Build Iowa Award
Skill | Responsibility | Integrity
The Build Iowa Award was initiated in 1989 as a vehicle to honor MBI members and to bring public attention to excellence in the construction industry. Each year, the Build Iowa Award is presented to a general contractor or an associate member who best exemplifies the tenets of our organization; Skill, Responsibility and Integrity. The nominees are judged by the way they have performed both within the construction community and in their communities as well.
A nominee can be an active or retired member, but membership within the organization is required. The panel of judges is made up of a variety of members at the executive level. Nominees will be judged according to contributions to the industry, contributions to the community, professionalism in business dealings and construction projects.
