Miner, PPG director of construction, flat glass, said the program was developed to leverage PPG’s extensive experience in managing multifaceted glass construction projects along with the quality fabrication capabilities of PPG/CFP members.
“Emerging trends such as building information modeling, design assist and off-site fabrication are compressing construction cycles while current architectural design themes are creating extremely complex exterior building facades,” he explained. “Those market drivers, combined with the forecast growth in glass demand over the next five years, will significantly increase delivery and installation pressures on our supply chain partners.”
While the current PPG demand management system effectively supplies PPG/CFP customers with the vast majority of their typical glass requirements, the PPG Concierge Program service is designed to address the supply needs of larger projects that involve atypical glass configurations, non-standard glass components, accelerated delivery schedules, advanced quality specifications or notably high-profile buildings. Projects managed through the PPG Concierge Program service will receive a dedicated project manager, priority inventory, scheduling of advanced glass production and supply chain logistics management.
