About the project
When JR Southpork Ranch was selected by The Iowa State Fairground to move into and operate a former restaurant venue at the fair, they had four months to complete all renovations and improvements. After the COVID-19 pandemic cancelled the Iowa State Fair the previous year and wreaked havoc on the restaurant industry, it was absolutely imperative that this project be completed in time for the fair. Even with abnormally long lead times and supply chain issues, we delivered the project as scheduled, ready to welcome thousands of fairgoers that were excited to experience this new venue. Careful and constant communication between the owner, Hansen Company, the design team, and subcontractors were key to completing JR’s as planned. Our experience and proactive management allowed us to hit the ground running and ensure a successful opening of JR Southpork Ranch.
