Guardian Glass North America recognized fabricators and glaziers of seven commercial projects at its Commercial Project Awards event on March 6, 2023, in Las Vegas.

The nominees were grouped based on location. The six winners were selected by judges representing the glass industry as leaders of trade publications, conferences and associations. More than 40 recently completed projects were nominated.

“It’s our pleasure to highlight their hard work, which is critical in bringing the architect’s glass vision to reality,” says Rick Zoulek, executive vice president. “We’re grateful to partner with glaziers and fabricators on all the projects we’ve worked on in the last year and to spotlight this year’s Commercial Project Award winners.”
