Mike Ryan, Vice President of Preconstruction, will be a member of the IMC team for 30 years on Tuesday the 24th. In 1984, IMC Construction was a small company, but Ryan knew it was on the verge of growth and thought joining the IMC team could be a good opportunity and beneficial for the future.

As a Vice President of the company, Ryan has a variety of roles, including business development and project executive.

The Gateway Center, located just outside of Boston, was Ryan’s favorite project. At the time, Gateway was the largest project IMC pursued and after two years, the project was finally completed in 2001.

Currently Ryan’s attention has been focused on two notable projects, the King of Prussia Mall renovations and the Quarry Center located in Haverford, Pennsylvania.

After three decades at IMC, “I’ve learned almost every life lesson,” said Ryan.


Project Team Wins Gold

IMC’s project team worked closely with L2 Partridge Architects and the developer Trammell-Crow to foster a sense of commitment and problem solving. Although the three parties had never work together prior to the Endo job, their combined efforts allowed the project to succeed. The 300,000 sq foot 5 story structure and joining parking deck were completed on January 11th 2013, just a bit over a year from the beginning of construction in December of 2011.

“IMC Construction, L2 Partridge Architects, and developer Trammell-Crow Company, with an extremely tight budget, and an even tighter schedule, along with the tenant (Endo) worked tirelessly to meet all deadlines. The successful project is a testament to everyone’s efforts. IMC is honored to have worked with such talented team members,” says Robert Cottone, President/CEO of IMC.

“The Endo team of L2 Partridge, Trammell Crow, and IMC worked very well in a collaborative effort to complete not only the Core & Shell, but also the Tenant Improvement work on the project.  The team was able to clearly identify the goals and objectives of the project, and work together to achieve the best and most cost effective solutions” noted IMC Project Director, Ted Jeffries. “We always had each other’s backs. All problems were our problems; there was a culture of solutions.” This camaraderie among all parties is noted as the driving force for a successful project.

Completed on an aggressive twelve-month schedule and raising the bar for future corporate campus project, the Endo Health Solutions Headquarters serves as a shining example of what can be achieved with a shared vision and an inspired project team.

Philadelphia’s very own, University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate Design students were challenged to create buildings that acted as “urban lungs”. The designs are not only interesting but remind us that maybe by pushing the limits of the industry we can make a difference…and the Holland tunnel fumes might be a thing of the past.
