Since the beginning of this organization in 1912, the Master Builders of Iowa has had a presence in Des Moines, both from an operational standpoint as well as our advocacy at the Iowa Capitol. However, for the last 50 years, our headquarters at 221 Park Street has been the central place for operations. Though the neighborhood around the building has dramatically changed, MBI has remained a fixture in its commitment to members and to Iowa’s commercial construction industry. On August 1, 1968, the Certificate of Occupancy was issued to MBI and 50 years later this headquarter office continues to exist to serve the MBI membership. To commemorate the building’s half-century mark, MBI is hosting an open house for all members to join in on the celebration on July 10th from 3:30-7:00 pm. There will be complimentary food and beverages provided by local vendors, but most of all there will be construction camaraderie for all MBI members to share.
