Giroux Glass Completes Glazing Work on Nordstrom, Century City

Whenever our surrounding cities expand, change, and modernize, it seems like Giroux Glass is always right there in the middle of it all. That’s one of the most exciting things about my job—that we are able to take part in advancing our communities through construction. We’re very proud of the work that we recently completed at Westfield Century City, in which a brand new, three-level Nordstrom LA flagship store was built and recently opened. It’s a new concept space with modern updates and plenty of natural light. The new space includes not only the usual upscale retail use, but also [...]

Macy’s at DTLA’s The Bloc

DTLA’s The Bloc is wrapping up an intensive, long-awaited overhaul that has transformed the once closed-off retail destination into a modern, open-air plaza which features areas for conversating (complete with eco-friendly, faux grass turf and lounging areas), and conversation pieces alike, including the glass updates recently made by our Giroux Glass team. Earlier this year, our Commercial department was assigned the project of retrofitting the existing Macy’s building with a new, updated glass entrance, shown here. It’s a main focal point of the al fresco center, as it flanks one end of the new plaza. It provides a striking backdrop to the new pedestrian-friendly plaza, “The Square,” and a welcome break from the hustle and [...]

Tehachapi’s New Hospital is Nearly Complete

Back in November 2014, Giroux Glass was contracted by Bernards/Colombo Joint Venture to join the construction team that is, now, nearly finished with building the new $56-million replacement hospital for the Tehachapi Valley Health Care District in Tehachapi, CA. The approximately 79,000 sq. ft. “critical-access” facility will be the only healthcare facility within a 50-mile radius in Tehachapi, a rural area of Kern County.  Its dire need is just one reason why we’re so eager to wrap up this project in the next couple of months (our estimated completion date is April 1, 2016). The new hospital sits on a “greenfield site” (undeveloped land) about two miles [...]

New Nordstrom, with Glass by Giroux

We’re very proud of the work we did at the Del Amo Fashion Center (Torrance, California), in which 200,000 square feet of tired 1960s-era retail space on one floor was replaced with 400,000 square feet in two stories, on the brand new 138,000-square-foot Nordstrom store. The Nordstrom space includes not only the usual upscale retail use, but also a sleek modern café restaurant, “Bazille,” complete with a visible chef and kitchen-view area, an outside patio and e-bar. Curtain wall, structural glass walls and storefronts (supplied by Arcadia) Storefront doors (provided by Arcadia) Signage Sunshades (provided by AGS) Draft Screens and [...]
