The President and Director of Benchmark Properties Ltd. is Mr. Robert Bontkes. Mr. Bontkes’ expertise in land development, industrial, commercial and residential construction is the product of over 45 years of experience. Our specialization in commercial development since the mid 1980’s has served to increase the ability of the Benchmark team to serve our tenants at the highest level.

Following its inception in the mid 1970’s, Benchmark constructed many homes in subdivisions such as Heritage Mountain, Guildford Chase, Langley Meadows, Walnut Grove, Fraser Woods, Brookside, Rolling Meadows and Clayton Village.

Over the past forty-five years, the Benchmark Group of Companies has emerged as a leader in commercial real estate development. In Surrey, Benchmark developed Benchmark Plaza, followed by the highly successful 35 acre business park joint venture known as Surrey Central Business Park, a first of its kind for the City of Surrey.  More recently Benchmark has been developing its lands in the Panorama area.  The Benchmark Business Centre development includes first class office space with unique amenities.

In Langley, the Langley Business Centre is a 31 acre light industrial development. It is comprised of a number of multi-tenant warehouse/office complexes. This development is strategically situated in the centre of Langley’s retail shopping district.  Of particular interest in this development is the Canadian Tire Distribution Center, as well as Benchmark’s own award-winning corporate headquarters.  The Walnut Grove Commerce Centre is North Langley’s premier office building with exceptional facilities and our newest building is the Golden Ears Business Centre on the approach to the Golden Ears Bridge.  This building has first floor retail spaces with two floors of class A office above with some secured covered parking.

While the Benchmark Group manages its own construction, it also owns and manages over 1,000,000 square feet of commercial space. Major tenants include the RCMP, Fraser Health, RBC,  HSBC, Provincial Government Ministries, Robert Half, and Solaris Management Consultants.
