Axis was founded on a strong commitment to excellence and honesty that is brought to every project undertaken from small renovations to complex multi-phase assignments. Axis has been honored with numerous awards and has received a platinum rating from the U.S. Green Building Council.

Our History

Axis Construction was founded more than 20 years ago by Ralph Lambert, Robert Wihlborg and Roy Lambert with the initial goal of providing superior general construction to a broad range of customers. Within four years, the company expanded to include construction management services and a new division, Axis Medical Imaging Construction, which specializes in the design and building of medical construction projects, including diagnostic imaging and radiology facilities. A few years later, Axis further expanded to include Modular Systems to accommodate our clients in the educational, commercial/industrial, and healthcare industries that require modular construction. More recently, we reached a milestone and developed a "green" construction group with LEED accredited professionals on staff. Axis Construction has become one of the leading construction management/general construction firms in the Tri-state region, with a prestigious client list that includes: North Shore University Hospital, Long Island Jewish Medical Center, City University of New York, Winthrop University Hospital, Stop & Shop Supermarkets, Lenox Hill Hospital, Metro North Rail, Staten Island Hospital, Estee Lauder, Northrop Grumman, Long Island Rail Road, C.W. Post University, Peconic Bay Medical Center, Yonkers Public Schools, New York Presbyterian Hospital, and Jacobi Medical Center.

What Sets Us Apart

An industry leader for more than twenty years, Axis is well known in the Tri-state region for superior quality, surpassing client expectations, and providing unparalleled insight into the design-build process. Our team of talented professionals has more than 100 years of combined general construction, construction management, and executive management experience with the technical skills that result in top-notch projects for all our clients. Our strong commitment to safety is strengthened by a staff that has earned OSHA 30-hour and 7-hour certifications, as well as ASHE certifications. Working as a team with our clients and accommodating specific client needs are our top priorities, as we seamlessly adjust staff size up or down in response to project size, and consistently strive to control overhead costs so we can offer cost efficient budgets to our clients. Our team of experienced project executives accurately estimate the costs of projects during the conceptual stages, and assist clients in establishing overall project costs, including soft costs, equipment costs, and contingencies. We have a strong and trusted subcontractor base that shares our values and goals. With Vice President, Frank Piccarillo as a co-founder of the Long Island Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council, Axis is committed to environmentally sound building practices and we are proud to have multiple LEED accredited professionals on staff. Our national presence was also demonstrated by the participation of Executive Vice President and COO, Peter Cannuscio, PE in the revision committee for the 2010 FGI Guidelines for Design and Construction of Hospitals and Health Care Facilities.
