Custom Structures

Tectoniks custom structures represent the pinnacle of portable architectural design and manufacture as a browse through our awards section, featured projects and client testimonials will demonstrate.

When creating custom structures our methodology revolves around active collaboration with the client. We endeavour to explore and develop new concepts using a variety of tools including CAD visualisation and animation to ensure that the design of a structure grows from a shared understanding of the requirements it must satisfy.

Our structures undergo rigorous structural evaluation using a variety of techniques, including advanced finite element analysis, backed up with extensive testing of prototypes and key components.

Cutting patterns are then generated using software developed by our own engineers before being transferred to our computer controlled fabric cutter. The automation of the patterning and cutting processes greatly shortens lead times and permits increasingly complex forms to be achieved with ease.

All our structures are manufactured using the latest fabrication equipment at our UK factory, giving us complete control of quality and production schedules.

We are committed to creating quality structures which exceed our clients' highest aspirations by marrying visual impact and engineering excellence with an understanding of economic reality and tight timescales

We offer a complete service from design and build through to installation, training and ongoing support. Just contact us with your requirements and our team will guide you through the exciting process of developing something totally unique.
