Glazing industry award recognition
Pilkington United Kingdom Ltd has been listed as a finalist for Commercial Project of the Year in the G19 Awards for its installation at Slimming Word’s headquarters. The installation, recognised by the glazing industry awards programme, was part of an £8.5 million renovation scheme at the weight loss organisation’s Derbyshire, UK workspace.
Pilkington UK supplied low-emissivity and solar control glass to help the building stay warm in the winter and cooler in the summer, reducing the need for mechanical heating and cooling, while still allowing for maximum natural light transmittance. The shortlisting follows the glassmaker winning the category last year for its project at 6 St Andrew Square in Edinburgh.
The project was supported by fabricators Advanced Glass Facades, main contractor Morgan Sindall Construction and architects CPMG.
