Pilkington United Kingdom Limited has recently been listed as a finalist for Commercial Project of the Year in the G19 Awards for its installation at Slimming Word’s HQ.
The installation, recognised by the glazing industry awards programme, was part of an £8.5 million renovation scheme at the weight loss organisation’s Derbyshire workspace.
Low-emissivity and solar control glass was supplied by Pilkington, helping the building to stay warm in the winter and cooler in the summer, reducing the need for mechanical heating and cooling – while still allowing for maximum natural light transmittance.
Michael Metcalfe, commercial sales manager at Pilkington UK, comments on the achievement: “Sustainability is increasingly important in the built environment. With advanced products, buildings can become more energy-efficient without compromising on glazing’s aesthetical appeal, or natural light exposure, which research links to healthy living and productivity.
“We achieved this winning balance with the help of our partners for a well-loved British business, and it’s excellent to have this recognised by G19 by making the shortlist for Commercial Project of the Year.
“Slimming World HQ is also one of the first projects featuring Pilkington Suncool™ 60/31 T glass, which is now fully manufactured in the UK. We hope to combine a made-in-Britain success story with a new chapter for a well-loved British business.”
The ceremony will be taking place on the 29th November 2019 at the London Hilton hotel on Park Lane.
