Glass manufacturer Pilkington United Kingdom Limited has announced the launch of a new smartphone app that provides ideas and inspiration for building designers and architects.
The new app, Pilkington Project References includes a searchable database of Pilkington glass products that users can browse to find solutions to their project requirements.
A powerful search function means users can find projects by location, type of building, benefit-led category, type of glass or any other product-specific query. The app will then display examples of inspirational buildings from around the world, as well as detailed product data to support and enrich the design process for construction industry professionals. Plus, users can also search for nearby projects which they can visit to see the glass products and applications in situ. The app even enables users to share projects with collaborators via social media.
The new app joins the company’s existing Spectrum app, which is one of the industry’s most popular glass specifying tools, enabling users to find the Pilkington products that most closely match their project requirements. Launched in 2011, Spectrum has more than 19,000 registered UK users across its online and mobile platforms.
Jolanta Lessig, European Marketing Communications Manager at NSG Group, said: “The new Project References app makes it quicker and easier for users to find and select the products they need, wherever they are. It gives architects access to a multitude of inspirational examples, including office, residential, shopping, recreation, schools and kindergarten buildings, all incorporating the market-leading Pilkington glass product range.”
The new Project Reference app is available to download from the Apple iTunes store for iPhones and iPads, and available from the Google Play Store for Android devices.
