H I S T O R Y . . .
Masonry, the most versatile building material available, and the most challenging, led Dick Felice, Forrest & Associate's President & CEO to become involved in the masonry business. He felt compelled to pursue his journeyman's card after graduation and in 1960, along with his friend, Dale Forrest, started their own firm.

Dale Forrest, Co-FounderTogether they built Forrest & Associate into a company that has grown over the years into one of Des Moines's most knowledgeable and experienced masonry contracting firms, capable of providing quality craftsmanship and superior expertise throughout the State of Iowa.

Dick Felice, President & CEOStarting with 10 employees, building commercial, industrial, educational, and residential buildings using various masonry materials such as block, brick, stone, granite, marble, tile and terra-cotta, this company played a significant role in aiding the beautification and growth programs of cities across the State of Iowa.

Felice purchased Forrest's stock in 1993 and the company has continued to flourish. Today, with more than 100 employees, Forrest & Associate strives to provide the highest standard of total quality masonry construction and service to it's clients.

Felice has adapted to changes in the construction industry and, wanting to ensure that masonry is a major part of building design, has become part of those changes by consistently being active in the industry's organizations. While running a business on a full-time basis, Felice still finds time to serve on the board of directors of the Masonry Institute of Iowa and the Des Moines Construction Council. He also serves on various committees for organizations such as Master Builders of Iowa, Masonry Industry Council/Council for Masonry Research, Building Stone Institute, National Masonry Standards, Associated American Society of Testing Materials C15, and Mason Contractor's Association of America, of which he served as president two consecutive years.
