AbsoluteDSM.com was launched in August 2004. It is the creation of web page administrators, Ryan Moffatt and Josh Garrett. The site was created to discuss the amazing construction and development underway in the rapidly growing Des Moines, Iowa metropolitan area. Showcasing Des Moines' architecture and built environment through photograph became an obvious inclusion to the site, that will eventually grow to include many cities across Iowa. AbsoluteDSM.com is intended to fill a niche in the Central Iowa web community, by providing a source of information and a format for discussion regarding the construction projects and development of the region.
