Our Response to COVID-19

As restrictions are lifted in the Tri-State area, we are excited to continue the progress of our projects and get our employees, subcontractors, vendors back to working in the field. With projects restarting we wanted to provide you with an update on the steps we are taking to ensure that work is being performed safety and efficiently. Keeping people healthy and projects on track our highest priorities. As the Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak continues to create challenges for families and businesses across the country, our focus is on the health and well-being of our employees, clients, subcontractors, vendors and the community. We are closely monitoring the situation and following recommendations from the CDC as well as Federal, State and County Authorities. Our goal is to maintain our project schedules while playing our role in the global effort to contain this virus.


 

While nothing is guaranteed the steps outlined below will ensure that work is performed as safely as possible while maintaining productivity on projects:

  • All site job trailers/offices are restricted from visitors. To enable project site social distancing, meetings will be held outdoors in open air settings or in large open areas in the buildings.
  • To create a more effective social distancing, work locations for all IMC employees are a combination of main office, jobsite, and work from home. We have discouraged changing work locations daily or weekly.
  • In order to maintain productivity, all employees are set-up for remote access to all applications and fully supported by our IT
  • We have discontinued all in person meetings and have migrated to tele-conferencing and Skype conferences.
  • We have stopped visitor access to our main office except preplanned and essential
  • Protocols are in place on all projects that require IMC staff each morning to verify through a series of questionnaires that require individuals to state they have not met any of the risk factors identified by the CDC.
  • Every tradesman is completing the same questionnaire and undergoing temperature testing on a daily basis. IMC is requiring every company foreman to survey each of their workers prior to starting work each day to verify they have not been exposed to the risk factors utilizing the same survey

 

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have about our preparedness.

To Our Clients and Associates

Keeping people healthy and your project on track is our highest priority. As the Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak continues to create challenges for families and businesses across the country, our focus is on the health and well-being of our employees, clients, subcontractors, vendors and the community. We are closely monitoring the situation and following recommendations from the CDC as well as Federal, State and County Authorities. Our goal is to maintain our project schedules while continuing to be diligent in the global effort to contain this virus. IMC is very focused on maintaining high efficiency and production on your project site. IMC is in regular contact with our vendors and suppliers to monitor adequate manpower and proper material supplies.

As you know, government agencies have limited certain businesses and encouraged many others to temporarily cease operations. IMC is working very hard to mitigate impacts to project schedules and operations. Currently, all projects are active.

As you are aware the approach and mandates related to containment of this virus are ever evolving, but the following are a few of the steps we have taken to keep our staff working and work continuing on your project;

  • All site job trailers/offices are now restricted from visitors. Meetings will be held in the buildings or in open air settings to cease typical close meeting quarters.
  • To create more effective social distancing, we have adjusted work locations for all IMC employees to a combination of main office, jobsite and work at home. We have discouraged changing work locations daily or weekly.
  • All employees are set-up for remote access to all applications and fully supported by our IT team.
  • We have discontinued all in person meetings and have migrated to tele-conferencing and Skype conferences.
  • We have stopped visitor access to our main office and field offices except preplanned and essential needs.
  • We have a protocol in place on all projects that require IMC staff each morning to verify through a series of questionnaires that require individuals to state they have not met any of the risk factors identified by the CDC.
  • The same protocol is being used for every tradesman. IMC is requiring every company foreman to survey each of their workers prior to starting work each day to verify they have not been exposed to the risk factors utilizing the same survey form.
  • Protocols have been established for the project teams to follow in the event we receive notice that personnel on the project have a presumed or confirmed case of Covid-19. Should this be the case, you would be immediately notified.
  • We have increased our focus on sanitizing all the high touch surfaces on the project. Where appropriate, we have added laborer staff to each project, whose sole focus is to disinfect the high touch surfaces on our projects such as entrance doors, stair railings, bathroom facilities etc.
  • We have multiple vendors lined up as a resource to perform wholesale disinfection if requested.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have about our preparedness.

Chemours Discovery Hub is uniquely designed to bolster ideation and celebrate innovation

It’s only through collaboration and iterative refinement that breakthrough technologies are realized.” When Chemours set out to design its new research and development hub at the University of Delaware STAR Campus in Newark, DE, this premise became the guiding principle. Every decision and design element—from the geographic location to floor plan—was made with collaboration in mind.

IMC Construction not only collaborated but also pushed innovation boundaries in modular and prefabricated methodologies and practices to successfully bring Chemours and L2’s state-of-the-art, sustainably designed research facility to completion. Not only was this project on time and on budget, but also it was the safest project in the history of Chemours with ZERO Lost Time Incidents.  This facility contains a 32-monitor, three-wall video discovery room in the lobby and three stories of window lined halls filled with custom labs, sculptures and various art installations and collaboration spaces.  “The Discovery Hub is uniquely designed to bolster ideation and celebrate innovation.”

We are thankful to have had so many great team members who worked on this exciting project and went above and beyond each and every day.  We are thrilled to help Chemours celebrate their Grand Opening.
