IMC’s Innovative Approach to Project Challenges

Challenge Toggle Accordion Content

The large scale of the project, coupled with a tight labor market, drove an innovative, collaborative approach to deliver this platinum facility, and to exceed the expectations in safety, quality, and speed to market.

Solution Toggle Accordion Content

An innovative bid package structure was developed to engage multiple subcontractors and reduce the volume for any one contractor. The central utility plant, large rooftop units and interior panels were prefabricated elsewhere and shipped to the site.

Value Add Toggle Accordion Content

Multiple subs reduced the risk of a stretched labor market, and prefabrication moved 70,000 labor hours off site, saving the project 3.5 months. Both of these led to an enhanced quality of work and the safest construction project in the history of Chemours.
