NGA Glass Conference Presents Construction Forecast and a Look at the Industry's New Normal
NGA Glass Conference concluded its first virtual event last week, hosting over 400 registrants. The three-day conference offered insights and education to the glass industry. Many of the presentations directly addressed the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on the glass industry, from the short-term concerns of manufacturing and logistics, to longer-term economic impacts.

It goes without saying that the pandemic has had a tremendous economic impact. We all need to reinvent ourselves, how we work, how we go to market, how we survive this worldwide crisis. That’s why staying connected, and identifying opportunities and ideas you may not even know you need yet is more important than ever. This year, that happens online at GlassBuild Connect. 
FTI’s month of tremendous content leading into GlassBuild Connect for a month is flat out awesome for the industry. So much learning at so many different levels. Two events back to back that are difference-makers.

Inspired by classical pavilion architecture, using Doric Order and monumental half-round column design, Capitol Towers in Charlotte, North Carolina, is a new office building combining old-world Roman influence with high-performance glazing and modern energy efficiency. The façade, designed by LS3P in Charlotte, showcases concrete pillars and a prominent glass façade, glazed with Solarban R100 on Bronze glass by Vitro Architectural Glass.

Hoping to achieve LEED certification at the Gold level, the design prescribed preferential parking for low-emission vehicles, smart HVAC and air filtering systems and solar control low-emissivity glazing.
