Solutions for Any Glass Need

St. Germain’s Glass Co is prepared to supply your location with functional, aesthetically pleasing, and durable commercial glass products. Our locally owned business also offers you prompt service. Our team can provide takeoffs and estimating, shop drawings, fabrication, and delivery of materials.

Commercial builders appreciate St. Germain’s as a partner who is:

  • Consultative. St. Germain’s works alongside customers on their commercial building journey. Our focus is not on up selling or adding complexity to your project. We want to bring efficiencies to your process by sharing what we know works—and also what doesn’t work—when it comes to architectural glass and metal design.
  • Knowledgeable. We are one of the longest continually operating glass companies in the Midwest. St. Germain’s has over a century of experience making recommendations and finding solutions that make the most sense for our customers. This level of industry knowledge allows us to transform even the most preliminary sketch into a functional, buildable plan for your glass or metal construction materials.
  • Budget-conscious. St. Germain’s understands the financial implications of getting behind schedule on a construction project. The larger the project, the more risk of setbacks and a domino effect on timelines for other phases of work to be completed. We help minimize those risks for our customers with proactive planning throughout the entire design process.
  • Ready to tackle details. Do you need an energy-efficient glass coating solution that reduces the heat build-up in your structure? Is your site a good candidate for bird-safe glass? What are the thermal performance requirements of your curtain wall design? Let St. Germain’s help with glazing insights that will free up your time to focus on other aspects of the building design.
  • Focused on you. Your building has a distinct purpose, and we respect that. St. Germain’s participation in the design process is not about showcasing our products or packing more glass and metal into your enclosure envelope. Instead, we put the needs of our customers first. St. Germain’s wants to help you achieve your design goals with a finished product you can be proud of.

Contract Glazing

Our commercial design team can ensure your concept is workable in a real-world glazing scenario.We take variables such as material availability, wind load, and other structural or environmental factors into consideration,while also suggesting efficiencies that meet your design intent.

We Calculate

From day one, St. Germain’s adds immense value by ensuring your architectural glass and metal designs are workable. We convert big-picture plans into precisely measured puzzle pieces that fulfill your design intent while maintaining the structural integrity of the opening. Whether you need us at the rough-concept stage or after blueprints are drawn, rely on St. Germain’s glazing design team to ensure the finished product will be everything you envisioned.

We Clarify

A big part of the pre-construction process is getting everyone aligned around the builder’s vision for the project. St. Germain’s helps foster this alignment through clear and consistent communication with all trade partners. We fill information gaps about performance requirements, logistics, and feasibility of glass and aluminum designs. St. Germain’s takes the initiative to clarify up-front details and set realistic parameters that builders can trust us to meet.

We Collaborate

Based on our vast experience working with a variety of sub-contractors, St. Germain’s knows why it’s important to include their perspectives in our earliest design and construction sequencing conversations. For example, our holistic approach considers how window design changes could impact structural framers, masonry workers, electricians or other trade partners. By proactively working to maintain collaborative relationships and solve problems before they start, St. Germain’s helps you avoid unnecessary headaches and delays.
