The IMC Construction team at the Philadelphia Heart Walk

ts tagline “Improving Lives and Environments” relates not only to the significant commercial, healthcare, and institutional projects built by IMC Construction but also to its philanthropic activities. Through the IMC Charitable Foundation and the personal commitment of every staff mem- ber, IMC Construction puts its philanthropy into action. IMC contributes to com- munities through outreach, education, sponsorship, and fundraising. Meeting space at the corporate headquarters in Malvern, PA, is available at no cost to non-profits to host board or committee meetings. Over $400,000 has been dis- tributed through the IMC Char- itable Foundation with more than 130 non-profits impacted. In 2016 alone, the foundation supported the Chester County Food Bank, Chester County Futures, Walnut Street The- atre, Westtown School, CASA Youth Advocates, Wings for Success, Good Shepherd, and Mom’s House, among others. IMC’s annual golf outing – 2016 marked its 13th year – attracts the participation and support of vendors and colleagues in the industry. The IMC Charitable Founda- tion also coordinates activities in which the entire firm can I SECAUCUS, NJ — DMR Architects has added 10 new team members in 2016—near- ly a 33% increase—in response to its 30% growth in billing over the same time period. The latest additions are Daniel Salazar as project manager, Jeffrey Ingerson as project architect, and Ariel Rodríguez Díaz as architect. Daniel Salazar joins the project management staff and is currently managing public

– and does – participate. This year, IMC was the present- ing sponsor for the American Heart Association’s Philadel- phia Heart Walk on November 5, and CEO Robert Cottone served as Heart Walk Chair. IMC Construction had 100 percent employee participation in the walk, a first for a present- ing sponsor. The event raised $2 million, which exceeded the 2015 total. “We want to use our charita- ble giving to help and empower those in the communities where we live and work,” said Cottone. “It comes from the heart of our employees and their personal interests. It isn’t mandated; it is ingrained in our culture and mission.” IMC production coordination Kelsi Pflueger participated in the Heart Walk. She person- ally raised over $1,100 and her team raised over $5,000. IMC’s philanthropy influenced her decision to join the company five years ago. “Philanthropy and community service are very important to me because I am fortunate enough in my life to be able to give back,” Pflueger said. “It’s both humbling and eye opening to see the change a little philanthropy can do for the community.” Pflueger adds that she’s long been committed to helping others, with involve- sector projects in Hackensack. Daniel brings 30 years of ex- perience to the firm, having gained experience at firms across the country. Jeffrey Ingerson gained his nearly 15 years of experience at firms in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut, working on residential, corporate interi- ors, retail and fitness/wellness center projects. At DMR, he is supporting projects in the resi- dential sector, a growing sector

ment ranging from dog walking at the SPCA to volunteering as a YMCA tutor. Pflueger’s personal volun- teering commitment exempli- fies how others at IMC feel about service. The company encourages them. Through the IMC Volunteer Program, employees may plan and take up to three paid days away from the office each year to per- form community service. IMC director of employee relations Devon Dietrich says that nearly 70 percent of employees participate in the program, contributing an average of 400 hours of volunteer time. Dietrich has personally vol- unteered at the Chester County Food Bank, Youth Mentoring Partnership and with Habitat for Humanity. “It is one thing to talk about getting involved in the community and volunteer- ing, but our staff really does it because it means something to us,” she said. “For us, it is really about keeping a balance between work, family, and our community, and I attribute that vision to our CEO. When you have a healthy balance of all three, I feel it allows you to do your best in all aspects of life.” Amanda Gibney Weko is a principal at AGW Com- munications. n for the firm that is currently designing more than 600 new units at several projects across northern New Jersey.
