Chris Carbone, PE

Company Steward, Engineer

Chris leads the design and engineering team at Bensonwood — scheduling and managing the production work flow through the office. Licensed as a Structural Engineer, he’s ultimately responsible for the structural integrity of all Bensonwood projects. As an undergraduate at Dartmouth College he majored in engineering and minored in studio art. Additionally, with a Master’s of Science in Building Technology from MIT he has the ability to quantitatively analyze building’s energy performance and is constantly staying current with innovative construction products and techniques. Throughout his time at Bensonwood he’s been designing and building beautiful structures with celebrated wooden and steel joinery while researching and developing new cellulose based enclosure systems. Chris is also his own guinea pig; he built his own super-insulated, passive solar house which employs an early version of Bensonwood’s OB Plus wall.
