The Skywalk at the Grand Canyon: 12 years later

This year is the 12th anniversary of Giroux Glass’ installation of the Skywalk, as well as our Las Vegas office’s 20th anniversary  – making it the ideal time for a first-ever visit for one excited group of visitors to the iconic landmark.  Giroux Glass ceo and president, Nataline Lomedico; Nataline’s son, Andre; Brian Peregrina, business development and client relations guru; and I joined National Glass Association’s Sara Neiswanger, and Andrew Haring, for a road trip.

Inspiring Photos From ENR’s “2018 Year in Construction”

We wanted to take a moment today and share ENR’s gallery of inspiration that goes back to 2003. Here at Giroux we tend to be focused on getting the job done to meet (and exceed) our client’s expectations. So when we take a moment to catch our breath and look around sometimes we see something that has that extra, shows everyone that every job can have its moment of extra special. Looking through ENR’s annual photo contest lets us get a glimpse into construction projects that do more than just get the job done. These images are able to transport [...]

USGlass Releases “Hospitality Hall” Video

The new Harrah College of Hospitality building on the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) campus, features glass on the façade and throughout the spacious interior, allowing light to brighten the learning environment. USGlass interviewed representatives of companies involved in the project from design to installation, including our project manager, Daniel Rodriguez: See video here. Fifty years ago, a small “hotel” department at a little-known university in the desert started as the “College of Hotel Administration.” Over the next five decades, it became UNLV’s flagship program, and one of the top-ranked hospitality colleges in the world. To celebrate its fiftieth [...]

Reflections of our Past Work

It seems fitting that now, as the year ends, we take a moment to look back on our company’s long history, and ponder our many past projects throughout the Downtown Los Angeles skyline. Where better to do literally that, than from the vantage point of yet another of our projects: the City National Plaza’s (CNP) top floors? This moment of reflection was motivated by an interview by the Los Angeles Business Journal, on whose list, the “100 Fastest Growing Private Companies” we recently ranked, and then became apparent that many construction companies made the list. They asked Giroux about our [...]
