High-End Design at a Local LA Residence

Whenever our marketing team asks to join our glaziers on-site, it often reminds me of how unique and involved our role as a glazing contractor can be. We estimators and project managers can get so caught up in our day-to-day work that we don’t often stop to reflect on the incredible skill of our Union glaziers, and the coordinated effort that’s required to successfully complete each project. For instance, our marketing team recently scaled ladders and climbed around a current project site to photograph new construction at a Los Angeles estate. The job required some major maneuvering with a crane [...]

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 [...]

Giroux Glass’ Las Vegas Projects Tour

On Friday, December 14th I had a productive day touring a few of Giroux’s completed projects. This whirlwind expedition was guided by Jesse and included more than a couple of my Giroux partners. Stops along the way included Wynn, Palazzo and Venetian hotels, where we were able to view various challenging aspects of quality glass, glazing, façades and curtain wall installations. I really enjoyed having this opportunity to visit completed works as well as jobs in progress. This tour included several top-line and detailed office meetings as we plan for an unbelievable 2019. Looking back on 2018, we at Giroux Glass [...]

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 [...]

New Pacific Realty

The High-End Design department at Giroux Glass covers various projects. From storefronts to multi-million-dollar homes, our department has done it all. Although most of the work at Giroux Glass consist of exterior jobs, in the High-End Design department we work on many interiors as well. Earlier this year, my team (Allen Shook, Chris Ruiz, Rob Neal, Shaun Hosmer & crew) and I worked on the interior of New Pacific Realty in Beverly Hill, CA. New Pacific Realty is one of many offices located in the Kenquest/Beverly Hills building.  The Kenquest/Beverly Hills building is a 5- story mid-century modern building located [...]

Providing for Employees – Providing for the Community

The Inner Cities Capital Connections just released their 2018 Impact Report and it features Giroux Glass as an example of creating inclusive prosperity in inner cities. Giroux was nominated to be a part of this report for several reasons. Noted in the opening paragraph: “When you walk into the offices of Giroux Glass in Los Angeles you’re greeted by the company’s core values printed – fittingly – on large glass walls: Growth. Integrity. Respect. Ownership. Unity. Excellence.” And this speaks to all of our partners, friends and associates. The INITIATIVE FOR A COMPETITIVE INNER CITY (ICIC) is a national nonprofit [...]

Proud to Make this List!

The Los Angeles Business Journal (LABJ) has once again, just published its most recent list of LA’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies. We are thrilled to see that we not only made the list, but especially that we moved up in rank from where we landed last year.  In 2017, Giroux Glass ranked at #83 on the list.  Last week, CEO and president, Nataline Lomedico and I attended a fun event at an underground old bank vault in Downtown Los Angeles, called “The Reserve,” for the big reveal.  Amidst the other 99 curious list members, we learned that this year, we moved up [...]

Words of Wisdom for Young Industry Hopefuls

Last month, Nataline Lomedico, CEO and president of Giroux Glass Inc., was one of seven panelists at the 2018 Associated General Contractors (AGC) Annual Conference in Lake Tahoe. The panel discussed diversity and inclusion and its importance in the construction industry. When people hear the word diversity, a few concepts that immediately come to mind are race and gender, but what about age? After leaving the conference, Nataline considered that the current construction workforce reflects a disproportionate number of younger people, as well as the other more often-cited issues. “For every three baby boomers retiring from the construction industry, only [...]
