IMC's Innovative Approach to Project Challenges
The project had minimal design drawings, some delegated design, and verification of existing conditions. Despite extensive coordination between plumbing contractor and cold room vendor, the provided compressed air did not meet cold room input requirements.
The solution required an upgraded air compressor and additional dryer provided by the plumbing contractor to ensure adequate pre-treated air for the cold box system.
Due to the complexity of these systems, regardless of project size, IMC’s lesson learned would be to require professional engineer oversight to monitor the compatibility of MEP delegated designs.
