"There are only a small group of people in the building industry that are masters of their craft, and are willing to go beyond their comfort zone to help and create something unique. Innovative Glass is definitely one of them. The projects that we have worked on together are usually extremely demanding in time frame, also challenging in detailing. Innovative Glass bring their expertise as consultants from the beginning at the design stage, seeking out ways to achieve complex detailing, through to the end, taking absolute care and responsibility in all their installations."
