Best Residential Infill – Awarded during Preservation week “Restore America: Community at a Crossroads”
At a ceremony held at the Kirkwood Train Station, the City of Kirkwood Landmarks Commission proudly recognized Benchmark Homes for their new single-family development in the Meacham Park Neighborhood.
“New single-family housing which fits comfortably into the existing character of its neighborhood. Like a good addition, this good neighbor found compatibility through the use of scale, proportion, materials, textures and details.”
Fourth of July – “On behalf of the happy throng that thoroughly enjoy the Community Freedom Festival (Kirkwood), we thank you for your generous and patriotic support. All the joyful faces lit up by the spectacular fireworks demonstrated the importance of this traditional event that you made a reality”

“Rebuilding Together” : Often, Mark Rasch and the employees of Benchmark Homes participate in “Rebuilding Together”, a program sponsored by the HBA.”Once again, HBA member volunteers and suppliers worked together to brighten the lives of two needy St. Louis Homeowners….coordinators from the Remodelors Council and the Custom Home Builders Council (CHBC) assigned both complex and simple duties to dozens of volunteers. As a result, both homes are now much more safe and useable. To date, the cash, material and labor donations for the houses are estimated to be in the $20,000 to $25,000 range.
This was the seventh straight year the Home Builders Charitable foundation provided the base funds to “adopt” two houses through “Rebuilding Together”. – St. Louis Builder News
