GANA moves into new headquarters

Post Time:Jul 29,2010Classify:Industry NewsView:122

The Glass Association of North America moved into its new headquarters in early July from an office park in southwest Topeka, Kan.,to the 15th floor of an office building in downtown Topeka, overlooking the Kansas State Capitol building, according to a July 29 release. The move by GANA's management company, Centric Management and Consulting (formerly Association Services Corp.), will save the association money in the long run, while offering more in-house benefits to GANA as well.

"The new office will allow us to expand the types of services we offer to GANA and other clients," said Bill Yanek, GANA executive vice president, in the release. "We can now host events in-house, we are in the process of building a video studio for podcasts and educational presentations, and many more features are being developed."

In addition to the picturesque views from the office, glazing donated from GANA members plays a part in the new headquarters.Decorative glazing from Goldray Industries, Calgary, Canada,and fire-rated glazing from Technical Glass Products,Snoqualmie , Wash., give the entrance to the new office suites a glass-focused modern approach to office design.The glazing from Goldray features an organic vertical pattern, giving the space an airy, more natural feel. An 8-foot-by-4-foot decorative glazing sign for Centric Management and Services is being donated by Arch Deco Glass, Columbus, Ohio,and will be installed prior to a special ribbon cutting in the new headquarters by the Topeka Chamber of Commerce in late August, according to the release.

"We are incredibly grateful to Goldray, Arch Deco Glass and TGP for their donations," said Yanek. "Other tenants in our office building have taken note of the glazing in our suite."

While GANA's phone and fax numbers remain the same, the new mailing address for GANA is now: 800 SW Jackson St., Suite 1500, Topeka, KS 66612-1200.
