Axis Builders was founded as a full-service General Commercial Contractor serving the greater Houston area. At Axis Builders, we are motivated in everything we do with our top four values: SAFETY, QUALITY, INTEGRITY & RELATIONSHIPS.

Safety in all aspects of our business is crucial and why we take very seriously the implementation and execution of the Axis Builders Safety Program. We will not compromise the well-being of any employee involved in any project.

Quality is inherent in how we approach the building process. Being short sighted and compromising quality for a short term gain is not an option.

Integrity is operating with good character and moral principles for Axis Builders. Maintaining an environment of honesty with all stakeholders on a project is how we do business.

Relationships with our clients are of paramount importance to us. We work together to maximize the investment value of each project for our clients based on their needs. Our vision is to maintain these relationships for decades to come. We evaluate issues as they arise, keeping in mind our clients’ needs, budget and schedule while providing them with the solution that optimizes value.

We deliver our values by:

  • Safety goal of zero incidents on all projects
  • Meeting schedules whether accelerated or within industry standard time frame
  • Providing leadership and expertise
  • Maintaining a proactive, no surprises approach
  • Being driven by honesty & integrity
  • Delivering quality & value every time
