Timber Frame

Teaming with Bensonwood affords architects and builders a trusted partner with a 50-year legacy of excellence in timber frame construction that blends traditional craftsmanship with modern specialized machine tooling precision. We fabricate and install timber frame structures that emphasize structural integrity and furniture quality aesthetics.

Expert Timber Frame Construction

We use timber frame as an enabling approach to achieve faster site times and seamless integration with our panelized building enclosures and mass timber work.  That timber framing method delivers spacious and visually compelling interiors.  The strength and durability of the building structure is paramount, which is why we place such an emphasis on quality materials and time-tested techniques.  

 

Modern Tools for A Timeless Trade

Today, we use advanced technology, including computer-aided design and computer numeric control (CNC) machinery such as our 6-Axis fabrication robotic machine, which includes a 16-tool magazine and can process 6 sides of a timber component without rotation. It can be configured for complex cutting and joinery, delivering accurate and consistent joinery  in timber up to 48’’ wide. The machining capability includes pre-drilling for countersinks or screws which streamlines the design and construction process ensuring precision and efficiency. 

Collaborative Design Integration

Central to Bensonwood’s offering is our ability to integrate the visions of professional architects and builders into every project and in turn, build those visions better and smarter than anticipatedWe use detailed digital fabrication models to plan each timber element, including the cutting routines and tool paths involved.  We review the details in collaboration with the designers, as well as in coordination with other building systems.  We prioritize transparent communication, professionalism, and delivering on promises.
