Guardian Glass honours customers

Projects recognized at the annual Guardian Glass BEC Glazier Connection™ Dinner and Awards

Guardian Glass honoured six outstanding projects at its annual awards dinner March 2, held in conjunction with the Building Envelope Contractors (BEC) Conference in Nashville, Tennessee, USA.

“Last night was about recognizing projects that use Guardian SunGuard® coated glass and the glaziers and fabricators who helped bring those buildings to life,” said Rick Zoulek, Vice President, Guardian Glass, Americas. “These projects and their façade design showcase why glass is a preferred building material in commercial construction. We thank the glaziers and fabricators for their commitment to excellence and ongoing partnership. Congratulations to all the nominees for their hard work and dedication to our SunGuard® program. We look forward to working together in this new decade.”
