Houston, TXAxis Builders in conjunction with Mark Todd Architects were blessed with the opportunity to build back the existing 30-year-old student building that flooded due to an existing fire sprinkler pipe freezing. The scope of the work included reconfiguring walls to create a new lobby/ check-in area featuring a new check-in desk, reconfiguring the existing restroom to comply with ADA standards, updating the finishes throughout & installing casework throughout as required. Additional scope included bringing the existing electrical & fire alarm system up to current code as well as miscellaneous exterior repairs. The project was completed in February ’23.
In 2022 Axis Builders partnered with Studio Red Architects to design an aesthetically pleasing, but functional work environment that would become Axis’ new Corporate Office.
The project includes 5,300 sqft of office space & 4,700 sqft of shop on the 1st floor. The first floor required a complete gut to reconfigure the existing layout for the new open lobby with Reception desk, large conference room, the huddle meeting room, wide hallways, offices, new restrooms & an open café style break area with an open stair way with cable railing system.
The shell space on the second floor was expanded to create 4,500 sqft area for new office space, new restrooms, a 900 sqft open work area and 650 sqft. training area, mechanical room, and IT Closet.
The exterior scope included infilling existing doorways, adding windows for new offices, creating, and installing a new transom window within the lobby, creating new access doors, installing a new 16’ wide overhead coiling door to allow for additional access to the shop space, and painting all the existing metal facia, gutters & downspouts.
A new mechanical system was installed, and new LED light fixtures were installed throughout the office space, shop & the exterior of the building. Additional scope included AV, card access system as well as an advanced security & video system.
