$100,000 in Scholarships
We are active in giving back to the profession we work in. In celebration of our 100th year in business, we established a $100,000 Scholarship and Training Fund to support education in construction. This money goes to students interested in construction management, construction engineering or the construction trades.
Scholarship programs have been established at the University of Northern Iowa, the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, and Iowa State University. The Craft Training Program is administered through Northeast Iowa Community College.
We believe in giving back to our communities through generous donations of our time, talent, and financial resources. If you would like to request a donation, please click below and fill out the form.
