Overview

Project Overview

Delta Dental of Iowa is the largest dental benefits provider in the state of Iowa. To accommodate their continuing growth, the company decided to construct a new corporate headquarters in centrally located Urbandale, Iowa. Ryan had a successful relationship with Delta Dental of Illinois—sister company to Delta Dental of Iowa—that was established when Ryan constructed their headquarters. As a result of that strong connection, the Iowa team chose Ryan to oversee design and construction of their facility. The new Class A office building meets Delta Dental’s current and future space needs with room for expansion, an efficient open floor plan and a healthy indoor environment for employees.

Partner OPN Architects and Ryan designed and constructed the building to meet LEED Silver Certification standards. The facility incorporates a significant amount of natural light and utilizes a highly energy efficient geothermal heating and cooling system. Ryan delivered the building on budget and on schedule despite the worst winter, spring and summer for precipitation on record in Urbandale. Ryan also completed the Phase II addition.

  • Our project manager and superintendent were great to work with and both did an outstanding job. Considering no one on our team had ever built a building before, the Ryan team took extra time to make sure we understood and bought into all decisions. They were very professional and consistent.
