Tek’ton—a Greek word for craftsman, particularly in wood.

Tekton Construction was founded in 1999 to provide union carpentry and labor services to builders in Minnesota. Many of our team members have worked together for decades. Our company specializes in carpentry, interior demolition, and general conditions.

“We know what it takes to meet a client’s schedule, produce reliable work and maintain a safe, clean work environment,” says Steve Mayfield, Tekton’s Lead Project Manager & Estimator, whose 36 years in the industry makes him a trusted and sought after resource. “We are dedicated to quality, efficient coordination, and our client’s goals. We do the work right the first time.”

Interior Demolition

It takes certain skills to build things up and select skills to tear them down. We specialize in select demolition work, always taking extra care to break down what should go and maintain all that should remain. Our services include work related to:
  • Partitions (drywall, masonry, demountable, operable)
  • Flooring (carpet, tiles, wood, terrazzo, laminate, vinyl)
  • Ceilings (acoustical, drywall, plaster, metal)
  • Doors & windows

General Conditions

General conditions costs can account for up to 10% of a project’s total cost. It is imperative to plan for this cost upfront whenever possible and work with a company to manage this work efficiently. Our team works thoroughly to strategize general conditions elements and clearly communicate each step from preconstruction pricing to permits and safety. We also maintain a clean environment while working in occupied spaces. It minimizes external disruptions and mitigates inconveniences and project delays. Our services include work related to:
  • Temporary enclosures & winter protection
  • Temporary partitions & dust control
