The Build Sheet

  

Since our builds are as unique as our clients we will work closely with each individual to create a custom build sheet that encompasses everything needed for the project. This is the first phase of our process and serves as a working document leading up to contracting with Benchmark. 

Conceptual Design

  

The pre design stage is a fun process where we like to hear your thoughts on layout and function. We will provide you with a blank floor plan of your specific van, which you can sketch out your dream floor plan. We then work with your design and use our experience to make everything cohesive. At a loss as to where to begin designing your floor plan? Not to worry we have many preferred floor plans that we have built, tested and recommend. We then work with your design and use our experience to make everything cohesive. 

Final Design

  

Once we have dialed in the conceptual design we move into our final design process and client sign off. We develop detailed floor plans and elevation drawings which will provide you with an interactive experience of what your finished van will look and feel like. We then take these CAD drawings and use them for our fabrication process.

Fabrication

  

  • This is where the action happens and the van begins to transform. Once we have your van on the production floor we begin the process. We like to share progress photos along the way so you are always in the know. Build fabrication timelines depend on the complexity of the project.  

Delivery

Once the van is complete we make arrangements to deliver the finished product. Don't worry, if you are unable to make it to Portland we can have the van trucked to your home address.
