About this job

Planning and Designing: Collaborating with architects, engineers, and clients to plan and design glass house structures. This involves assessing the site, determining design requirements, and creating detailed construction plans.

Material Selection: Selecting appropriate types of glass and other materials, such as aluminum frames, for the construction of the glass house. This includes considering factors such as durability, energy efficiency, and aesthetic appeal.

Cutting and Shaping Glass: Using precision tools and equipment to cut, shape, and polish glass panels according to design specifications. This may involve cutting glass to fit specific dimensions, creating curved or angled surfaces, and adding decorative elements.

Installing Glass Panels: Installing glass panels using various techniques such as glazing, sealing, and securing them into frames or structural supports. This requires careful attention to detail to ensure proper alignment, sealing, and weatherproofing.

Assembling Frames and Structures: Fabricating and assembling aluminum or steel frames, supports, and other structural components for the glass house. This includes welding, cutting, and assembling frame sections according to design plans.

Sealing and Waterproofing: Applying sealants, gaskets, and weatherproofing materials to ensure a tight seal around glass panels, frames, and joints. This helps prevent water infiltration, air leakage, and heat loss.

Installing Hardware and Fixtures: Installing hardware such as hinges, handles, locks, and other fixtures onto glass doors, windows, and partitions. This requires precise measurements, drilling, and mounting to ensure proper functionality and aesthetics.

Ensuring Safety and Compliance: Adhering to safety regulations and building codes throughout the construction process. This includes implementing safety measures to prevent accidents, ensuring structural integrity, and obtaining necessary permits and inspections.

Maintaining Quality Standards: Ensuring high-quality workmanship and craftsmanship in all aspects of glass house construction. This involves inspecting materials, monitoring construction progress, and addressing any issues or deficiencies promptly.

Collaborating with Contractors and Trades: Coordinating with other construction professionals, subcontractors, and tradespeople involved in the project, such as electricians, plumbers, and landscapers. This ensures seamless integration of glass house components with other building systems and features.
