Excellence inspiring trust
From France to Russia via Rio de Janeiro, Chicago and Calgary, Saint-Gobain was involved in numerous very large-scale projects in 2017.


Glassolutions with its acoustic and thermal insulation glazing, its screen-printed glass and solar-control glazing, and Vetrotech with its fire-protection glazing together delivered an effective solution for the largest law courts complex in Europe: the new Paris Law Courts (Tribunal de Paris) designed by the Renzo Piano Building Workshop and built by Bougues Bâtment IDF.

480,000 people are supplied by the Strasbourg Eurométropole (France) drinking water network for which Saint-Gobain PAM supplied 24 km of pipes. 

Voted one of the best stadiums of the year: such is the success fielded by Arena Krasnodar, which is equipped with Saint-Gobain Ecophon and Saint-Gobain Weber solutions. It was also won the people’s choice for second best stadium of the year, and was awarded third prize by a panel of architects in the StadiumDB annual ranking.

Solar control is the main function of the glass supplied by Cebrace – a Saint-Gobain Glass and NSG Group joint company – for the facade of the newly renovated Gran Meliá Nacional hotel in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil). Solar control was also the requirement for the glass used on the new Zagreb Airport terminal (Croatia). 

Acoustic comfort is provided by the CertainTeed Ceilings Decoustics and CertainTeed Sand Micro solutions installed at the new Calgary Airport (Canada). 

Dynamic variable tinted glass was supplied by SageGlass® for the Shakespeare Theater in Chicago (United States), and for the Warwick Geneva Hotel (Switzerland).

Each year, Saint-Gobain develops increasingly efficient and essential innovations enabling increasingly ambitious projects to be undertaken daily worldwide.
