“Today, while Bensonwood is still known for its exceedingly artful timber frame homes, it is also, arguably, the most innovative homebuilder of hybrid and non-timbered, panelized homes as well. Through its fabrication of highly insulated and finished panelized assemblies, and its proprietary Open-Built® strategies that make the home flexible and adaptable to the owners’ needs over time, Bensonwood has become acknowledged as the premier designer/builder of energy efficient, high performance homes across the US and Canada. Among these are a LEED Platinum, Net-Zero residence in Maine that creates as much energy as it consumes, and a Passive House in Vermont that requires no furnace. And to make these building advances accessible to more people, Bensonwood created Unity Homes, a series of Open-Built sustainable prefab houses that offer a myriad of design possibilities while greatly reducing the design and engineering costs normally associated with such high quality construction.
Bensonwood has more than 75 people working toward one common goal: to create better homes and commercial structures for a more rewarding living experience and a sustainable future.”
Bensonwood became an Organizational Champion in March of 2016, and offer numerous health benefits at their organization.
