About the School

With the advent of technology and availability of materials locally, buildings in India have started having extensive amount of glazing-either in the form of façade glazing or in the form of windows. The private and Government infrastructure is also witnessing major growth in all parts of the country in which structural glazing plays a vital part of it.

However, while the Building Façade industry has grown very fast, there are gaps in skills in the glass façade and glass processing which has led to poor quality of workmanship, delayed completion and additional costs arising from rework. Also the more complex site operations are installation of facades and façade elements require a range of skills and knowledge that are not yet been recognized as specific skill or trade.

The installation and Glass processing have emerged as one of the important areas of employment in Gujarat. Gujarat is facing acute shortage of Skill required for glass façade fabrication and installation Technology.

Objectives
