IMC's Innovative Approach to Project Challenges
A major requirement for the project was maintaining existing structures and billboards throughout construction. These existing structures, at opposite ends of the project site, needed to be coordinated with new structural steel, floor elevations, elevators, and design elements.
From day one, IMC planned to capture and evaluate the existing structures with laser scanning and location-based 360o photos to review and communicate the conditions on-site to remote team members.
The laser scanner and photos identified a 2”-elevation difference between the existing structures. Significant time and costs were saved by planning and accounting for the elevation difference in shop drawings.
