Three-Quarters of A Million Dollars in the Original HVAC Bid, and It Still Wouldn’t Have Made Code.
By replacing the 45-year-old boiler / radiator system with a combination of heated water and forced air, Tecton provided greater comfort, operating efficiency, and a savings of $100,000 on the installation.
Those cost savings were applied to:
• Remodeled Basement
• New Kitchen
• New Bathrooms
And the greater efficiency provides for lower ongoing operating costs.
Stockwell United Methodist Church
Blending New Construction Into an Established Design
The new sanctuary and office building, which needed to be matched to 10-year-old previous construction at two different heights.
Tecton suggested minor design changes to the architect to add an inlaid brick cross to an empty wall.
This project is:
• Under budget by $250,000
• Ahead of schedule
Through All Additions and Renovations, Services Continued Every Weekend
Renovation of existing facility. Addition to existing facility. Addition of entrance canopy.
• The new addition was masked into the original building design, so that the casual observer can’t tell there has been an addition.
• On the initial walk through (before Tecton was hired), we spotted and corrected a chronic HVAC problem that had vexed the congregation for decades.
• Tecton imported a specialty masonry product that has superior fire rating, insulation and acoustic characteristics for use in the Temple Israel project. This product, called AAC (Autoclaved Aerated Concrete), is a precast masonry product which is used in wall, floor, and roof system construction. It’s well-known in Europe but new to America. Tecton pioneered it’s use in this area.
• New design and framing roof details also solved original design and construction problems which allowed roof leaks and water penetration. This was accomplished by innovative structural framing details that did NOT require full remodel of existing roof system and saved tens of thousands of dollars.
Temple Baptist Church
Tecton Saved Temple Baptist $1,000,000 in Construction of an 8,800 Square Foot Sanctuary with Mezzanine Addition
and we were still able to provide this beautiful sanctuary. On time, and within budget.
• The original project (under a different construction management company) was projecting well in excess of $1,000,000 over budget.
• Tecton accepted the project, and identified several existing building critical conditions that were not structurally sound. The existing building became part of the scope of the project to resolve those issues before construction could begin.
• Tecton recast total project concept and orchestrated structural repairs to all come within established project budget.
• Tecton designed and delivered a sump pump system which operates “below grade.”
We’re proud of the relationship Tecton has built with Temple Baptist, despite several negative experiences the Baptist congregation had with other construction companies. Six years later they still contact us for advice and guidance.
St. Lawrence Parish

Hanging Rock Christian Assembly Leadership Center
Tecton Filtering™ Made “Reserve Funds” Unnecessary
Due to past experience, the Pastor kept monies in reserve from this project for unforseen costs and previous failures of general contractors to stay within budget.
Tecton delivered the new 10,000 square foot Leadership Center on time, and under budget. We saved money on the budgeted construction, and never needed the reserve funds.
• The Leadership Center is a multi-purpose facility/gym with an additional 3,900 square foot ready for 2nd floor classroom expansions.
• The Center is connected to an existing dining hall via pedestrian walkway.
• Local Contractors were heavily used in this project.

Tecton Construction: Deep Medical Office and Clinic Experience
Tecton Gutted and Rebuilt a 30,000 Sq Ft Wabash Valley Alliance Facility Without Interrupting Patient Services.We did a remodel downtown at 610 Main Street. That was the one that took 11 months. It was done after hours and we stayed open the whole time, but we did some pretty significant major reconstruction within that building. Tecton manages the job very effectively, very efficiently and strives to protect you as the owner. They do a very good job of managing the budget. They come in under budget. – Rick Crawley, CEO Wabash Valley Alliance
Tecton Saved Louck Family Medical Center $70,000 Before Construction Began.We already had some ideas of how we wanted our building designed.Tecton told us, “This is where you’ll save money. If we do it this way, we can still give you all the things you want, and stay within your budget. And it doesn’t take away from the quality. It will make the building stand out more and make people notice.” They opened our eyes to many different options. - Kristen Louck, Co-Owner Louck Family Medical Center
Tecton Completed Construction of Greater Lafayette Foot Care on Time, Even With Last Minute Changes.We had a surprise when we found that one of the sinks in the drawings did not exist. We didn’t realize it until we actually got into the space and spent some time there.With only five days to opening, Tecton got in there and got that sink installed. They had to go into my neighbor below’s space for access. They had to work at night so it didn’t disrupt my fellow physicians in the office. Not only were we on time, we stayed on budget. - Dr. William Oliver, Owner Greater Lafayette Foot Care
Casada Center Completed $400,000 Under BudgetThe Cascada Center is a new, two-story medical office complex.

Wabash Valley Alliance – Otterbein• Soil at site was unable to support the structure. Standard treatment for such situations is digging nine feet below the entire building, and hauling replacement material with greater bearing capacity to fill back in. • Tecton’s innovative solution was to remove the bad surface soil, and treat the remaining earth with lime. • This process saved considerable time and money.
