IMC's Innovative Approach to Project Challenges
During the construction of the cleanrooms, the owner realized that he would need to access the space above the rooms for serviceability. The material had been ordered and the potential delays for revised orders could be substantial.
IMC worked with the design team, owner, and subcontractor to devise a metal-framed wall system with increased load capacity, making the underside of the ceiling a walkable surface. This solution was developed quickly, allowing the project to maintain schedule.
IMC’s ability to assess the issue, advise the owner, and get the right people together to come up with a quick and cost-effective solution was key.
