Although its work has occasionally taken IMC from one coast to the next, its core clients reside in the Greater New Orleans area. It is here, within this vertical market, that IMC has established and maintained decades-long relationships, delivering outstanding products to architects, civil engineers, contractors and owners. The stability and loyalty of so many IMC relationships have not occurred without good reason. This is a team with the design and consulting advantage that knows how to bring the proper engineering disciplines together. Because of its experience, it understands the importance of gathering information and coordinating this information with other design professionals and owners. Only through these efforts - proper planning, smart design and the coordination with all members of the design team - does the outcome become a superior design product.
