WHY WE CREATED UNITY
Unity combines state-of-the-art technology and machinery to build homes that are healthy, comfortable and durable. Our homes are so energy efficient that achieving net-zero operation – producing as much energy as they consume—is typically straightforward. Since 2012, we’ve built nearly 100 homes in the Northeast and beyond. We look forward to introducing you to Unity’s “Better Way to Build.”
Unity’s mission is to improve the lives of our clients, our partners and our team members by building homes that are high performance, low energy and minimal impact. By doing this using innovative off-site construction methods, we provide the housing industry with a new paradigm for home building—a Better Way to Build.
Unity founder Tedd Benson has said that of all the things he’s built, he’s most proud of the companies Unity and Bensonwood. Unity’s team members share a passion for building high quality homes, and they are committed to doing so in ways that serve our clients well.
When Unity was founded in 2012 as a spinoff of Bensonwood, it benefited from Bensonwood’s 40 year history of using off-site construction methods to build homes that are healthy, comfortable, durable and beautiful. Since then, Unity has been creating its own history. We list many of the highlights in our timeline.
