Glass and glazing in construction
Glass and its associated glazing products provide a fantastic construction material. No matter what scale of operation, from replacing one window in a house to a fully glazed high rise block, the glazing solution will have an impact on the building and its users.
The roles of an architect and specifier are therefore crucially important as the decisions they make when planning and designing the construction of a building will affect public safety.
