Blue Bell Office Renovation Complete

IMC has completed renovation of a 208,000-square-foot office building in the northern Philadelphia suburb of Blue Bell. Designed by Erdy McHenry Architecture, Arborcrest 5 will house multiple tenants in a bright, urban-like setting with a full-service café, fitness center, yoga room, basketball court and lounges.

“Office parks today have to be dynamic places with top-notch amenities,” said Rob Cottone, president of IMC Construction. “Arborcrest 5 is a stunning, Class A office building that is also healthy, sustainable and in a prime location.”

The original 2-story structure in the Arborcrest office park was built in 1970 for a pharmaceutical company. Targeted to draw innovative, forward-thinking companies, the renovation has resulted in a modern, attractive building with a rustic, industrial vibe. Leaving selected parts of the original building intact kept tons of construction waste out of landfills. An expanded two-story lobby with a grand stair clad in custom terrazzo connects tenants to the sunny central core. Full-height glass cladding provides expansive views of the entire office park, landscaping and picnic terrace.

Arborcrest 5 is owned by Spear Street Capital of San Francisco, CA and is leased by Jones Lang LaSalle.  The project team includes contractor IMC Construction; architect Erdy McHenry; interior designer D2 Interiors; civil engineer Bohler Engineering; structural engineer Environetics Design; MEP engineer Kupper Engineering; and owner’s representative Trammell Crow.

Liberato Promoted to Partner

IMC Construction is proud to announce the promotion of Robert Liberato to Partner.

Recently named to ENR MidAtlantic’s “Top Young Professionals,” Liberato has been with IMC Construction for 12 years. As a Senior Project Manager and a leader of Technology Innovation at IMC, Liberato has established a project implementation technical platform unparalleled in the industry during his tenure. A native Philadelphian, he has worked in project management since he was a sophomore at Villanova, where he earned a BS in Civil Engineering.

“He works hard, leads by example and gets the best from his team by adhering to a high standard himself,” said IMC President Rob Cottone. “He makes sure that our technology for estimating and procurement is state-of-the-art. His tenacity, resourcefulness and leadership have played a significant part in the company’s great success.”

Liberato’s primary responsibility has been with some of IMC’s most complex projects. The King of Prussia Mall is now the largest retail mall in the US due to a $150 million expansion project that he managed. This project was followed by a $150 million research and development project for Chemours located at the University of Delaware’s Science Technology and Advanced Research Campus in Newark, Delaware. The 312,000-square-foot Discovery Hub will consolidate laboratories and offices for approximately 330 scientists, engineers and researchers. Chemours is an industry leader and will be connected with the University of Delaware, one of the foremost bio-engineering schools in the country.
