Successful outcomes begin here. By working closely with owners and design team partners, IMC preconstruction services specialists use advanced technology, tools, and analysis to get your project off to a smart, strong start.

We lead projects with strong preconstruction services: site analysis, cost-saving analysis, scheduling, estimating, and budgeting. We’re collaborative, proactive, and look holistically at projects from cost, schedule, and constructability perspectives. We introduce and leverage new technologies and approaches to address our clients’ needs and achieve their project goals.
