A Streamlined Design
And Build Process
Designed and built against predictable benchmarks with fixed fees and systemized design and delivery methods.
Using clearly defined, fixed-fee services to guide clients through a simple interactive design process, the Axiom series by Turkel Design leverages the predictability of prefabricated building systems to control the cost, quality, and timing of your home.
Over several years of extensive research, we have created a full line of highly refined houses appropriate for a diverse range of clients, climates, building sites, budgets, and lifestyles.
Once we have helped you to select a design that suits your site and lifestyle, you will be provided with a quote and a set of specifications for your new home.
With our comprehensively designed products, you know exactly what you are getting in your home and the associated costs. Working with us through this option offers high quality design with regulated ease at the sametime.
The first steps include identifying which design is the most suitable starting point and assessing the most appropriate level of service for you by selecting items from our fixed fee menu of services. The selected design will be then be modified to suit your lifestyle, site, and budget. Using proven on-line meeting techniques and 3D modeling technology, we can work with you to customize your home, wherever you are.
Once your home is tailored to your individual requirements, we will prepare quotes for the project. This option enables customization while maintaining precision and predictability.
Design & Layout
A unique systematized method that assures the delivery of high-quality contemporary design.
Designing Your Home Using Sophisticated 3D Modelling Technology
We use sophisticated 3D modeling technology and proven on-line meeting techniques to work closely with clients to customize the design and layout of their home, wherever they are.
Once your home is tailored to your individual requirements, we will work with manufacturers and local builders to prepare quotes for the foundation preparation aspect of the project. This option enables customization while maintaining precision and predictability.
Fabrication is then started using the latest 3D Building Information Modelling (BIM) technologies.
Built using the latest 3D Building Information Modelling (BIM) technologies.
Sustainability In Design
Our commitment to sustainability informs our design, process, and material selection to ensure:
- tighter tolerances
- superior thermal efficiency
- enhanced air tightness and indoor air quality
- minimized on-site cutting and waste
- FSC certification of raw materials
Sophisticated BIM Technology
We use sophisticated BIM programs that generate information to:
- improve visualization
- coordinate and verify construction documents
- generate detailed pricing
- create precise dimensions for fabrication and assembly
- engineer the structure to conform to all local and regional codes and regulations
- guide computer controlled cutting machines to precut
and predrill custom posts and beams
Prefabricated Component Packages
Prefabricated component packages are prepared in the optimal conditions of a climate-controlled indoor environment and include all the materials required to create a weather-tight shell:
- wall panels
- floor panels
- roof panels
- architectural grade posts and beams
- windows and doors
Shipping & Assembly
Quick and easy shipping and assembly of your new home.
Ready-To-Assemble Building Packages
The ready-to assemble building components are packaged for shipping efficiency and delivered to your site location.
As soon as the foundation is ready, a uniquely experienced installation crew will provide on-site assembly services for the weather-tight shell, ensuring the highest quality workmanship and the most efficient installation schedules.
