University of Iowa Stanley Museum of art named AGC MO keystone finalist

We are excited to announce that the University of Iowa Stanley Museum of Art has been selected as an Associated General Contractors of Missouri (AGCMO) 2023 Construction Keystone Award Finalists in the Mid-America Class ($20-50 million category).

The Construction Keystone Awards honor firms that exhibit excellence in providing solutions to unique obstacles and challenges specific to their project, according to the AGCMO website.

Russell was selected by the University of Iowa to construct the new 86,200 s.f. three-story Stanley Museum of Art. The new construction was part of a master plan to replace or renovate university buildings damaged by a flood in 2008. 

Executing a project of this significance and magnitude required months of coordination with BNIM Architects, the University of Iowa, museum staff, and trade partners well before breaking ground to guarantee that each complex detail would be carried out with precision. 

Since officially opening its doors to the public in August 2022, the museum has welcomed thousands of visitors from around the world. 

The University of Iowa Stanley Museum of Art previously won a 2023 Master Builders of Iowa – Masters Award in the $25 MM+ category.
