IMC’s Innovative Approach to Project Challenges
During construction, the client required flexibility about the ultimate number of floors.
A 200-foot, 115-ton gantry crane was cantilevered on the side of the building.
This allowed tower sections to be inserted, with the crane climbing as floors were added.
