Posted on July 26, 2023

Roux is excited and proud to announce that the Buffalo-based firm, Benchmark Civil/Environmental Engineering & Geology, PLLC and TurnKey Environmental Restoration, LLC (collectively called Benchmark TurnKey) have merged with Roux as of July 24, 2023.

Benchmark TurnKey was founded in 1998 and was majority owned by Tom Forbes (President of Benchmark) and Mike Lesakowski (President of TurnKey). Benchmark is a licensed professional engineering company that provides comprehensive civil and environmental engineering services. TurnKey is their associated firm that provides site investigation, remediation and infrastructure construction, and environmental and site management services.

Benchmark TurnKey, comprised of 35 personnel, is known to be a strong advocate for their clients’ business interests and projects. Many of their client relationships span over 25 years. 

Tom Forbes, new Vice President at Roux, shared, “Mike and I are proud to be welcomed into a company that strongly values its clients and personnel in the same way we do, which shares our career-long passion for doing quality work that benefits the environment. We all look forward to our future with Roux!”

Roux has worked in Western New York for over 25 years on multi-year remediation projects, partnering with Benchmark TurnKey several times on projects—this ultimately led to a realization that combining firms and achieving a more substantial presence in Western New York would benefit all.

Sin Senh, CEO of Roux, stated, “This cultural alignment between our two firms just makes good business sense, allowing us to better service and expand our clients in Western New York, a geography currently experiencing a growth cycle with new opportunities in technology, manufacturing, and clean energy. I am excited to take this next step with them, and I know they will help us grow in the long term.”

We look forward to serving and growing this valuable partnership. For more information about Roux, please visit the link below.
