Architects are without doubt the driving factor when it comes to using Glass in modern architecture, they turn dreams and vision into reality.

For over 15 years EU Glass has supplied thousands M2 of glass from suppliers all around the world, from basic Float Glass to the new innovative Glass products introduced to the market, whilst offering this service a wealth of knowledge has been acquired and we wish to share this knowledge to support Architects with their future projects.

in Glass - we will source product - supply technical information and a whole host of other services that you will find useful, saving Architects both time and money.

We will gauge an understanding of your ideas and do all the ground work and present solutions to you.
We will work with you to make sure budgets are considered.
Once we have found a solution that suits we will open up our library of suppliers and approach alternative supplies that may help the project to make sure you have choices, if what you are looking for is not already there we will scour the Glass suppliers of the world to find what you require. This can be very time consuming for Architects, let EU Glass take this away from your to do list.
