RF Benchmark Construction team includes a multitude of various sizes and types of construction projects. They are dependable, they communicate, and they get the work done.

Mark Taussig, ASLA, Kansas State University

RF Benchmark Construction brought the project in on budget and on schedule without sacrificing quality. I enjoyed working with the team, as they kept my stress level low during the project. I would recommend working with them and would work with them again if given the chance.

Ward Morgan, Civic Plus

We found RF Benchmark Construction great to work with. During construction, their crew was very respectful of our on-going operation. Their work was very thorough, and the quality of the finished project was high. RF Benchmark Construction does what they say they will do, and that is a breath of fresh air in today’s fast paced environment. We will use them again in the future.
