OUR HISTORY

WHERE WE STARTED AND HOW WE GOT HERE

OUR HISTORY

Established in the Fall of 2005, Franklin Construction Limited, was formed by Franklin Development to provide an in-house solution for their construction needs. As a long time friend and business associate to Aubra Franklin, Karl Wanke was brought in as the primary managing member to help oversee and run the Construction division. Karl’s experience in asset management, capital improvements, property maintenance, and extensive construction knowledge has played an invaluable role in the continued company growth and expansion. With his past experience and leadership role, Karl oversaw all construction activities as a General Contractor and was responsible for over 4000 units of multi-family and student housing construction projects within a ten year span. These achievements covered market garden style communities, luxury wraps with concrete parking structures, and student housing communities in and out of Texas. The relationship between Franklin Development Corporation and Franklin Construction Limited’s principals spans nearly three decades and represents a true working partnership. Through this unique relationship and combined experience base, Franklin Construction Limited provides a level of quality and excellence in the multi-family market that is un-matched. Franklin Construction Limited exercises a personal interest in every project, and seeks to continue a reputation of integrity by building Exceptional Housing Communities.
