Guardian Glass honored the glaziers and fabricators of six commercial projects at its 5th annual Commercial Project Awards event on March 28. More than 50 recently completed projects were nominated.
“Guardian Glass is privileged to recognize these outstanding commercial projects from our glazier and fabricator partners,” says Rick Zoulek, executive vice president. “Glaziers and fabricators play an integral role in taking an architect’s glass vision to reality, so we are grateful for the opportunity to partner with them on these amazing projects.”
“We look forward to continued collaboration in 2022,” Zoulek continues. “Our team is committed to delivering the product solutions that will deliver the next round of exciting new projects.”
