Building Design + Construction Magazine (BD+C) has recognized IMC Construction and the project team of L2 Partridge and Trammell Crow Company for the recently completed Endo Health Solutions Headquarters with the Gold 2013 Building Team Award. Now in its 16th year, the Building Team Awards program honors commercial building projects that set the standard of excellence in design and construction, while meeting the needs of the owner, the occupant, and the community—all of which could not be accomplished without the successful collaboration of the building team. Only five projects were recognized nationally. Click Here to see the article.
IMC’s project team worked closely with L2 Partridge Architects and the developer Trammell Crow Company to foster a sense of commitment and problem solving. Although the three parties had never worked together prior to the Endo job, their combined efforts allowed the project to succeed. The 300,000-SF, five-story structure and adjoining parking deck were completed on January 11, 2013, just a bit over a year from the beginning of construction in December 2011.

“IMC Construction, L2 Partridge Architects, and developer Trammell Crow Company, with an extremely tight budget and an even tighter schedule, along with the tenant, Endo. worked tirelessly to meet all deadlines. The successful project is a testament to everyone’s efforts. IMC is honored to have worked with such talented team members,” says Robert Cottone, President / CEO of IMC.
“The Endo team of L2 Partridge, Trammell Crow, and IMC worked very well in a collaborative effort to complete not only the core and shell, but also the tenant improvement work on the project. The team was able to clearly identify the goals and objectives of the project, and to work together to achieve the best and most cost effective solutions,” noted IMC Project Director Ted Jeffries. “We always had each other’s backs. All problems were our problems; there was a culture of solutions.” This camaraderie among all parties is noted as the driving force for a successful project.
Completed on an aggressive 12-month schedule and raising the bar for future corporate campus projects, the Endo Health Solutions Headquarters serves as a shining example of what can be achieved with a shared vision and an inspired project team.
