DBEs Webinar

January 16, 2024

The Weitz/Turner JV Team is excited to announce our upcoming webinar designed specifically for Disadvantaged Business Entities (DBEs) interested in working with us on the Des Moines International Airport new terminal project.

The involvement of DBEs in this project isn't just important — it's essential. As we embark on the journey of building a new airport for our community, we recognize the vital importance of having DBEs represented in every step of the construction process. This will truly be a project built by the Greater Des Moines (DSM) community, for the community.

Our commitment to diversity extends beyond the construction phase. By empowering DBEs to participate in this exciting new terminal project, we hope to lay the groundwork for a more inclusive future. Partnerships on this project can extend far beyond the completion of this new terminal. These new relationships can continue to benefit our community for years to come. This webinar is the first step!
