Estimating Training & Graphic Design Assistance

The Construction Management and Technology (CMAT) Program at Iowa State University has developed two opportunities for Iowa DOT DBE Contractors. On Friday May 19th there will be a training day on construction estimating to be held from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the Institute for Transportation in Ames, IA. I would encourage all DBE Contractors to attend. Click here for more information and to register.

Also CMAT has developed a program to assist DBE firms create a logo and associated graphics for their company. Design students from Iowa State University would be teamed up with DBE companies to design a logo for their company. A logo will help identify a company to the rest of the industry and public whether it is on letterhead, quotes, pickup trucks or emails. This service is free to Iowa DBE firms.

This is just one of the programs to be offered by CMAT to assist Iowa DOT DBE contractors. Program director is:
