If you’ve heard the recent buzz about a glass shortage impacting the construction industry you’re not alone; many people in the recent weeks brought the news to my attention. Specifically, there was an article in Construction Dive earlier this month titled “Glass shortage crippling commercial construction boom“. The type of glass discussed in the article is curtain-wall. Fortunately, this is not the type of glass that Transwall is using for our interior systems. We have not seen a shortage in supply nor a spike in prices and we don’t anticipate seeing one.
We appreciate those who have asked about the news and it’s potential impact on our products. As always, we are committed to producing top quality product and an exceptional customer experience.
In early April 2014, Saint Gobain | CertainTeed (the world’s largest building materials company) announced plans for a new, state-of-the-art North American corporate headquarters in Malvern, PA.
Binswanger, who brokered the lease agreement on behalf of Saint Gobain, also recommended Transwall’s LP office fronts to the project’s interior architect – Jacobs. ONE LP office front system offers a structural yet minimalistic aesthetic, accepts tempered and laminated 1/2” glass, and is available in a clear anodized finish and multiple powder coat finishes. Jacobs appreciated the minimal framing and clean aesthetic that the LP product provides.
Transwall’s unchallenged reputation for product and process integrity and responsiveness helped land the job. Transwall’s project management team worked closely with D. Fickler Construction (GC) to achieve a successful installation.
