Des Moines University is an osteopathic medical school in Des Moines, Iowa. Des Moines University is
the second oldest osteopathic medical school and the fifteenth largest medical school in the United
States. Des Moines University is a new client to Graham Construction. We were awarded the project for
Des Moines University in November of 2017 and joined forces with INVISION as a Design-Build team.
The first two projects consisted of approximately 20,000 sf split between two floors in separate
buildings across the DMU campus. These first two projects were designed, permitted and completed for
client occupation in 8 months starting November 2017 to June 2018. The second set of projects
consisted of another 20,000 sf of renovation also split between two floors in separate buildings with
design starting in March 2018, and the owner occupying December 31 st , 2019.
