Nelson Construction & Development Offices

The same large format design that encouraged generations of shoppers to peer inside of Marshall Field’s iconic windows now inspires the team at Nelson Construction & Development. After years in their West Des Moines space, the company moved its headquarters to the second floor of the newly renovated Fleming Building. Nelson has built a strong reputation for historic renovation projects, and relocating the office to a place where clients and partners could experience the work in situ perfectly compliments the company’s vision.

The massive windows, open floor plan, and 18-foot ceilings allow natural light to stream in – and ideas to flow more easily around the office.

In addition to fostering collaboration, this downtown office provides a more appropriate vantage point for observing the action in the city’s core. The Sixth Avenue address makes the Nelson office part of Des Moines’ so-called “Silicon Sixth,” its epicenter of entrepreneurial creativity.
