  August 17, 2018   Check out that view!  We've got the rock anchors installed and will be moving ahead with the footings and foundations for the EMC Overlook at MacRae Park next week. Once built, the steel and concrete overlook will extend 75 feet out from the bluff, giving parkgoers the chance to tower above the Raccoon River Valley and take in exceptional views of downtown Des Moines!

  May 22, 2018   Bob Callaghan, superintendent of the Newton Community School District and Paul Koester, president of Koester Construction shake hands at the Newton Softball Field Dedication Monday night. While this marks the first professional project the pair have completed, Bob and Paul have worked together in the past - the distant past! 45 years ago, Bob and Paul were high school classmates.  The two reunited at a high school once again last night to celebrate the completion of the Newton Softball Complex and dedicate the field! This Koester Construction project included the softball field, a storage shed, two dugouts, and bleachers for Newton Cardinal fans!
