Hotel Renovation Completed By Alamo Glass

Commercial Glass

Alamo Glass has recently wrapped up another major hotel renovation in Dallas, Texas!  This was a very involved job, and our work is prominently featured throughout the hotel.

Moline Construction located in Dallas, Texas was the general contractor on this project.  We have worked with Moline on many other hotel and country club renovations throughout the years, and they are always a pleasure to work for.

Commercial GlassThe job began in December of 2011 and wrapped up in March of 2012.   Alamo Glass provided everything from storefront to mirrors.  Hotels are always exciting to work on for us because the designers on these projects often specify unusual, exotic and challenging products.

We enlisted the help of many great vendors from around the country to provide us with the products needed to complete the job.  There were many challenges along the way, but the team at Alamo Glass delivered outstanding service and technical skills to complete the job on time and within budget.

Alamo Glass provided and installed over 1500 custom saten glass table tops, a 1/2″ glass stair railing, custom crinkle textured bronze mirror, a feature wall with 1/2″ custom cast glass, 1/2″ butt glazed storefront with automatic sliding doors and many other products.

We are very proud of the outstanding work that our highly skilled glaziers were able to produce under the tight deadline that was imposed to complete the job.  We would also like to thank Moline Construction for allowing us the opportunity to work on this project  as well as all of the other trades that were involved on this job.  It took many GREAT companies to finish this major remodel in the short amount of time provided.

Beveled strips are mirror cut in strips, to add to exisiting mirror to give the mirror a framed look, (framed in mirror). It can give your plain mirror an instant update. Adding bevel strips can hide chips along the bottom of the mirror that may occur from years of water damage. This is a creative way to change the look of your mirror without spending a fortune.

Alamo Glass In Search of Cutting Edge Custom Glass Applications

Unfortuantely due to the proprietary nature of the products on display at the Glass Build America show, attendees are not allowed to take picture of the products on display. I did manage to sneak a few photos from the show floor though!

I just recently returned form the annual Glass Build America trade show presented by the National Glass Association in Atlanta.  It is always a fun and exciting show where companies from around the world present the newest technology and innovations available to the glass industry.  I attend this show every year with the goal of learning about the newest products, meeting new manufacturers and suppliers and finding new exciting products to offer to Dallas and Ft Worth homeowners, business owners, contractors and designers.

It amazes me every year the advances that are made in the flat glass industry.  Technology has allowed for many new process and products.   Over the next few weeks I will highlight some of the companies and their products that I found very interesting and hopefully introduce you to some of the new possibilities available with glass.  I will focus on digital printing on glass, some of the unique laminating capabilities now available mixing glass with other materials such as wood, fabric and even vegetation (flowers, grass, etc…) and switchable glass (a product that can instantly be trnsfromed from transparent to translucent with the click of a button.
