IMC's Innovative Approach to Project Challenges
IMC needed to produce a highly complex facility within an unusually tight timeframe.
Rather than ordering pre-manufactured patient room headwall systems, IMC collaborated with trades to fabricate customized headwalls in a subcontractor’s nearby facility.
The exterior envelope of the building was similarly prefabricated from a location less than a mile from the construction site, shipped to the site upon completion and erected in seven days. The result in both cases was financial and time savings for the client.
