Giroux Glass Las Vegas Tru Hotel Hilton

Tru by Hilton Las Vegas Airport Hotel

We are proud to say that we worked on a beautiful new hotel in Las Vegas with a completely different concept, aimed affordably at the young-at-heart. Tru by Hilton has recently opened a new location near McCarran International Airport. The 166-room hotel is currently the largest to operate under this new Hilton brand,  and is the eighth one to open in the U.S., one of the 470 planned in the future. What I find really interesting is that this hotel is owned by the United Brotherhood of Carpenters, and is  located conveniently next to the Carpenters’ Union Campus. That affiliation is made very [...]

Giroux Glass on UNLV College of Hospitality

New School of Hospitality at UNLV

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 the University of Nevada at Las Vegas’ (UNLV’s) flagship program, and one of the top-ranked hospitality colleges in the world. To celebrate its fiftieth anniversary this Spring, the college launched its new state-of-the art academic building, renaming it, “William F. Harrah College of Hospitality.” The new LEED Silver Certified building was designed by Carpenter Sellers Del Gatto Architects, and McCarthy Building Group and Giroux Glass played a major role in making the beautiful [...]

Giroux Glass at the Heart of the City 5k 2018

Good Times at the Heart of the City!

We had the pleasure of participating, for the fourth year in a row, in a fun and healthy annual event: the “Heart of the City” 5-K Walk/Run which took us through the (for once, empty!) streets of Downtown Los Angeles on March 24th. The event was organized by and benefits the California Hospital Medical Center, situated right in the center of Downtown LA, and also the location of the start/finish line. Giroux Glass assembled a team of participants who represented all of our locations, including Las Vegas, San Bernardino, and Fresno. Thanks to our sole runner, George Wiriadinata (who finished with a time [...]

Giroux Glass, Inc. sponsors #TablesThatBloom event

Construction-Themed Designs Fundraiser

Today, March 20th, heralds the first day of Spring, and a new event in Los Angeles has launched a wonderful way in which to usher it in. Giroux Glass participated in the first annual Tables That Bloom event, a fundraiser organized by Delta Gamma alumnae to support both LA’s Blind Children’s Center (90%) and the Delta Gamma Foundation (10%).  We are happy to support one of the oldest charities in Los Angeles, as the Blind Children’s Center, now in its 79th year of service, started just a few years before Giroux Glass itself.  “We feel that it’s not only important [...]

Giroux Glass installs all-glass booth at CES 2018

All-Glass Booth at CES

Sometimes at Giroux Glass we are asked to take on some pretty big glass installation challenges.  For this project, timing was the challenge.  A huge challenge.  Timing was short, there was no room for error, and it had to be right from the moment the deadline hit.  It was such a challenge, that my own (usually more optimistic) co-workers laughed at me when I told them about it…. On December 12th, I got an email from exhibit company, Czarnowski, asking us to build a glass tradeshow exhibit booth for their customer, LG, in time for the recent Consumer Electronic Show (CES), with [...]

NAWIC LA's Lessons Learned Seminar at Giroux Glass, Inc.

Nataline’s Top 17 Lessons Learned

When NAWIC LA asked me to share my story on February 20th, I opted to share “Lessons Learned” throughout my life, my career, and the seventeen years I’ve been with Giroux Glass, Inc.. As a CEO and a mom, I knew I didn’t want to give a speech on how to achieve the perfect work-life balance; that would’ve been a 30-second conversation for me (Pick the most pressing priority at that moment!). But I did want to share my passion for mentorship and life-long learning, which I could talk about endlessly. I decided to reflect on my life experiences, and [...]

USC Trojans’ Home — L.A. Coliseum to Become the United Airlines Memorial Coliseum

There are times we land special projects close to my heart. This is one of them! On January 29th, USC formally kicked off the $270-million renovation project that will preserve and improve the historic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. One of So Cal’s most beloved historical landmarks and home of the USC Trojans will officially become the United Airlines Memorial Coliseum beginning in August 2019. Giroux Glass is honored to be the glazing contractor for this historic undertaking. The stadium — the only venue in the world to have hosted two Olympics, two Super Bowls and a World Series — will [...]

Equinox Wilshire Giroux Glass Service Project

Glass Replacement at Equinox

Sometimes the most seemingly clear-cut, conventional tasks often don’t turn out to be (as I’m sure you’re well aware!). Recently, what began as a simple glass replacement, became a wonderful opportunity to reflect on many aspects of the glass and glazing industry. Recently, Giroux Glass hosted Sarah, a local high-school student and recipient of NAWIC-LA’s Girls in STEM Scholarship, for a day of touring around our Los Angeles headquarters and a nearby jobsite, and observing the daily duties of project managers, estimators, and CAD technicians. Our first stop of the day was at Equinox Westwood, where our Service team was [...]
