Our Journey

BLC Builders is the mastermind collaboration created by Mark Folgner and Kevin Tappan; proud Reno natives with a deep-rooted connection to the “Biggest Little City.” In 2020, they decided to pay homage to their hometown by establishing a company that mirrors Reno’s spirit and ambition. With a founding team boasting extensive industry experience and an unblemished reputation, BLC Builders was born.

What truly distinguishes us is our commitment to excellence. We are not just in the business of building structures, we are in the business of crafting experiences. We strive to create lasting relationships, to nurture trust, and to collaborate closely with our clients to transform dreams into reality. Our dedicated team works tirelessly to ensure that your project not only reaches successful completion but also surpasses your expectations. At BLC Builders, we don’t just bring blueprints to life – we bring dreams to life.


Our Expertise

Nevada stands out as one of the few states that rigorously regulates the scope and license limits of general contractors. This means undergoing stringent background and reference checks, interviews, and thorough financial evaluations by the NSCB (Nevada State Contractors Board) before receiving an unlimited license. In 2021 we proudly secured the highest honor – the Unlimited B License, empowering our company to tackle any construction project with confidence.

Our core specialization lies in commercial construction, where we offer expertise across a diverse array of sectors. From hospitality and gaming to multi-family, commercial, educational and childcare projects, we excel in both tenant improvements and ground-up developments.


Our Growth

Although our roots will always be firmly planted in the Biggest Little City, we continue to grow and expand. In 2022 BLC became a licensed general contractor in Montana, and in 2023 we expanded our license to include Oregon. As we look forward, we will continue to expand into neighboring regions including South Lake Tahoe and surrounding areas in California.

Come join us as we continue to shape skylines, redefine possibilities and build a future that resonates with the pride of the “Biggest Little City.”
