Historic Preservation

Franken Construction has completed several renovations of historic buildings. To maintain the integrity of each historic building project we undertake, our team collaborates directly with the design team, the New Mexico State Historic Preservation Office, and conservation subconsultants. We initiate discussions regarding the protection of specific historic elements at the beginning of the project and utilize special coverings and construction techniques to protect and preserve historic building elements.


The design, construction, and certification of a LEED building is a multi-disciplinary effort that unites economically feasible green building technologies with intelligent design and sustainable construction practices. Franken Construction is committed to environmentally friendly business practices, sustainable construction methods, and participating in the growth of the global sustainable design and construction community. As such, Franken Construction provides LEED construction administration services for clients seeking certification with the United States Green Building Council. Franken Construction built the New Mexico Workers Compensation Administration Building in Las Vegas, one of New Mexico’s first experimental sustainable projects, and was also the first General Contractor to achieve LEED Certification on a residential dormitory in the State of New Mexico.
