Our Foundation

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 longtime business associate and friend of Aubra Franklin, Karl Wanke was brought in as the primary managing member to help oversee and run the construction division. His experiences in asset management, property maintenance, capital improvements, and general industry expertise proved invaluable in continuing company growth and expansion. The relationship between Aubra and Karl 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 multifamily market that is un-matched. Exercising a personal interest in every project, FCL seeks to continue a reputation of integrity by building Exceptional Housing Communities.
