We had a double blast of code dives this week with webinars from the National Glass Association and from Glass Canada. Both webinars did sound at least a minor alarm about the next area of concern for the commercial glass world when it comes to codes; that would be the spandrel area.

In the face of COVID-19 pandemic, leading glass and glazing companies quickly pivoted to produce solutions for safer and healthier workspaces. These companies are invited to submit their essential products, projects, and/or achievements for consideration for recognition as part of Glass Magazine's new awards program, which will highlight the industry’s role in responding to COVID-19.

In response to these new difficulties, tech companies are developing several potential solutions for the enforcement of social distancing, as well as contact tracing for sick employees.
