INNOVATION FOR PARTNERING & EFFICIENCY
IMCO uses a collaborative approach to teamwork, engaging in partnering sessions with clients and stakeholders, when appropriate, prior to beginning a new project. We believe in creating a culture of teamwork, respect, and proactive communication. High-trust relationships are crucial for project success.
TOOLS & TECHNOLOGY
IMCO is dedicated to technologic advancements and continually learning new ways to operate in the office and in the field. Our clients benefit with on-the-spot information and service and world-class teamwork and problem solving. Our global technology enables immediate mobilization. Collaboration and efficiency are key to the success of our projects.
IMCO is one of the largest consumers of GPS information technology in the state of Washington, offering live data reports at IMCO job sites. Benefits include:
- Instant onsite feedback that reduces waste and adds control over project schedules.
- Enhanced grade accuracy to within 1/100th of a foot tolerance.
- Computerized accuracy, for better value and lower costs to clients.
Laser Scanning & UAV Technology
IMCO uses point cloud data to improve accuracy and assist in planning and value engineering. The data procured can be combined and used from preconstruction through construction and for final as-builts delivered for projects. Having the ability to quickly acquire data for design checks, post construction, and lift plans has been key to the success of our projects. This technology is especially critical during retrofit construction.
IMCO equipment is kept in accordance to our strict maintenance programs, reflecting our standards of quality. All IMCO equipment is outfitted with state-of-the-art GPS technology. IMCO owns, operates, and maintains a large fleet of equipment, including a Robovibe west of the Mississippi. We specialize in pile driving and this piece of gear allows us to perform pile driving in difficult to access locations. IMCO is one of the largest users of Trimble Engineering and Construction Systems in the state of Washington. These systems include the most current Robotic Theodolites, Survey Grade GPS, and Machine Control Systems.
3D Modeling BIM/CIM
From preconstruction services and estimating to full models, 3D Modeling has become an integral part of IMCO’s daily operations. IMCO teams use a variety of design and construction software including Civil 3D, Navisworks and Trimble Business Center to utilize 3D models. The ability for our field personnel to work with a 3D model allows them to see what they are constructing with a better perspective, reduces the possibility for mistakes, increases productivity, and helps ensure accuracy of fieldwork. IMCO's modeling abilities translate to dramatic time-savings and heightened accuracy.
