Iowa Insulation was the recipient of the 2006 ABC of Iowa Excellence in Construction Awards, Specialty Category for the USDA BSL-3 Ag Large Animal Facility in Ames, Iowa. This 157,000 square foot facility was a $70,000,000.00 project and contains nearly 52,000 square feet of high-security, high-biocontainment lab areas. The owner is the United States Department of Agriculture and this project is a key part of the $460 million expansion done in Ames, Iowa.

Supervisor for our project was Jason Hast, and sixteen of our employees worked on this job. Mechanical contractor was ACI Mechanical, Ames, Iowa and their senior project manager was Don Sienknecht. On site management from ACI also included Monty Muller and Chris Kayser.

The following is a letter of recommendation from Don Sienknecht, ACI Mechanical, Inc.

Dear Darrell,

As the project is entering into the final check out stages ACI Mechanical is looking back at what made this project successful, and needs to recognize Iowa Insulation as a key player. The 'Iowa Insulation Team' made the commit prior to starting the project that they would staff the project with the proper materials, manpower and equipment to do quality work and complete the project on time, and that is exactly what you did. It was a pleasure for ACI to work with the Iowa Insulation Team on this project, as they were involved with maintaining the construction schedule, and installing top quality work in a safe and responsible manner.

Working with a quality company like Iowa Insulation, made this a successful project for all parties involved. ACI would like to thank the Iowa Insulation Team for their commit to the project and for completing quality work as a member of this construction team.
