Our Approach

The structures around us—from residential to commercial, from large-scale to micro—profoundly affect our world. Our buildings must be sustainable and vibrant parts of our communities. They must be designed with respect and compassion. And they must be built with integrity, with vision, and with acuity. At Tignum, we build not just for today, but also for tomorrow. We work with you to create not just a physical structure, but a reflection of how you see the world. Together, we will build a better future.


The core of engineering is not calculation: it’s problem-solving. Every building project, no matter how big or small, has its challenges—but that’s what we live for. We apply the principles of design and engineering that form the foundation of our knowledge and experience to find the best solution to any challenge we may face. It’s your home, after all—we want it to be absolutely perfect. From first conversation to final unveiling, our team will guide you every step of the way.

Our design process is guided by this simple notion: the earlier the better. When you start your commercial building project on the right foot, you can avoid the many speedbumps that often plague building projects. We all know the old adage—time is money. The longer a commercial project is disrupted, the more your business can suffer. At Tignum, we’ll work with you to make the best possible decisions as early as possible. We’ll set the project up the right way and make sure the whole process is smooth and problem-free.

Industrial engineering is one of our great passions. Our founder, Jacob Kachuba, has worked on large-scale industrial projects around the world. We’re deeply committed to finding and using the most sustainable and efficient materials and designs in our work in the industrial sector.
