The ultimate in tertiary building design

The Axe&D construction system revolutionizes conventional thinking in the design and construction of tertiary buildings, from offices to shopping malls and restaurants. Their clean architectural lines and brightly lit spaces set them apart from the norm. It is well-known that a company’s premises form its first and best means of advertising. While this is a new trend, it is gaining more and more traction, and Axe&D are ideally placed to harness the full range of our expertise on behalf of ever more original creations.

Axe&D construction system

A glance at two of our recent creations, L’Onyx and Le Quartz, highlights the appeal of Axe&D’s construction system within this sector.

How strong is a timber tertiary building?

The earthquake-resistant qualities of timber construction, and in particular the "post-and-beam" construction system, explain the boom in building with timber in all sectors, far beyond the individual house. As a result, we are seeing the construction of timber towers soar towards heights of 60 m (approximately 197 ft), with new records set daily.
