Franken Construction Pioneers a State-of-the-Art Trades Facility

We are thrilled to share our latest endeavor, which involves breaking ground on a cutting-edge trades facility that will revolutionize the construction industry. As an industry leader in innovative construction solutions, we are committed to shaping the future of trades education and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. The upcoming establishment is scheduled for completion in early 2025. In total, it will encompass 60,750 square feet of classroom and lab space, serving as the home for CNM’s Carpentry, Electrical, HVAC (Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning), Plumbing, Mechatronics (Industrial Automation Technology), and Welding programs. In partnership with CNM, Vigil & Associates, and Arichitekton, we’re creating a state-of-the-art facility fostering excellence and craftsmanship for New Mexicans interested in the trades.

The Vision and Collaboration

The journey towards this groundbreaking facility began with a shared vision between several local trades industry representatives. They recognized the need for a facility to be a hub for comprehensive trades education and practical skill development. With this vision in mind, we joined forces to create a facility that would provide a learning environment and resources necessary to support aspiring tradespeople with career development.

Advanced Technology Integration

The new trades facility will incorporate state-of-the-art technology providing students with hands-on experience and skill development in a safe and controlled environment. This setting will accelerate the learning process; preparing students for the challenges of modern construction projects and help offset the demand for skilled labor across the State of New Mexico.

Empowering the Workforce of Tomorrow

As construction professionals, we understand the significance of a skilled workforce in shaping the industry’s future. The trades facility will be a catalyst for empowering the workforce of tomorrow, providing comprehensive training programs, workshops, and certifications to nurture skilled craftsmen and women.

Community Impact and Outreach

Beyond just a facility, we envision a community hub where individuals from all walks of life can share knowledge, skills, and experiences. We aim to create a ripple effect of positive change, impacting the construction industry and the community.

How We Can Help

At Franken Construction, we are driven by the passion to build a brighter future for the construction industry and the State of New Mexico. Our partnership with CNM to create this state-of-the-art trades facility is a testament to our commitment to innovation, sustainability, safety, and community engagement. Together, we are shaping the construction leaders of tomorrow and unlocking the potential for transformative growth in the trades sector. Stay tuned as we continue this exciting journey and make history with the facility that will redefine how we learn, build, and shape the world!
