Construction Industries Division

Welcome to the Construction Industries Division

The Construction Industries and Manufactured Housing Division protects New Mexico consumers by licensing and regulating the state’s industry.

In 1983, RLD was created and in that enabling statute, CID was created as a division of RLD. The Division was established as part of RLD in 1983 and today licenses contractors in many different license classifications.

The Construction Industries and Manufactured Housing Division protects consumers by regulating the industry through policies that promote business growth, safety, and general welfare of the public. The Division strives to provide excellent customer service, every time, while:

  • Ensuring that construction is performed in a safe, competent, and professional manner;
  • Licensing contractors and enforcing licensing laws;
  • Requiring licensure for any person practicing or offering to practice construction contracting;
  • Enforcing the laws, regulations, and standards governing construction contracting in a fair and uniform manner;
  • Providing resolution to disputes that arise from construction activities

If you have any questions, or have a concerns, email or call the Division.  Your concern will be addressed promptly, and you will be informed of the Division’s findings and actions.
