ZEISS, an international leader in technology, operates in many technological fields including industrial metrology. The goal of this project was to consolidate several technology, design, and manufacturing facilities throughout Southeast Michigan into one centralized location. In June, we held the topping out event for the new ZEISS state-of-the-art facility.
Ideal Contracting was awarded the contract by Christman Constructors to self-perform the erection of approximately 500 tons of structural, miscellaneous, and ornamental steel. Scheduled to be completed in September, the contract also includes architectural wood columns containing stainless steel cap and base connections. The wood columns were value engineered by the Ideal team which resulted in saved time and money for the customer. Overall, the envisioned architectural look was able to be successfully obtained under budget.
