About Us:

Scott DePalatis, owner of Benchmark Architecture, is a long-time Alaskan. He's resided in Anchorage since securing Architecture degrees at the University of Kansas.  He's established himself in the community as a reliable and talented Alaskan architect. His experience includes both public and private sector clients.

Scott is a hands-on Anchorage architect, not a manager who turns projects over to junior employees.  He uses Cadd precision and Internet technologies to efficiently assemble accurate construction documents for owners and general contractors.  His past projects include national brand retail facilities, office buildings, surgery centers and medical office space, radio and television broadcasting facilities, restaurants and tenant improvements.

Scott worked closely with MAPCO (now Holiday Station Stores) as Project Architect on over forty new stores and remodels across Alaska. For over a decade, the client's 30-day Alaska design production deadlines were met on time.  In addition, Scott has produced such projects as the Alaska Railroad Headquarters Building and the ARRC Depot Renovation
at Ship Creek;  the 172 unit, $300 million multi-family panelized military housing project on Elmendorf AFB;  the KAKM Public Television and KSKA Public Radio Facility on the campus of APU;  the disabled ski facility at Alyeska for Challenge Alaska;  the Jeep Eagle Showroom and Dealership;  renovation of a vacant mall into a public assistance One-Stop Center;  the 27,000 SF South Anchorage Dodge facility; a variety of insulated metal panel buildings for offices and warehouses;  and the design for an inflatable building to cover two hockey rinks.   Scott designed the Alaska Medical Development offices & minor surgery centers in Anchorage, Fairbanks and Wasilla.

Benchmark Architecture completed a rebuild of Cottonwood Creek Mall in Wasilla, designing the Sports Authority and a multi-tenant shops building.   Scott also worked with Sports Authority and Best Buy as their Anchorage architect to design Tikahtnu Commons stores;  as well as two multi-tenant shops buildings in this premier development.   More recently Scott has worked with HMSHost and DOT facility engineers to complete food service and retail projects in the Ted Stavens Anchorage International Airport.  Current clients include Lithia Motors and national retailers.
