IMC Design Build System

As a single resource and trusted partner, IMC manages through all phases of a project.

Project Definition

Design professionals host meetings and workshops to identify project scope and client goals. Communication plays a vital role in defining project parameters, streamlining problem-solving, and establishing total team enthusiasm.

Schematic Design

Preliminary design documents are developed along with cost estimates and preliminary schedules. IMC assists with identifying long-lead items to prevent delays, procuring consultants, and obtaining land development and zoning approvals. Preliminary phasing and logistics plans are created to ensure quality and safety.

Design Development

The IMC team’s experience allows us to value engineer and analyze cost savings continually as design documents are developed. We work with the design team to verify and approve the aesthetic, architectural, engineering, and functional implications and considerations of product and system choices. We review with the project team, to show you the total cost implications for every design decision.

GMP

IMC finalizes the construction budget based on a quantity survey of
completed drawings and specifications and presents a final price and scope report. This report includes complete scopes of work, allowances for expected costs, fees, general conditions, insurance, and appropriate contingency.

Construction Phase

IMC provides management oversight of all required general contracting activity. We spearhead and complete all aspects of the construction phase from commencement to final occupancy. As design-builder, IMC assumes the role of facilitator with regard to coordination and interfaces with consultants who may be hired by the owner.
