Project Summary

IMCO is proud to provide design-build services for this world-class company on this industrial infrastructure contract. The project provided new structural, architectural, mechanical, and electrical systems to support the installation of a new Multiple Opening Press (MOP). The logistics of this project required very careful coordination. Construction took place in the center of a one million square foot manufacturing building with crews working double shifts beside the building management office. IMCO self-performed 50% of the work on the project, including:

  • Extensive demolition, excavation, and concrete construction of foundations and demolition and replacement of 1,200 square feet of concrete slabs.
  • Demolition of existing and installation of new structural steel framing and bracing for revisions to a mezzanine to provide space for new equipment installation.
  • Concrete slab removal and replacement and excavation and backfill for new plumbing.
  • Removal of existing and installation of a new cooling tower weighing 17,000 lbs. utilizing a heavy lift helicopter.
  • Structural steel installation for new monorail hoist, utility support frame, and new cooling tower.
