The Fenestration News Bulletin this week will be sent to more than 14,000 recipients in just over 9,000 organisations aligned to the Window Industry. Making it an effective delivery platform to get your Companies message across.


Wishing you a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous 2021.

An observation over the break some have enjoyed, is that the 'main-stream-media' is maintaining its position of predicting the end of the world. Yes, I am a cynic, or is it an optimistic cynic. Gloom, doom and fear sells stories, matched with the appropriate headline and you suck people in - having people reading news stories exposes advertisers - advertisers in turn cause the cash to flow, thus permitting 'main-stream-media' to exist. It doesn't mean any of it is true, it's just selling.

In the meantime the entrepreneur, businesses and industry have as always worked around the scaremongering and the bizarre, and as such are thriving. Something to do with being able to offer customers solutions to situations that needed to be resolved. In one such illustration, I am amused by the stories of material shortages caused by the UK's independence, really, the spin suggests the UK Government is blocking essential goods arriving in the Country? No one else would - so why would they?

As we kick off the New Year the Fenestration News is chocked full of News stories about companies expanding, adding facilities, introducing new products and employing new and additional people, as always its not a big leap to see the direction the industry is heading.

Its great to have an association with and be able to facilitate the forward thinking, thriving and thrusting that actually contribute to Society - Happy New Year to you all.

US University picks innovative products from leading UK glass manufacturer for new Hall of Science

Spurring innovation and collaboration between scientists to enhance the student experience was front of mind when American University in Washington DC planned to build a new faculty to house its science programmes.

And as the building will be aiding research into topics including climate change, ensuring that the new facility was environmentally friendly was a key part of the brief.

In fact, the university wanted its new Hall of Science to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold, a certification that demands that operational carbon emissions for the finished building are kept below a certain level.

The three-storey, 95,000 Gross Floor Area (GFA) building relocates the university’s biology, environmental sciences, chemistry, and neuroscience departments into a modern, central location within the institution’s campus. … »
