UNITED KINGDOM - Glass & Glazing Federation
Relocates to New Headquarters
December 7, 2009
The Glass & Glazing Federation has moved into its new headquarters
building and into what its chief executive Nigel Rees says will
be a "new and exciting" era for the organization and the
industries it represents, with facilities that encourage "bold
and original thinking."
to the group's previous offices in London's Southwark, GGF describes
the new building as having been a shabby, poorly appointed and drab
1970's shell that provided a real challenge for the architects and
developers. Now having been renovated, the new structure features
"substantial and adventurous use of glass."
Nigel Rees, GGF Group chief executive, says that he is delighted
with the end result.
"As outdated and impractical as our old premises had become,
our new facility is modern, stylish and comfortable, whilst also
providing us with a working showcase of the very best that can be
found in glass and glazing for modern buildings. I believe that
our new facilities will enable the Glass & Glazing Federation
to move into a new and exciting era in which we will create initiatives
that will help us to take the industry forward, with some bold thinking.
The conditions within the building not only provide excellent facilities
in which the GGF and its constituent organizations will thrive,
it also provides a very prestigious and appropriate impression of
the UK glass and glazing industries."
