Get Glazing Right from the Get-Go
By Terry Carespodi
Nominal differences in glazing thickness can impact multiple aspects of installation, as well as the overall performance of a structure. Overlooking small details can lead to a cascade of issues down the road. So how do we avoid this situation?
From the Fabricator: It's for Glaziers Too!
By Max Perilstein
I had someone tell me they are not coming to GlassBuild America because, “GlassBuild is a machinery show and there’s nothing for the glazier.” That threw me, because I know better: yes, machinery has a big and impressive part, but there is so much more to it, and for the glazier there’s a massive amount of growth and opportunity waiting at every turn.

707 Fifth Office Tower Offers an Attractive, Energy-Efficient Workplace
The new 707 Fifth "AAA" office tower in downtown Calgary, Alberta, features a distinctive, curved glass appearance with high energy-efficiency and a comfortable interior, say officials. In spite of the cold climate, the 27-story, 564,000-square-foot building met its energy targets, due in part, to the use of Technoform's TGI Spacer M in the triple-glazed, curtain wall system. The project is designed to achieve LEED Gold certification through the Canadian Green Building Council.
