MII Director, Jenny Stephenson will arrive at your office with breakfast (choice of donuts, bagels or breakfast pizza) and a one-hour presentation - Initial Cost of Construction in Iowa - to start off your day with a great learning opportunity. 

About the Program
In 2016 a national study was done on the initial cost of construction of a 4-story, 25,000 square feet multi-family structure evaluating six different building materials. The masonry industry in Iowa then had the opportunity to participate in the study locally with costs associated in Des Moines. Learn about the results of the study and the initial cost to build with masonry.  The program then examines the life cycle of a masonry structure including  fire rating testing, wind testing and thermal mass.

The Masonry Institute of Iowa is a AIA credited provide. Attendance at this program qualifies for one-hour of HSW learning units. Credit will be submitted to AIA within two weeks of the program.
