Our housing and building community has suffered a great loss this week with the passing of Amy Pretorius. I served with her for many years on the Home Builders Association, and we will miss her and all she brought to the community.

Congratulations to all of the graduates and the parents who helped them through to the finish line and into the beginning of something beautiful! And an extra special congratulations to the babies (young adults 😝) and parents of our Martin Construction family 🥰.

Residential Construction Confidence Course for Women

You may have seen the article in our past newsletter highlighting the brilliant Residential Construction Confidence Course for Women, but we wanted to bring a more intimate view of the course to attention and the effects that it has on its participants with this recent video produced by The City of Iowa City Government. Not to mention give a shout out to our very own Hal Gardner of Martin Construction who serves as a Teaching Assistant for the course 🤩. In addition to empowering women with the confidence of knowing that they can take home improvement projects into their own hands, once the city-owned properties are fully renovated with the hands of these women, members of the community are also empowered with affordable housing opportunities and the potential for homeownership that may have otherwise seemed out of reach. Thank you to Kirkwood Community College, The Greater Iowa City Area Home Builders Association, and the City for this significant collaboration!

"Housing is the key to a stable, healthy community. Affordable housing sets people up for future success in all their pursuits. Housing is our foundation, and it unlocks our potential." --Andy Martin, Martin Construction, Iowa City

April is Fair Housing Month! All month long, we'll be sharing messages of support from Johnson County community members who understand that HOUSING IS THE KEY.

Check out Andy's conversation with The Englert Theatre's Elly Hofmaier on the latest episode of their podcast "Best Show Ever" (see the link below). He discusses the punk band he was a part of and how he got into construction; he has always been brilliant with making connections, as you can easily witness in the excerpt below. And as is tradition for "Best Show Ever", they discuss his favorite shows that were hosted at The Englert, Hancher, and Iowa City in general. We included a video in the comments that we recorded at one of the shows he includes, My Brightest Diamond and Andrew Bird (Thank you Mission Creek Festival!). Enjoy, and thank you for listening and continuing to support Andy and his amazing work and endeavors!
