The Dreamwalls Color Glass Install of the Year goes to First Choice Glass in Raleigh, NC with their installation at Leith Kia in Fayetteville, NC. Kia and General Manager, Danny Williams, decided on the look for the $3 million dollar building and the glass feature wall was an important part of the design. Visible even from the street, it shows off the Kia signature red with sparkle and shine.
My favorite thing about this project is that the glass serves as the main focal point of the car showroom. Specified in a bright “Mars Red”, we love the look of the Kia logo in white overlay. These are the signature colors for Kia, and it definitely adds to a young feel in the showroom. “It has been easy to maintain and is beautiful,” according to Hugh, the Sales Manager at Leith Kia. The receptionist has had to tell people that it’s not plastic, that it’s glass, because they can’t believe how big it is. First Choice Glass was able to install the panels with the proper combination of specified adhesive and mechanical fasteners, and leaving an expansion gap – which is important, particularly in new construction.
The feature wall is consisting of ten (10) 1/4″ thick Dreamwalls Color Glass panels 33-1/16 x 72-7/16 each, installed floor-to-ceiling behind the main reception desk. Beautiful! We congratulate our 2013 Dreamwalls Install of the Year. It takes an expert installer to create such a beautiful and challenging installation.
Thank you to First Choice Glass and thank you to all the beautiful installations of our products this year: to all the glass markerboards, the heavy glass shower enclosures, the high-definition mirrors, the glass backsplashes,….we thank you. We can’t wait to see what creativity 2014 brings!
