Story served as General Contractor for Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc.’s Ames Research & Development Laboratory in Ames. The project was a 52,100 sq. ft. building featuring a cantilever design on both ends; two levels of floor-to-ceiling windows; open concept work space; a floating conference room overlooking the main level; a green roof, and many other unique aspects. The project finished in the top three in the 2017 Master Builders of Iowa’s Masters Award. The following video, produced for award presentation, highlights the project from many different perspectives, including owner and architect.

To know Story is to understand we don’t just talk about our core values, we live them. Every day. On every project. In every dealing. We seek employees, partners and clients who believe what we believe. Because we know the more values we share, the stronger and more fruitful the relationship.
- Honest– We are straightforward and truthful in dealing with our employees, business partners, and customers.
- Fair – We treat each other fairly. We accept responsibility when we own it, and we expect you to do the same.
- Integrity – We are a company and people of our word. We do the right thing and do it well; whether anyone sees it or we get credit for it.
- Hardworking – We put in the time, energy and effort to keep our commitments and deliver excellent work. We can forgive many missteps, but not lack of effort.
- Helpful – Construction is a profession of doing. At Story, it is also a culture of helping. Our people grow, our business partners succeed, and our customers prosper when we help them in both obvious and subtle ways.
- Planful – In all our pursuits, we believe planning leads to a high likelihood of success. It is key to maintaining productive, safe, fulfilled teams that deliver.
I personally invite you to call me to discuss how Story, by living our core values, will make your next project both successful and rewarding.
