IMC’s Innovative Approach to Project Challenges
The project employs four structural systems: Wood Frame, Concrete Frame, Steel Frame & Deck, and Steel Joist on Light Gauge. The construction method, subcontractor, and schedule for each differ. Careful planning would be required to connect the systems.
Rather than pushing the burden of coordination onto the subcontractors, IMC used VDC to share the location of each structural system and involved the subs in detailed meetings to review intersections points and requirements for the systems.
Significant savings in time and costs were realized due to shared information and regular communication among subcontractors. BIM models and collaboration ensured that the structural systems made smooth transitions within the finished product.
