IMC's Innovative Approach to Project Challenges

Challenge Toggle Accordion Content

Verifying existing conditions on the site and communicating the plan for construction was critical to eliminating surprises and ensuring the success of the project.

Solution Toggle Accordion Content

IMC leveraged early investigation of existing utilities and structures to coordinate system tie-ins between the buildings. VDC was implemented to plan and then communicate the plan for construction deliveries, sequencing, staging, and storage.

Value Add Toggle Accordion Content

A direct result of the early investigation, planning, and communication was the elimination of any rework on utility tie-ins or structural tie-ins to the existing conditions, and zero disruption to the academic mission at Malvern Prep.
