ST. LOUIS, MO — IWR North America announces the addition of Joel Reed to its team as a Project Manager, primarily focusing on metal construction projects.

Reed brings a diverse and comprehensive background in the construction and industrial sectors, with significant expertise in project management, safety management, and estimating. His experience spans over two decades, with an emphasis on sheet metal projects.

Prior to joining IWR North America, Reed worked at Kuenz Heating and Sheet Metal, Missouri Builders Services, and United States Steel, where he honed his project management and technical skills. His diverse responsibilities ranged from estimating architectural and fabrication projects using advanced software, to hands-on technical work like wiring and troubleshooting control circuits. Reed managed project lifecycles, involving detailed submittals, drafting, material logistics, and manpower scheduling. His role also encompassed critical safety oversight, coordination with general contractors and superintendents, and direct customer engagement for fabrication and installations.

Notable projects under Reed's leadership include work on sites such as the U.S. Silica, Washington University’s South Danforth Campus, and a major Boeing expansion project.

"We are thrilled to welcome Joel Reed as Project Manager, reinforcing our metal construction division where IWR's excellence parallels our nationally renowned glass and glazing work," said Jim Ryan, Senior Vice President of MHS Legacy Group, parent company of IWR North America. "Joel's impressive metal construction expertise aligns perfectly with our commitment to providing exceptional self-performed building enclosures, bolstering our position as industry leaders in both domains."
