Bellwether creates custom glazing systems. We particularly enjoy the development of new systems that challenge geometric and structural standards. Our approach is to partner our design and engineering professionals with the architectural design team, to break new ground.
Our design-build processes have been validated repeatedly in the field, and every structural glazing system is custom built to achieve your design goal. From point supported glazing and structural glass, to curtain walls and skylights, every system we develop is uniquely tailored to the project at hand, whatever the parameters, scale, or challenges.
Bellwether was founded in 2010 by partners with over 25 years of experience in the custom glazing industry. Company principals Brian Harrington and Mike Maguire are directly involved in the development of each project, and each customer relationship.
