Headquarters

A PLACE TO THRIVE

IMCO General Construction LEED Certified headquarters.

One of the IMCO shop buildings at the headquarters in Ferndale, WA.

The building has been LEED Certified by the U.S. Green Building Council.

IMCO's main office and shop facility provide beautiful and collaborative space for employees. The headquarters were completed in 2010 with the goal of providing an environmentally sustainable project and an innovative space for employees to enjoy. The open floor plan encourages teamwork. The space represents the company’s commitment to helping employees thrive by providing a healthy working environment. A leader in the construction business for over three decades, IMCO is committed to increasing green building practices across the industry.

Some of the crowning “green” system achievements of the IMCO office include: heating and ventilation systems designed to create optimal energy performance and superb air quality, a 16,000 gallon rain cistern installed underground to capture rainwater for irrigation purposes, lighting design that maximizes day lighting and views of the outdoors, and the use of reclaimed local materials throughout the building design. Waste oil from equipment in our shops is captured and reused in the boiler to heat shops 1 and 2. The building includes open spaces, an employee gym and lunchroom, and it incorporates local and reclaimed materials. The major goals of the project were to create a green building that would improve the well being of all employees, serve the community, and tread lightly on the environment.

The IMCO headquarters was designed and built by Axiom Design Build of Seattle. The project team included landscape architects from The Philbin Group, Pacific Surveying and Engineering, PAO Structural Engineering Inc, Berona Engineers, and Studio Lux.

Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO & Founding Chair of the U.S. Green Building Council said of the certification, “IMCO’s and Axiom’s LEED certification demonstrates tremendous green building leadership. The urgency of USGBC’s mission has challenged the industry to move faster and reach further than ever before, and this team serves as a prime example with just how much we can accomplish.”

"This new system sets the bar high and delves into mechanical systems, air quality, location, landscaping, energy use, environment, and transportation alongside innovation and materials, " said Heather Cashman, Principal of Axiom Design Build of the LEED Green Building Rating System.
