Suburban giant responds to increase in Philly clients

Philadelphia, PA (January 2019) -- IMC Construction, a nationally-recognized, full-service construction company, celebrated the holidays at Penn Medicine’s newly constructed Center for Healthcare Technology building with the announcement that IMC has opened an office in Center City.

“For the past 40 years we have served this region with great success from our offices in Malvern,” said Rob Cottone, President and CEO of IMC Construction. “But our work in Center City has grown exponentially. This LEED Silver, design-build structure for Penn Medicine is a perfect example of a client that is expanding in the City and in the suburbs. To be responsive, we have to be where our clients are.”

The number of Center City projects has steadily increased for IMC, as has the number of IMC employees who live in the City. The new IMC office is located at 121 South Broad Street, across from the Union League and close to public transportation.

“We see Philadelphia’s growth continuing through the next decade,” said Cottone. “We are investing in the City’s future.”

Cottone made his comments at an elegant gala at the new flagship office building at 3600 Civic Center Boulevard that IMC constructed for the University of Pennsylvania Health System. Over three hundred clients, employees and guests enjoyed dinner and live music in the dramatic, glass-enclosed lobby of the ten-story structure.

Opened in November 2018, the Center for Healthcare Technology is a southern gateway to the Penn Medicine campus and an attractive, efficient workplace environment for staff. The facility houses offices for human resources, marketing and information technology, a large childcare facility, the Investigative Drug Services pharmacy and an expansion of Penn Medicine’s Bio Bank Freezer Farm.
