Case Study Project Overview

Safety is at the top of our list and with this project, keeping people safe was the number one priority. We were happy to take part in the development of this application to create a safe, bright environment for the Howard Young Correctional Institute.

Our Process

By the time the scheduled install date arrived we needed to have the glass block high-security windows totally complete and ready to set. Without any room for adjustment on install, our project managers had to make sure the windows were built to perfection making installation a breeze.

“GBA Products has a great group of people that back the product. From the jump, it was easy to get the information needed especially dealing with the difficulties of a Zero Lot Line Community. Made my job easy when GBA put together a proposed materials needed list together for me to help. When the opportunity arises again, I know I will not hesitate to reach out to this great team.”

“As a specialized mason, GBA was more knowledgeable and more professional in that genre of masonry than anyone else. Their staff was very professional and provided all required information in a timely fashion. The quality of work exceeded our expectations! They coordinated well in the field with the General Contractor and our foreman.”

Rick D’Aprile, Executive Vice President Rad and D'Aprile, Inc.

“When we started working with GBA they took our design, enhanced the features and provided a world class product. We are already working on another resort with GBA and we look forward to many more to come.”
