Tecton Centre refurbishment.

As you may, or may not know, we actually altered the building we are based at in Fenny Stratford – The Tecton Centre. It was previously The Salvation Army Hall, which was built in 1887. Many years later it became a store and workshop for an upholstery company but gradually fell into a state of disrepair. As with many old buildings, a beneficial use has to be found before anyone will invest in refurbishment.

We formulated a scheme to create an open plan studio, primarily for Building Tectonics, and also a purpose made art gallery display space. There was also room for other companies thus producing the necessary revenue to make the project financially viable. The local planning authority refused to give planning approval for the scheme but fortunately the Government Planning Inspectorate upheld an appeal, and so after many wasted months, work commenced on the refurbishment.

In 2006 Building Tectonics Moved in. Subsequently many start-up companies benefited from the beautiful environment and flexible arrangements that the Tecton Centre has to offer and in 2010 we were proud to host our first Art Exhibition. Building Tectonics Ltd are pleased to share this great space with others who can appreciate good design.
