Snow Storm, What Snow Storm?

Apparently the East Coast snow storm of January 24th was no match for our team of drivers. The morning of January 25th they were on time and unloading glass for S. Albert Glass moments after they plowed their parking lot. A definite ATTA BOY is in order.

Dey Street Passageway FINALLY Opens!

The Dey Street Passageway is an underground passageway in Manhattan, New York City, as  part of the Fulton Center project to rehabilitate the Fulton Street complex and improve connectivity in Lower Manhattan. The Dey Street Passageway lies under Dey Street in Lower Manhattan between Broadway in the eastern end, and Church Street in its western end. (THANK YOU WIKIPEDIA)
 
Pulp Studio was selected by general contractor SKANSKA to build a James Carpenter Design that consisted of two scopes. The first being that PS fabricated a triple laminated glass panel that was then installed into a steel assembly. Each panel is comprised of (22) 2 1/4″ x 144″ strips of glass with mitered long edges. Yikes, try handling those without snapping them in half. The final product has a saw tooth effect with a mirrored back.
 
The other scope were the big black reader boards. At 158 x 94 they are installed into what is a big steel gate that swings open for service and maintenance of the monitors. On the surface not so impressive, but behind the facade is a pretty amazing piece of architecture.
 
Next time you are downtown, stop in for a walk. It’s better than the gym.

The Navy Pier Gets an Update

The Navy pier, once know in Chicago as the Municipal Pier until 1927, got a recent update. Alliance Glass of Chicago facilitated the installation of a chrome metallic striped insulated glass a new elevator enclosure and some yellow textured glass for the stair wells. I am sure Charles Sumner Frost, the original architect of the Navy Pier in 1916, would be amazed at how his design has changed. On your next stop in Chicago, stop by and see the glass, and experience all the things the pier has to offer.
