Britton captures Renovation work on Historic Hodgin

Britton Construction was awarded a $1.3 million contract this month to up-grade Hodgin Hall, the oldest building on the University of New Mexico campus. Dating to 1892, Hodgin Hall serves as the Alumni Center. The remodel will include upgraded mechanical and electrical systems. The work is scheduled to commence in March and take about eight months. Hodgin is located in the far southwest corner of the university's main campus.
The UNM Alumni Association has moved out of Hodgin Hall into office space next to the UNM School of Law at 1117 Stanford NE while the renovations are under way.
The project was heavily bid, with eight other contractors in the running. UNM continues to update its campus, and during the recession, it has been a welcome source of work for construction firms.
Britton was active in the Castetter Hall Gold LEED-certified remodel, which included a 6,000-square-foot greenhouse on its rooftop.
