"What I like about working with contract glaziers is that they can provide positive technical insight into a project," explains Christopher P. Stoddard, AIA, senior associate principal LEED AP, for Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) Associates PC in New York.
"We often try to reach out to glaziers during the design phase to help the design team develop buildable designs.This helps to minimize changes and conflicts in the design down the road," he says.
Stoddard takes a similar view."Generally we have had positive relationships with glaziers.Our interaction usually revolves around the storefront component of projects," he explains.
If the job is awarded to someone less inclined to do custom work this process can be more difficult and often adversarial," Stoddard adds.

"Generally, it is more positive than negative, and sometimes very positive," states Chris Stoddard of KPF in appraising these relationships."In the end it depends on the quality of the glazier on the job, the budget and also the quality of the construction documents developed by the design team," he adds.
