Process

  • Integrated Project Delivery
    • The American Institute of Architects California Council defines Integrated Project Delivery as:

      “A project delivery approach that integrates people, systems, business structures and practices into a process that collaboratively harnesses the talents and insights of all participants to reduce waste and optimize efficiency through all phases of design, fabrication and construction.”

      We define it as a focused, multi-disciplinary collaboration to create the best team for your project. This intense focus strengthens the design vision in all project phases, and is the ultimate in accountability – more control over every aspect of the project, including cost

  • Architecture
    • Our approach to architecture is both contextual and collaborative.

      We listen to our clients’ goals and desires, evaluate the site opportunities and shape a budgetary framework to create a design based in the poetics of form.

      Function and beauty combined.

  • Building Information Modeling (BIM)
    • This dynamic building modeling software provides our clients with the opportunity to experience their project in a virtual environment before any construction begins.

      For Tekton, BIM is a tool that allows us to construct and coordinate any and all the components of a project in a three-dimensional environment, ultimately affecting the bottom line:

      Time + Quality + Budget.

  • Project Management
    • It goes beyond being the single point of contact between the client and the guys swinging the hammers. It means combining architectural and construction disciplines into one, effectively executing the plan from design to delivery.

      It’s a 360-degree management view of the project process – scheduling, coordination, budget and timeline.

  • Construction
    • We are architects who build, not builders who design. Our hands-on approach and devotion to craft and detail always places design in the forefront and exemplifies our construction culture.

      Tekton comes from the Greek word “archi-tekton”.

      Historically, the chief carpenter was the Master Builder, who designed, orchestrated and constructed the architecture. In 1996 Tekton Architecture formed its construction arm – Artisan Builders Corporation – to realize the goal of a single-source design-build entity.
