ISEC Inc., a national construction contractor dedicated to delivering innovative interior finish solutions through more than 1,500 exceptional trades professionals, has been named the Best Building Project – Subcontractor – Non- MEP (Over $2 Million) for their work on McGregor Square in Denver.
The ACE awards for Construction Excellence are given to projects based on overcoming challenges, excellence in project management, construction innovations, safety, and contribution to the community.
ISEC was brought in as a design-assist partner on the McGregor Square project, managing five different contracts. ISEC provided and installed the millwork package and the doors, frames and hardware package, totaling over $7 million. Successfully navigating the challenges of a congested downtown location, ever-evolving COVID-19 safety protocols, supply chain constraints, and the sheer project scope size, ISEC provided value engineering methods.
The team of 30 talented ISEC-employed installers quickly adapted to unpredictable material transportation options, impacting the vertical mobility of supplies. A skip elevator was used at the beginning of the project to tackle the material transportation to the 12 different floors. As the project progressed, passenger elevators soon became the main vertical transportation method, completely changing how our team loaded the materials for transport and impeding the amount of material that could be transported at any given time.
ISEC also built temporary pre-fabrication hardware rooms in each of the three buildings for on-site storage, assembly, and material management, allowing for minimal disruption to other trades while employing lean construction principles. Finally, ISEC managed many national and international vendor supply chain limitations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, quickly ordering material for release prior to international lockdowns and ensuring the project stayed on schedule. Thinking outside of the box, ISEC also sourced local vendors for any quick turn owner changes.
ISEC contributes its success to being a team focused on safety and excellence, overcoming multiple challenges head-on to provide true partnership on every project.
