The Glass Association of North America announced  on February 9, 2009 the release of its 21st Glass Informational Bulletin (GIB), a series of educational documents available to the industry as a free download on their website.

Titled Bid Considerations for Contract Glazing Proposals, the GIB provides a handy list of contract inclusions, exclusions and qualifications for glazing subcontractors to consider adopting in their bids and job contracts. The list is a tool to assist subcontractors in evaluating their bid proposals.

“As the world of bid and contract writing becomes more perilous, the GANA Building Envelope Contractors (BEC) Division created this list to give glazing contractors and project managers a helpful resource,” said Ashley Charest, GANA’s Account Executive. “This newest Glass Informational Bulletin will be valuable for the industry novice and expert.”

Since their original creation, GANA’s Glass Information Bulletins have been downloaded over a 350,000 times from the website at Visitors to the site’s TechCenter will be able to add this GIB to their library beginning today.

The GANA BEC Division’s Technical Committee will be meeting early next week as a part of the BEC Conference to discuss development of other helpful resources for the industry. To learn more about the GANA BEC Conference, visit
