To reflect the evolution in its product offering over the years, Oldcastle Glass is now Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope. In fact, for many years, Oldcastle Glass has been supplying products and services that go well beyond the definition of a traditional glass fabricator. Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope has, thanks to key strategic acquisitions and product development, positioned itself as an integrated building envelope supplier, with products including custom-engineered curtain wall and window wall, architectural windows, storefront systems and doors, skylights, and architectural glass. “The products we engineer are vastly different from anyone in our space – there“s no one in our marketplace that has the depth and breadth of building envelope products,” said Ted Hathaway, chief executive officer, Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope. “And no other company has the ability to engineer those products as an integrated system.” Hathaway added that this name change reflects a comprehensive approach in responding to the changing needs of the marketplace. “Our approach is consistent with what the American Institute of Architects describes as Integrated Project Delivery, which integrates people, systems, business structures, and practices into a process that collaboratively harnesses the talents and insights of all participants to reduce waste and optimize efficiency of design, fabrication, and construction. We believe this approach is the key to the future of our industry,” said Hathaway. Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope is a subsidiary of CRH plc, one of the top five international building product companies.
