We are a design & build firm. For us, this means we only
design what we alone will build (no bidding by others on
our designs) and we only build what we have designed.
This ensures the best possible result for our clients. We
work in three phases.
Phase 1 / Preliminary Design determines the schematic
composition of the Tensile Sculpture, including the number,
shape and approximate size of the canopies and their
Phase 2 / Final Design & Structural Engineering develops
the conceptual design and applies the realities of the
project site's loading criteria and our material fabrication
parameters. Canopies, hardware, supports, and foundations
are all engineered and detailed for construction.
Phase 3 / Manufacturing & Installation brings our clients'
investment to fruition. We demand perfection, and engage
the best materials and craftsmen to make that happen.
"Commercially acceptable" is not in our vocabulary. Each
and every Tensile Sculpture is precious to us.
