Carl Zeiss Vision is a world leader in developing and manufacturing ophthalmic lenses, lens coatings, and dispensary technologies. Norwest Contractors was awarded the construction contract for their 23,000 square-foot Clackamas facility largely due to their sound technical abilities to analyze problems and provide cost-cutting solutions that would not extend the completion date.


Size: 23,000 sf
Location: Clackamas, Oregon

Client’s Review

“We had several construction projects going on around the country, and I needed a company that could manage this job from start to finish. We were transforming a small lab space into a modern, 23,000 square-foot facility. Of the contractors we considered, Norwest was clearly the best prepared and had the most thorough bid. Besides meeting our budget, they always recommended cost-effective and creative options for us. For example, to deal with our unusual flooring requirements, Norwest came up with a great solution, which we’ll be able to use in other locations as well.”
