Pilkington Slimming World HQ project announced as G19 awards finalist

Pilkington Slimming World HQ project announced as G19 awards finalist

Pilkington United Kingdom Limited, part of the NSG Group, has been listed as a finalist for Commercial Project of the Year in the G19 Awards for its installation at Slimming World’s HQ.

The ceremony will be taking place on the 29th November 2019 at the London Hilton hotel on Park Lane.

The installation, recognised by the glazing industry awards programme, was part of an £8.5 million renovation scheme at the weight loss organisation’s Derbyshire workspace.

Pilkington UK supplied low-emissivity and solar control glass to help the building stay warm in the winter and cooler in the summer, reducing the need for mechanical heating and cooling – while still allowing for maximum natural light transmittance.

The shortlisting follows Pilkington’s win in the category last year for its project at 6 St Andrew Square in Edinburgh.

Michael Metcalfe, commercial sales manager at Pilkington UK, said: “Sustainability is increasingly important in the built-environment. With advanced products, buildings can become more energy efficient without compromising on glazing’s aesthetical appeal, or natural light exposure, which research links to healthy living and productivity.

“We achieved this winning balance with the help of our partners for a well-loved British business, and it’s excellent to have this recognised by G19 by making the shortlist for Commercial Project of the Year.

“Slimming World HQ is also one of the first projects featuring Pilkington Suncool™ 60/31 T glass, which is now fully manufactured in the UK. We hope to combine a made-in-Britain success story with a new chapter for a well-loved British business.”

The project was supported by fabricators Advanced Glass Facades, main contractor Morgan Sindall Construction and architects CPMG.
