Project Overview: IPCO Project - JB STEEL®

Client's Expansion Vision

IPCO, aiming to broaden their existing operations, required expert assistance in expanding their infrastructure. The goal was to create additional space that would facilitate their growth and adapt to future needs.

Tailored Solutions for Growth

As a trusted partner, JB STEEL® closely collaborated with IPCO, a repeat client, to support their expansion into two new buildings. Our approach was to develop each building as a versatile shell, equipped with base utilities for future occupancy. This foresight in planning included the installation of essential plumbing and sprinkler systems, allowing flexibility for a variety of potential tenants.

Comprehensive Services Provided

For the IPCO project, our team at JB STEEL® rendered a full spectrum of services, encompassing:

  • Design-Build
  • Construction Management & General Contracting
  • Civil Construction
  • Structural Concrete
  • Structural Steel Fabrication & Installation

These services were integral to the project's success, reflecting our commitment to delivering comprehensive solutions.

Overcoming Challenges

The IPCO project presented unique challenges, which were skillfully addressed:

  1. Complex Site Topography: The tricky terrain of the site required building up one side of the concrete slab by almost 8 feet, a challenge that was meticulously managed.

  2. Concurrent Public Improvement Project: We successfully coordinated our activities around a separate public improvement project, ensuring uninterrupted progress.

  3. Dual Building Construction: The simultaneous erection of two pre-engineered buildings, each with irregular geometry, demanded exceptional precision and coordination.

This extensive project was completed over a 16-month period, with a successful completion in October 2023.
