HOW DOWNING WAS BUILT

Downing Construction Inc. was founded in 1966 by D. Robert (Bob) Downing. Bob started with one 8-by-20 foot trailer, one employee, and two trucks. By the 1970’s Downing built nearly half the houses constructed in Indianola, Iowa.

Since its inception the leaders inside Downing have leaned toward opportunity and change allowing it to become what it is today. What once was a successful local residential construction company has become a thriving regional commercial construction company whose reach continues to grow.

In 2019 Justin Brown and Joe Butler took over full ownership of Downing and are leading the organization into its next chapter. Justin and Joe have created an environment at Downing that attracts talent and like minded individuals to come together in collaboration and creativity, providing our clients with the best possible experience.

At Downing we are incredibly proud of our history and very excited about our future. Our team is committed and we are driven to deliver the results our clients have come to expect.

TESTIMONIALS

Downing helped us remodel an existing office building into an amazing new dental space. It is our favorite dental build to date, and everyone was so easy to work with. The customer service and follow up have been top notch. We would highly recommend downing construction to anyone in the market for a new space!
