Horizon Glass

Denver – horizonglass.net – Founded: 1978

For the most part, when window-shopping, the last thing you’re thinking about are the panes of glass you’re looking through – that is, unless you know Horizon Glass. 

Experts in window systems, Horizon combines design, installation and efficiency in its commercial and residential projects. Window systems have the potential to make or break the operational effectiveness of a building, directly impacting insulation, soundproofing, air circulation, privacy, natural and synthetic light distribution and aesthetic properties, all the while maintaining structural integrity.

Horizon’s product and service offerings along with its exceptional fabrication and installation of architectural aluminum and glass for new construction are the backbone of the operation. The company has successfully completed thousands of interior and exterior glass installation projects, spanning hospitals to schools, office buildings to mixed-use facilities, multifamily housing units to resort and hospitality projects as well as city, state and federal buildings. 

Within the last three years, the Denver-based company has increased its average single large project capacity from $3 million to $5 million, and has expanded its hiring potential substantially, seeking skills, positive attitude and flexibility from its team. One of Horizon’s strategic advantages is its innovative architectural aluminum and glass fabrication facility. This achieves a superior product with the highest standards for schedule adherence, workmanship, quality and safety. With its track record of success, Horizon Glass has been recognized four years in a row as one of the “Top 50 Glaziers” in the industry publication Glass Magazine.

WATCH OUT FOR: CEO Lou Sigman anticipates the nonresidential construction market will continue to thrive in the coming years throughout Colorado. He adds that the hot-button issue of construction-defects has sharpened Horizon’s approach to the total building envelope of its projects – requiring a collaborative approach with the design team and other subcontractors to cover bases proactively, rather than defensively.
