New glass award

Flat glass designers, manufacturers, and architects are invited to compete for a new award.

‘Design of the Year, Flat Glass’, has been added to the annual Glass Focus Awards organised by British Glass, which will celebrate the best in design throughout the flat glass sector and its supply chain.

Dave Dalton, chief executive of British Glass, said: “From architects, engineers and tradesmen, a huge supply chain helps keep the UK demand of over 700,000 tonnes of flat glass every year in supply.

“The flat glass sector shapes our landscapes and shapes the way we interact with spaces on a daily basis. Its versatility of use, from city skyscrapers through solar panels and automotive applications, is immense and has a clear but not always obvious impact on all our lives. It’s time to celebrate and highlight achievements in this area, and I am looking forward to some impressive entries.”

The 2019 event will take place on November 21 at the St Paul’s Mercure Hotel in Sheffield.

The contest is open to members and non-members while companies can enter multiple categories and submit more than one entry to the same or different categories.
