Today I'd like to salute Benchmark Glass.
I discovered one of the founding owners’ of Benchmark Glass, Ron LeClair, not only had the same last name as mine (with a tiny variation of the capital C) but his first name matched that of my older sibling who helped make GeoStudios possible. Serendipitous one might say. And when I read the websites ‘about’ page did not fail to notice Ron’s thoughts mesh with my own in terms of local control and autonomy. It reads “...His goal was to build a glass service that was free of the corporate bureaucracy…” Gotta like that.
I’ve dealt with Benchmark on several occasions in the last couple of years. From getting my lexan glass for previous domes to a new windshield on my vehicle. Each time it was service without a hitch. From the moment you walk into the store on 2nd Ave North you get that “these guys have it together” kind of feel. Excellent service and helpful advice.
Special thanks to David Proctor for his time to explain the details of the future ‘StarGazer’ pentagon. Look forward to working with you guys some more. :)
Gilles Leclair is the founder of GeoStudios. Somewhat eccentric, fairly environmentalist, politically aware, he believes the world should have more off-grid communities... many more.
