For the month of March, we will be celebrating the Women of MiTek – especially those representing us in construction and engineering. Each week, we will highlight women from across our company who are all essential members of the construction industry.

Kicking off this week, we have Laura Moak, a Project Coordinator at Benson, and Christy Beymer, our Channel Marketing Specialist for the Structural Framing Division of MiTek Inc. Laura walked Christy around the Spectrum Terrace buildings located in Irvine, California, showing her some of the finished work and the installation technique used with the Benson curtain wall and the SidePlate Systems connection designs on this project. An interesting thing about this project is it utilizes both SidePlate PLUS connection designs and Benson unitized curtain wall, another example of MiTek adding value and precision in a commercial environment.

Solving challenging glass demands is a Benson specialty, and our team is always up to overcome a challenge. And a challenge is exactly what the Oregon Zoo's latest expansion offered us—a brand new polar bear exhibit. Designed by CLR Design in Philadelphia, Pa., this exhibit will house polar bears that can reach up to 1,200 lbs, travel at 25 mph and, while standing in their hind legs, can reach a staggering 10 feet tall. A big challenge calls for some big glass.

The glass for this project was specifically engineered using four distinct layers, reaching a maximum thickness of 3 and 1/4 inches. Designed to withstand the strength of polar bears, the largest piece for this exhibit is nearly 3,600 lbs and is just shy of 14 feet wide.

The general contractor for the project, Lease Crutcher Lewis, has assisted greatly on the challenges that come with glass of this scale. As seen in the photos below, safety is always a priority on the jobsite and maneuvering this size of glass is but another challenge that Benson tackled.

To see more Benson projects, visit the Benson project page at: https://www.bensonglobal.com/projects/

Bonus fun fact: Polar bears appear to be white, but their hair is actually transparent; the white results from light being refracted through the clear hair strands.

Our parent company, MiTek, has done some amazing work in responding to COVID-19:

While we continue to see the COVID-19 pandemic reshape many parts of our lives, one constant has been our resolve to contribute in some way to serve those who need it most. Earlier this year, MiTek pledged $250,000 to #COVID19 relief work around the world, focusing on front line workers and basic needs in the hardest hit areas. We’re proud to support and amplify the impact of Direct Relief, The Global FoodBanking Network, Feeding America, International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies - IFRC, British Red Cross, Saigon Children's Charity CIO, the Salvation Army - South African Territory, and the St. Louis Community Foundation. Below is just a snapshot of the impact of these organizations in our global communities.

Trinity Church in New York, NY has brought Modernist design to the over 300-year-old church. Originally chartered in 1697, Trinity Church was the first Anglican (Church of England) church to be built in Manhattan. Found at the head of Wall Street facing the Hudson River, the church has expanded over the centuries and has done so again by building Trinity Place.

Trinity Place is a 27-floor, $300 million tower for community space and commercial offices. Designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, in New Haven, CT, the custom bronze painted ornamental mullions highlight how curtain wall can be both ornately decorative and high performing. With over 800,000 pounds of aluminum and 1,840 units, the 27-floor tower was engineered with added security measures on the first eight floors. The building includes substantial vertical exterior ornamentation that compliments the historic Trinity Church building just across the street.

Benson would like to take a moment to recognize one of our team members, Chad Walswick, Director of Manufacturing. Chad has spent time focused on providing safe working conditions in our Mexico facility, while also helping keep team members engaged. Recently, the breakroom received partitions to allow for socially distant breaks, but this necessary modification reduced the amount of space available for employees to use. To compensate for the lost space, he and his team fabricated an in-house designed Pergola for them to be able to enjoy their lunches outside if they wish. This is but one way the Benson team is keeping motivated and engaged. What is your company doing to keep the company morale strong?

The Air Force's Thunderbirds and the Navy's Blue Angels flew together over New York, NY as a tribute to the medical personnel, first responders and other essential workers. Below is a photo of them flying by Freedom Tower (One WTC) and Four WTC--both projects that Benson is immensely proud to have been a part of.

“We are incredibly honored to have the opportunity to salute those working on the frontline of the COVID-19 response, we are in awe of your strength and resilience,” said Navy Cmdr. Brian Kesselring, U.S. Navy Blue Angels commanding officer and flight leader. “Thank you to all of those in essential industries keeping our nation moving forward. We will get through this. We are all in this together.”

The Salesforce Tower, in the heart of San Francisco, CA, is one of the most recognizable high-rises on the West Coast and Benson is proud to have been a part of it. The top of the tower displays a video of clapping hands and prayer flags supporting healthcare workers and first responders. As part of World Health Day, the Benson Family would like to thank you for your hard work and selfless commitment to helping everyone during this time.

Part of Benson being Powered by MiTek means doing things in a bigger way--because we are part of MiTek.

With that said, our company is very sensitive to the current health concerns people have and understand that many offices are working from home. As a company, we utilize Microsoft Teams for communication between departments, offices, and countries. Because of that, our team can meet with you remotely to still conduct a meeting that may have already been planned, or help keep an upcoming project on track.

As you know, our engineering department works as an extension of your office, so we are still able to provide the level of support we always have--we just don't need to come into your offices right now. Just contact your normal connection at Benson and let them set up a remote meeting for you.

STRUCTURE magazine, a premier resource for practicing structural engineers, covered the immense complexity that went into the design and engineering of 181 Fremont. Located in San Francisco, CA, 181 Fremont was designed with one goal in mind: to build a structure that would exceed the California Building Code's mandate for seismic performance, while allowing for faster repairs and re-occupancy, post-seismic activity.

This is why Jay Paul Company, the owners of 181 Fremont, hired the multinational professional services firm Arup. Great structural design, in concert with great engineering and ex*****on by Benson, results in world-class projects that are both sustainable and built to last.

USGlass Magazine just released the winners of their "Inaugural USGlass Design Awards" and we're pleased to announce that a project we were honored to be part of, 181 Fremont in San Francisco, CA, was the winner for "High-Rise Construction."

The article in USGlass Magazine explains how much detail went into the design of this building: "the sawtooth design created hundreds of unique curtainwall units, and each had its own 3D model..."

Benson is proud of the work we do and we stand by it. That means we're also proud of the people who make that happen. Today we'd like to congratulate and celebrate someone who has spent most of his career defining skylines across the globe.

For the last 35 years, Jon Helgerson has been a part of Benson--starting as a print clerk and working his way up to Drafter, Job Captain, Engineering Manager and currently Project Manager, Jon has left his fingerprint on projects across the country. We asked Jon which project he was most proud of and his response tells you everything you need to know about him:

"I have a lot of pride in all of our projects, not just one specific project I was heavily involved in. I love to point out our work and revel in the sense of accomplishment that our product allows. There is nothing like seeing a Benson wall on a skyline, in person or in the movies."

Congratulations, Jon, from your Benson family.

When looking at Benson's excellent quality, efficiency and reliability, there's one unifying element: people. It's with great pride that we celebrate three milestones this month.

We're also celebrating Roman Sayenko and Joshua Hill, both Detailer IIs, for five years as part of our Benson family. It's the dedication and passion of our team that allows Benson to excel in our markets and look toward a bright future.

Thank you gentlemen for your dedication and passion for our team!

Boston's iconic One Post Office Square is getting a makeover! First completed in 1981, this massive project’s 41-story structure redesign will feature 775,000 square feet of available office space, as well as multiple roof decks. The redesign and all the upgrades are estimated to be completed in 2021 and Benson is incredibly excited to be part of the undertaking.

Gensler is responsible for this gorgeous, modern design and flair and Benson is providing the façade. Some of the most important aspects of our role in this project is evaluation of design loads, building movement, thermal performance, blast mitigation and acoustical requirements. Because of this, One Post Office Square is on track for receiving a LEED Gold rating.

The History of Benson Industries

Benson Industries was originally founded in 1926 as Tom Benson Glass Company and operated as such until 1959 when Alan Green Jr. purchases the company and incorporated it as Tom Benson Industries.

In 1979, Benson began pursuing high-rise, large contract projects and President Lou S. Niles was hired. Under Niles’ leadership, company sales continued to increase through the securing of larger and multi-story contracts.

In September 1982, the company bought out their shareholders, establishing Benson as an employee-owned company.

Benson Ltd. was established in 1989 to pursue work outside the United States.
