Atco Higgott Kane case study
Client: Atco Higgott Kane
Address: 260 Holiday Inn Drive, Cambridge, Ontario, Canada
IMT was asked to provide a cost effective modular solution by its dealer to present to Atco Higgott Kane as a comparison to other manufacturers of modular walls.
Project Criteria – price, cost of down time and overall design. The client was adamant that the office must be able to function effectively during the renovations.
The project was not a typical installation with multiple bulkheads throughout the space. IMTs flexibility to conform to any site condition gave us the upper hand. We won the project for a number of reasons:
- Being able to provide full access to the client while the installation was proceeding
- Bulkhead scribing was completed early in the process so that trades could continue working in areas as needed
- IMT finishes provided met or exceeded their original RFP request
- Disruption was kept to a minimum by providing clear access for electrical/data sub trades during installation
- Phasing allowed the minimum number of staff being asked to relocate during the installation process
Roughly 400 linear feet of Glass and solid demountable walls with 16 frameless glass pivot doors.
During the pre-production phase, IMT’s initial site measures located, plotted and determined the various ceiling height conditions to be addressed in the production package. The widths of each office and window bay were also taken into consideration to accommodate the operable windows of the building. Once all the details were confirmed and dimensions plotted, IMT put the order into production.
IMT provided full management and trade coordination of the install by erecting the original frame work off hours and working alongside their electrician/data provider to install all the voice and data needs prior to closing the cavity. We provided all factory power/data cut outs in our panels in the elevations as per the client’s sign off of the production drawings.
The installation of the skins, accessories, and trims occurred during regular work hours with all of the client’s staff working with little to no displacement.
The total installation took place over a 5 day period while the client maintained full use of their offices and resources.
Environmental consciousness for choosing a wall product should be based on four major criteria:
- Choose a product that lends itself to change and modification with minimal waste generation.
- Choose a product that incorporates a substantial recycled content and that can be broken down into its constituent recycled components at the end of its lifecycle.
- Choose a product that minimizes the environmental impact of freight systems used to transport the components to site.
- Choose a manufacturer that is dedicated to the environment in all aspects of manufacturing.
- Travel distance of manufacturing location.
IMT has a strong commitment to support and protect the environment. At IMT are one of the few companies that has chosen to produce walls only, and have designed a completely sustainable, environmentally conscious product. Our product was deliberately designed with the minimalist approach with a system that is built to last with the lowest material use/weight, minimizing our environmental impact.
The use of any Modular wall system is a major endorsement for the environment. The simple fact that when non-drywall based system is used the components can be re-used with little to no waste generated. All these type of products have the same claim to fame but only IMT can support with 3rd party verification, the our product has the highest STC rating in the market and
All IMT components can be demounted, moved, re-cut or recovered with 98%-100% reusability. Our philosophy uses the 3 “R’s” of environmental stewardship– reduce, reuse and recycle.
All our products have been engineered with the environment in mind. Our CADCAM design process as developed our system to minimize waste. The key in our design allows for parts to come together easily and with the exception of some directional parts, be reused in any position the new layout may require. Our system can be reconfigured without tools, inventories easily and can easily be re-installed.
IMT product has been referred to as “Lego for Adults” by our installation crew and when all the parts are laid out, it’s easy to see why.
All the posts are laser punched to show the correct direction for installation so that leveling is easy and vertical spacing is consistent across the project. Each corresponding horizontal support locks the post in position and automatically aligns each skin to each side.
Installation and reuse results in no airborne dust and no construction waste diverted to landfill.
Reusable parts can maximize LEED ratings for “daylight and views”, “Innovation in Design” while providing superior acoustic properties.
Our product is easy to knock down and reposition and we can prove it. We don’t just say it’s easy to move – we did it ourselves! All the product in our current showroom was moved, reconfigured and expanded from our previous location. As we grow, so does the product configuration options in our offices. Sample panel parts are quickly removed and replaced when a client comes to the showroom. In fact, we encourage you to come and try for yourself!
94% of the raw materials used by IMT are produced from partially recycled materials, with any waste put back into recycling:
- All steel structural components of the system are manufactured from a minimum of 8% post-consumer recycled content, and 33% post-industrial recycled content.
- Aluminum components are made from a minimum of 13% post-consumer recycled content, and 48% post-industrial recycled content.
- Wood claddings are made from a minimum of 3% post-consumer recycled content and 33% post-industrial recycled content.
Marigold Industries (our Wood and Aluminum recycle partner) reviewed our process and confirmed that minimal waste is generated from our plant.
IMT components support the “cradle to cradle” strategy. All our products are locally sourced and recycled. Water use in our production line is non-existent. Powder coated paints are 99 – 100% recycled within the paint booth. Our substructure is manufactured fire rated and certified by an independent 3rd party which meaning it’s the least likely to promote off gassing in the event of a fire. Fasteners are universal and readily available from multiple sources and are fully recyclable. Our Green Certified backer boards can provide additional LEED points. Even the EPDM rubber strips are ground up and used in the creation if flexible ground cover for outdoor playgrounds and indoor safety tiles.
At IMT we will continue to improve our design and research new materials to ensure we can deliver an aesthetically appealing, eco-friendly, wall solution that is the most flexible and affordable in its category.
