Glass façades specialist Solaglas Contracting has been shortlisted by Contract Journal magazine in its prestigious Construction Industry Awards for the second year running, fending off stiff competition from a host of major competitors across a number of different sectors to be shortlisted for the ‘Specialist Contractor of the Year’ award.

The awards will be judged by an independent panel of eminent construction industry experts with the winner announced on 24 September at a ceremony to be held at London’s Royal Lancaster Hotel. Nick Prosser, Divisional Director comments: “To be shortlisted for the second year running is a real accomplishment. 

The Awards are designed to recognise outstanding business achievement and, in what has been a tough year for the industry, it is encouraging to see so many companies still performing well.

With sales of £51-million in 2008, Solaglas Contracting is the largest UK-based installer of façades and comprises four regional businesses.

The company provides specialist design, fabrication and installation services for external façade and internal glazing projects and recent high profile projects include the installation of 1300m² of glazing for the refurbishment and extension of Stratford Station’s Eastern Egress, BREEAM excellent rated office building ‘The Pinnacle’ in Milton Keynes and £3-million worth of work on Project Allenby/Connaught – the £8-billion PFI scheme to upgrade British Army garrisons at Aldershot and on the Salisbury Plain.

Solaglas Contracting is now competing against six other major national businesses for the coveted title of Specialist Contractor of the Year.
