about

Background


    Axiom Constructors was founded by Richard Jessop who grew up in the trade and worked for a number of small concrete contractors. Initially focusing on residential and small commercial projects, the business quickly expanded when interested General Contractors took notice of the quality and timeliness of Axiom Constructors work.

    Richard envisioned and believed there was a better way to serve both General Contractors and employees, so he created a new company, Axiom Constructors to embody his vision. From humble beginnings only six years ago, Richard has grown the company exponentially while never wavering from his passion of providing timely, high quality solutions at a fair price.

The company is committed to conducting business in a manner that safeguards the health and well being of it’s employees, customers, vendors, other contractors as well as the community where each project is located.

Strategic & Tactical Vision

    The strategy of the company is to specialize in serving commercial construction clients and high-end residential projects in the greater Salt Lake City area. Select out of the area jobs are considered but the main priority and emphasis is on projects in the Wasatch Front.
