Mike Smalley Michael Smalley (2020 Chair)
Michael Smalley is the Preconstruction Manager for IWR North America who works with Architects, CM’s/GC’s, and Envelope Consultants across the mid-west to achieve high-performing and code-compliant enclosures and enclosure components within budgetary parameters. With over a decade in the industry, Michael believes adding value to an enclosure project starts with education and trust and transparency amongst the project team. Michael has added value through his work on a multitude of enclosure projects in the region including SSM Health St. Joseph Hospital West total enclosure vertical expansion and the (confidential) Corporate Technology Building which has recently been awarded 2017 BEC Project of the Year for Outstanding Building Enclosure Projects. As strategical growth has expanded geographically for IWR, so has Michael’s experience, including a turn-key execution of Liberty Mutual Headquarters in Plano, TX where IWR performed a significant portion of the enclosure work on this high-performing parking garage/corporate office building. Michael spent five years as an estimator for IWR North America, then transitioning into an operational role as Project Manager before filling role as Preconstruction Manager where much of his departments responsibilities overlap both the estimating and sales and the operational units. Michael holds degrees in construction management and real estate from Missouri State University.
