Story Construction served as a bid package contractor on the Biosafety Level 3 High Containment Large Animal Housing Facility for the US Department of Agriculture  in Ames, Iowa. Work included special structural concrete work (slabs, walls and ceilings), concrete toppings, installation of all embedded specialty miscellaneous metal and masonry. The facility includes special features such as controlled-access corridors, air locks and special ventilation systems, and the surfaces of all walls, floors and ceilings were sealed to make them impervious to liquids.

Due to design delays, construction  was forced to take place during the cold winter months. As a result, Story was selected to erect an air-supported structure over the partially completed building to allow work to continue uninterrupted.
