Enlarged View of Microprocessor


IMES personnel have the expertise to perform programming and facilities planning for new and retrofit projects. The most critical element to a successful project begins with assembling a team of professionals who are experienced in the planning, programming, layout, design and construction administration of advanced technology manufacturing facilities. Comprehensive experience with new and retrofit projects for the Advanced Technology industry enables IMES to offer engineering services to meet the Client’s most demanding requirements.

IMES has developed extensive experience in the design of semiconductor wafer fabrication process facilities. IMES depth of understanding and knowledge of the design of these types of systems essentially eliminates construction related field installation and system startup problems.


Laboratory & Manufacturing Environments


We provide design services for the biotech, pharmaceutical and life sciences industries. At whatever level of engagement our services meet, and in most cases, exceed the stringent FDA, Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP), USP standards, and local code regulations.

IMES personnel have experience with many types of laboratories, including biosafety labs, pharma dispense and sort areas, USP RO water systems, etc.

Our staff have experience with many facilities including Amgen, Introgen, Kimberley Clark, etc.


Solar Harvesting Array


Photovoltaic systems are increasingly common place, but the engineering required to bring your PV project success needs a special touch. Our experienced engineers can help you guide your photovoltaic project from concept to construction. We will help you develop your site and prepare energy production models allowing you to realize the benefits of this abundant source of free energy.

We can assist you with optimizing the plant through selection of modules, inverters, racking technologies, and balance-of-systems components that are well suited for your commercial rooftop or ground-mounted utility system. We can help you analyze existing infrastructure at your site to ensure a cost-efficient and code-compliant interconnection.

The documentation our licensed engineers prepare for your project will be the vehicle that drives your project through the bidding, permitting, construction and commissioning phases of your PV project.

Smart Community

Repurposed Site

Smart Cities / Smart Communities / Smart Homes

The primary goal for a smart cities development is to meet the needs of all its citizens through implementation of technology to drive efficiencies. We recommend a holistic approach whereby a true smart city must start with a blueprint to address basic needs such as energy, water, environment, communications, quality of life and emergency preparedness and any other need that is deemed necessary by the citizens. The technologies listed below in construction, design, energy management, water saving, internet of things (IoT) and smart appliances that we integrate into a development are representative of our varied capabilities.

Our in-house team of experts have many years of experience, a high level of professionalism, and cutting edge building experience to bring a more affordable home at both lower initial and lifecycle costs, green and energy efficient components to enable a higher quality and cheaper living, while shortening the construction duration substantially to streamline the move-in process for the many families seeking a home.

The following technologies can be integrated into any SMART development:

• Hybrid Concrete/Steel Building Technology

• Cold Formed Steel Building Technology

• Advanced thermal wall and roof system

• Advanced building foundation design

• Efficient dwelling floor plans

• Geothermal Heating and Cooling System

• District Geothermal Heating and Cooling system

• SMART Building Energy Management System

• Solar Thermal Water Heating System

• Photovoltaic Electric System

• Innovative LED lighting systems

• Integrate green spaces into the project and utilize a green building rating system
