About Iowa


Iowa, more commonly known as “America’s Heartland” is a centrally located state that has mild to moderate climate. Winters are neither overly harsh or overly mild meaning that depending on global climates, winters can either be hard and cold or somewhat milder. Iowa was once limited to corn and other agricultural fare but as the country has grown, so has the economy and structure of Iowa. The state has evolved to include information technology, commerce, and other diversified infrastructure. Due to the moderate climate of Iowa and the greatly diversified geography, it takes a large skill set to be able to create a building that fits any area in the state. This state has both plains and mountains and as such presents an interesting challenge to anyone working to build in the state.
