We acquired our first project in Iowa in 2001. Shortly after securing 4 projects, we opened our permanent office in Cedar Rapids in 2002. Here’s a bit more about our team, some projects we’ve worked on and why we love working here:
Jason Imhof, vice president of Iowa operations, leads our Iowa office. He has more than 17 years of project and management experience and assists in every aspect of projects from design through construction and closeout. Three project managers, two project coordinators, a risk control manager, nine superintendents, a warehouse manager, a receptionist, and forty skilled craftsmen round out the Iowa staff.
What are some notable projects you’ve helped build?
U.S. Cellular Center/Double Tree by Hilton Hotel (completed), Paramount Theatre (completed), Cedar Rapids Central Fire Station (in progress) and the University of Iowa Art Building (in progress).
What is one local non-profit organization you’re passionate about giving back to?
We have participated and volunteered with several organizations. Some of the notable organizations that we have supported recently include: MDA Lock-up, HD Youth Center Christmas Dinner/Toy Drive, United Way’s Day of Caring where we volunteered our time for Hospice of Mercy, Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center (we have hosted numerous blood drives), Iowa City Jazz and Arts Festivals and RAGRAI.
Why is it fun working in this city?
Being the 2nd largest city in Iowa, Cedar Rapids has a lot to offer for entertainment, such as the U.S. Cellular Center, Paramount Theatre, Cedar Rapids Titans (football), Cedar Rapids Roughriders (hockey), Cedar Rapids Kernels (baseball), Orchestra Iowa and Theatre Iowa. We are also in close proximity to the Iowa Hawkeyes and the lively entertainment of one of the nation’s premier college towns.
What sets this location apart from other Miron offices?
There is a tremendous positive vibe in the Iowa office. Everyone works very hard to make sure we run a great business, but the people in Iowa don’t forget to have fun too. Events like the Hard Charge “mud run” and Friday evening socials promote teamwork and strong internal relationships. Additionally, the Iowa office builds some of the most complex, intricate, and highest quality projects. Even as we have grown in size over the past 11 years, we still consider ourselves to be “small but mighty”!
