Neumann Brothers, Inc. is tying two existing structures in downtown Des Moines, Iowa, together with a third new one for EMC Insurance Companies.

Since 1912, Neumann Brothers, Inc. has been changing the skyline of Des Moines, Iowa. “There is literally not a block you can walk in downtown Des Moines that you can’t see a building our company built at some point in our history,” Vice President of Business Development Ted Brackett maintains.

The latest addition to Des Moines’ downtown is a 106,000 square-foot, four-story structure Neumann Brothers is building for EMC Insurance Companies that complements the company’s two other structures. A 19-story skyscraper on the site was built by Neumann Brothers in 1996, and the nine-story corporate headquarters has been on the site for more than 40 years.

Teamwork is critical for Landis Construction Co. LLC. The general contractor has “the right mix of driven and dynamic project team members and subcontractors to keep the job on track and bring it in with a timely completion,” Chief Construction Officer Kyle Condon says.

The company is bringing that mix to a project for Slumber Corners NOLA LLC in which it is converting the Rault Continental Center in New Orleans into the Joie de Vivre Hotel. Landis Construction won the $21 million project in February 2015 and aims to complete it this October, he says.
