Owner & Visionary
As an avid environmentalist, Christopher Bently insists on nothing less than exemplary green operating practices in all of the Bently Enterprises companies.
His most recent project was the renovation of the Second Farmer’s Bank in Minden, NV. This building is applying for LEED Platinum certification, which would make it the sixth non-residential space in the Silver State to have attained the highest possible certification.
Christopher is no stranger to historic building renovations. In 2001 he purchased an art deco building on Union Square and renovated it to LEED Gold EBOM standards. In 2005 he purchased the former Federal Reserve Bank Building of San Francisco, and renovated it to LEED Silver CI standards. Finally, the recent office renovation of the Bently Holdings corporate offices in San Francisco earned all possible points for its LEED Platinum certification.
I see no sense in building new structures when we have beautiful historic properties left abandoned. We need a sense of tradition and worth brought back to our culture. A disposable world just won’t do.
