I am pleased to respond regarding my personal and professional assessment of Architectural Glass & Metals, Inc. They are well known in the architectural community as being a premier supplier/installer of high-quality architectural materials with, by far, the best technical support, product support, and product knowledge. They stand behind their products and installations like no other supplier we have worked with. Attention to detail and working with the architect to achieve design goals are very important services they offer the design community and serve to set them apart from their competition.

AGM is a consistent source of excellent quality materials and provides excellent technical support to help our design team creatively detail our projects. They continue to help us with alternative systems when cost becomes a greater influence in the overall project. AGM is generous with their time and offers to update our design team on products, systems, and how we can improve our projects. We are always happy to see AGM on the subcontractor and supplier's list.

Pioneer Construction is a top 500 national construction firm focusing on construction management, design-build, and general contracting delivery systems for clients across the Mid-west. Our Passion as "builders" has allowed us to establish very unique partnerships with clients, trade contractors, engineers and architects. One of those partnerships has been with Architectural Glass and Metals (AGM). We have embarked on many projects as a team, but the most recent projects have been the GVSU Mary Idema Pew Library, GVSU Siedman College of Business, and GVSU Bio-Sciences Laboratory and Marketplace. All of these projects were complex in their own respects. Each was comprised of high-performing building envelopes which were constructed by AGM. The library project stretched the art of constructing high-performance building envelopes to new extremes. Using large dimensional, thermally broken CW framing, triple pane thermal units, architectural sun shades, and ornate stainless steel masonry grids, this building achieved an envelope tightness that led to a LEED platinum rating. In addition, AGM has played a part in pre-construction services assisting in selecting the appropriate materials for the given project. They are innovative and understand the newest of materials on the market. They also understand the importance of architectural performance. This guidance has proven to educate Pioneer into a premier envelope contractor. Finally, the field crews of AGM are outstanding. From project management, to foreman, to glaziers, each individual is trained, safe, and quality driven. These are extremely important attributes for contractors to exude when working with Pioneer and AGM is above the ranks. Pioneer would recommend AGM for major curtain-wall, storefront, and metal panel projects. It has been a pleasure working with their staff and we can only hope your experience has been and will be as beneficial as it has been to us.

As Director of Equipment and Facilities for the Kent County Road Commission, I would like to once again express my satisfaction with Architectural Glass & Metals, Inc. for their installation of the Kalwall Skylights. I say "again" because a year ago we worked with your company to replace 3,700 sq/ft of Kalwall sky lighting that had been installed in 1987 over the atrium at our Central Complex. We have been so impressed with the Kalwall system; that not only did we replace our existing Kalwall with Kalwall we also turned to it and Architectural Glass & Metals, Inc. to replace 24 skylights in conjunction with reroofing at our South Complex over the equipment storage area. The change in lighting is amazing. From the initial pre-bid stage to the finished work your staff was informative, prompt, helpful, courteous and able to work around our schedule with little or no disruption in our daily schedule. The process was just as amazing to watch as the transformation in the buildings from dark and dreary to bright and cheery took place. Plus the amount of daylight that now comes into the buildings has resulted in reduction of our lighting bill. We can highly recommend Architectural Glass & Metals, Inc. to anyone that may inquire. It has been a pleasure working with you and your team. We would not hesitate to make a referral to your company or work with you again.

I wanted to express our thanks to Architectural Glass & Metals (AGM) for the valuable assistance with the Magna Mirrors project. This project has been a challenge on many levels for all parties involved, but came together to be an example of how a team that utilizes each other's expertise can make something great. AGM's help with realizing the design and their willingness to try something new was refreshing. It is uncommon to have the opportunity to work with a company who is willing to go outside of the box and put in the extra effort to explore things that haven't been done before. Thank you for the hard work and support that AGM provided to the design team and contractors on this project. AGM's dedication to design and technical assistance to help facilitate the best end result possible is a valuable asset on any project. We look forward to working with you on our future projects.
