Building a Strong Legacy

In 1986, Frank Avena picked up his first piece of drywall and immediately recognized he had a knack for building.

He fostered this passion and honed his construction skills working for a commercial drywall company prior to launching his own business on the side.

In 1992, Avena partnered with the Timonium, Maryland-based MacKenzie Commercial Properties & Construction Company. Almost a decade later, he purchased 100% of the company, and Avena Contracting, LLC, officially opened its doors for business.

Today, our commercial interior construction company serves more than 50 clients throughout Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and North Carolina, and continues to build upon its impressive foundation.

The Secret to a
Solid Infrastructure

Now president of his own company, Frank believes that providing swift solutions to customer problems is key to Avena Contracting’s continued success.

As a commercial interior construction company, we leverage our vast experience and construction know-how to deliver impeccable results spanning all aspects of the trade, from drywall to carpentry and beyond.
