The Tektoniks Process

Work with Tektoniks begins by reviewing your project, including energy goals, schedule and budget. We consider structural details, architectural standards and rough component costs. We provide training which can be applied to virtually any project. We also help Architects and Builders represent the value proposition to their clients.
Design Contract and Preconstruction
During Preconstruction, Bensonwood supports your project team with periodic budget checks, schedule updates and design and engineering reviews. Once the client's design team confirms design lock, Bensonwood creates the build contract estimate.

Build Contract
Once construction drawings are completed and approved, Bensonwood’s virtual fabrication team will build a 3D model of the project and prepare the components for offsite fabrication and bundling. Fabrication itself happens very quickly, after which the component bundles will be shipped to site according to the build schedule.

On-Site Construction
Extensive care is taken in advance of shipping, to determine truck access, material lay down points, and parking. Components will be delivered to site in coordination with your general contractor. Bensonwood’s assembly crews collaborate with the general contractor and subtrades to successfully perform a rapid on-site assembly that ends with a completed, weather-tight shell.
