Project Overview

Ryan is pleased to serve as general contractor for the Krause Gateway Center in Des Moines, IA. The development will house the new corporate headquarters for convenience store chain Kum & Go, and an associated parking structure. Ryan broke ground in the fall 2015 and the development has an anticipated completion date of fall 2018.

The unique project is situated on approximately two city blocks adjacent to Western Gateway Park and Mary Pappajohn Sculpture Park in downtown Des Moines. Kum & Go selected internationally renowned Italian architecture firm Renzo Piano Building Workshop to design the six-story building in collaboration with OPN Architects of Des Moines.

With employee retention and recruiting a key objective, the building offers numerous amenities including outdoor work areas, a rooftop garden, fitness room and game room. The layout is designed to encourage collaboration through a unique use of indoor and outdoor space, and the building is expected to attain LEED certification.

Working on a Class A office building with a high design element requires extra care to properly install and minimize waste of expensive materials, and Ryan is certainly up to the task. Our work on historic restorations and high-end new construction projects throughout the US has prepared us well for this unique facility, as has our experience in expertly managing downtown construction sites to reduce commuter interruption and control noise and debris.

What our customers are saying

  • Ryan has earned a reputation for building lasting relationships, as well as remarkable buildings both here in Des Moines, and throughout the country.
