MBI Awards - Get Your Team Recognized!

Each year Master Builders of Iowa recognizes companies and individuals with Iowa’s commercial construction industry for outstanding projects, safety, workforce development efforts, and career longevity.  In conjunction with the annual winter conference, MBI recognizes the outstanding efforts of several companies and employees to shed light on the importance of quality workmanship and teamwork in the commercial construction industry.

Shine the Spotlight on Your Field Staff

During Construction Week 2018 (Oct. 1-5), we will “shine the spotlight” on exceptional field workers of our member firms on social media and in our communication pieces.

We are asking our members to submit exceptional field staff to shine the spotlight on them during Construction Week! We will post all submissions throughout the week on our Facebook and Twitter feeds.  We will also create a photo gallery of all submissions on our website and they will be featured in the Winter Edition of the InsideMBI magazine.  

Simply return the submission form and a high-resolution photo of your exceptional field worker to Aly Schmidt at by Thursday, September 27! Please limit your submissions to 5 individuals per company (MBI member firms only). 

Does your company get involved with local schools?

Being involved with local schools is probably the most important part of the entire Construction Week campaign when you consider that the main goal is to educate students, parents, teachers and counselors about the opportunities for great careers in construction after high school graduation.  As a contractor, think of Construction Week as a reminder to get involved with your local school districts, or even a reason to start a program for those of you that are not currently involved with local schools. 

Build Iowa Initiative

In the construction business, job sites are full of problems that need to be solved and obstacles that need to be overcome.  But what about the problems facing your company that can’t be solved on the job site? How do you remedy those issues that can’t be dealt with in a day, week, or even a year? Tackling these issues requires an overall industry perspective and a collective industry effort.
