We are a family – We are APG
“Throughout my over 25-year relationship with Advanced Performance Glass (APG), they have been my go-to glazing company. The APG team has always performed exceptionally regardless of the challenges faced. Time and time again, they have delivered on time and on budget, proving their expertise as a first-class glazing company.
APG’s capacity to understand the scope of a project along with their expertise in the glazing industry allows them to provide value engineering solutions that result in better projects and lower costs. The quality of APG’s work from preconstruction to project completion is exceptional. They always keep us informed and provide projects that continually exceed our expectations.
For these reasons I would highly recommend considering APG for any project that you may have. We have developed a lasting relationship with them and will continue to have them as part of our team.”
“APG always exceeds my expectations. Quality, Integrity, Reliability, Cooperation: it is why I have always turned to APG for our Building Division’s glazing needs. Their quality and cooperation over as many years has been exemplary. They are my preferred, go-to, Glazing Contractor.”
“Advanced Performance Glass does an amazing job and we wholeheartedly recommend them. Their attention to delivering a high-quality product while focusing on employee safety is admirable and they have a dedicated, passionate team that meets job schedules with ease.”
“APG has installed the glass curtain wall and aluminum panel systems on many of our buildings over the years, but it wasn’t until the Law School Center we designed for Quinnipiac University that I met Gary Rooke and got a first-hand understanding of how thorough, skilled, and creative he and his team were. Gary even solved the creation of our 50ft. tall metal and glass “nanotube” for the science building we designed for Southern Connecticut University. On that project, he and his team also did a masterful job with a very complex accordion shaped curtain wall and aluminum panel system that had numerous types of curved-top louvers and mitered sun screens. Of course, I turned to Gary and APG when it came time to build my home, which had expansive glass walls overlooking the Connecticut River and an all-glass hipped roof over the dining room. We were required to design for Miami-Dade County hurricane force winds, and Gary developed all of the details including a series of beautiful glass fins to stiffen the 9ft. high by 25’ long glass panels against the high winds. It all still stands, has never leaked, and is exquisitely beautiful. Gary and his team at APG are simply the best in the business.”
“ I have been fortunate to have been working in the Connecticut commercial marketplace for the past three decades. I have worked with over 200 different Connecticut subcontractors in that time period from site contractors to steel fabricators to HVAC and electrical firms. While the experience with these subcontractors has varied greatly, it is easy to put a place for the very best of subcontractors. There is a clear leader in that category. Gary Rooke and the APG team go above and beyond their “scope” of work on nearly every project they do for FIP. On average APG works on 15-20 projects a year for FIP. Multiply that by thirty years and that is over 450 single projects they have successfully completed. All without a blemish. Never a claim and always on time – an impeccable record. (Better than the Yankees 27 World Series and NY Giants wins over New England).
Under Gary’s leadership APG is regarded as a trustworthy, honest, innovative and problem-solving organization that is able to effectively complete some of the most ornate and logistically challenging Curtain Walls, Glass and Metal systems projects built in New England. FIP’s years of success on many of our projects has a direct correlation to the commitment and full service, expert approach APG provides day in and day out.”
