Glass Magazine: Ramping Back Up
As the world reopens with new rules, we’re looking at a very different market than we were in January and February. While construction is down across many commercial sectors, there are still some areas of potential optimism, such as health care, industrial and education. Many forecasts also indicate that we will not hit the same level of decline as we did during the housing crisis, and that we will rebound more quickly.

For our team at HHH Tempering Resources, GlassBuild America is always a chance to connect with our long-time customers and develop relationships with new customers.

From the Fabricator: Trends Up, Down, and All Around
By Max Perilstein
The latest Architectural Billings Index results were released this past week and they came in pretty much like I expected. Still not great, and not what we had been used to, but they were better than what they were and what they could be.

Salt Lake City's Net-Zero-Energy Fire Station Earns LEED Gold with Tubelite's Curtain Wall
In April 2020, Salt Lake City's Fire Station No. 14 earned LEED Gold certification through the U.S. Green Building Council for its energy-efficient, environmentally responsible design and construction. When it opened in 2018, it was one of the first net-zero-energy fire stations in the country, meaning it generates more energy than it consumes. Helping achieve the building's performance goals, Tubelite Inc.'s triple-glazed thermal curtainwall, multi-pane storefront and interior framing systems were installed by Mollerup Glass Co.
