BCI Worldwide was one of nine suppliers honored by Sands China at their Seventh Annual Sands Supplier Excellence Awards for their services in the category of Furniture, Fixtures, and Equipment (FF&E).

Thousands of service providers were nominated by Sands China’s business units and employees before being selected by a committee of Sands China’s Executive Management team.

“We’re honored to be selected by Sands China for our hard work on their amazing properties,” said Lino Airosa, Executive Managing Director of BCI Worldwide, “This award further shows their faith in allowing us to handle the furniture that goes into every room, restaurant, and public space on their properties.”

BCI has been working with Sands China’s parent company, Las Vegas Sands, in the USA for many years but did not enter the Macau market until 2011. Since then, BCI has had the privilege to complete some of Sands’ largest and most demanding hotel pre-opening and renovation projects, including the openings of the 4-hotel mega complex, Sands Cotai Central, which makes up nearly 6,000 total rooms, and The Parisian, which houses roughly 3,000 rooms.

To date, BCI Worldwide has completed over 10,000 hotel rooms for Sands in Macau and looks to continue their relationship over their next phase of re-development, including the $2.2 billion renovation of Sands Cotai Central into The Londoner, a London-themed resort complex.

LOUISVILLE, KY (June 28, 2021) – With the addition of Microban® technology, HMI’s C.10 Glass Protectant is the premium choice for maintaining high-end glass shower enclosures and specialty glass products. HMI is the first glass manufacturer to offer this advanced antimicrobial technology, adding a layer of invisible protection to its custom glass for smarter, cleaner showers.

Recognized worldwide and trusted for its long-lasting product protection and cleanliness, Microban works with more than 250 leading companies including Samsonite, Poly, Rubbermaid, Sherwin Williams, and GE Appliances to enhance more than 1,000 products. Its antimicrobial technologies, odor control solutions, and smart surface technologies are used to treat everything from medical devices and door hardware to school supplies and travel accessories.

As the clear leader in innovation, HMI is always striving for new ways to offer the best in custom shower glass. Assessing solutions for cleaner, safer showers is the company’s top priority. HMI understands that microbes can live anywhere, including on the most beautiful shower glass. In the correct conditions, bacteria can double in number every 20 minutes on an untreated surface, causing bad odors, reducing product lifetime, staining products and surfaces, and making products difficult to clean. The best treatment is prevention, making Microban the perfect partner for HMI.

HMI’s C.10 with Microban is integrated during the glass manufacturing process and becomes part of the molecular structure of the custom glass product. The Microban technology inhibits bacteria reproduction. On an untreated surface, the bacteria reproduce rapidly, but on a C.10 with Microban treated surface, the bacteria are reduced by up to 99%.

C.10 with Microban works continuously to keep shower glass cleaner between showers. The invisible protection results in visible cleanliness and less mold and mildew between cleanings. Everyone from homeowners to the hospitality industry will enjoy peace of mind that Microban technology is proven effective against a broad spectrum of bacteria on your shower glass. Protecting the glass from the growth of degrading microbes also extends the life of the glass.

Because of its clear nature, C.10 with Microban is an ideal protectant for any custom design with digital in-glass printing. The product will not affect or tint the design, allowing customers to safeguard their custom glass investment and ensuring the work of art is safe from wear and tear.

This new product offering is key for general contractors, architects, or commercial designers serving clients in the hospitality industry. Overall cleanliness was ranked as the most important attribute for hotel guests, surpassing both price and location. Specifying an HMI glass shower and C.10 with Microban glass protectant allows hospitality business owners to effectively and continuously keep showers cleaner, while giving guests the cleanliness they seek and the most enjoyable hotel experience.

HMI’s national network of glaziers will also appreciate the chance to treat their clients to powerful product protection. Studies show 73% of consumers are interested in products that reduce how often they must clean. Whether a residential or commercial project, C.10 with Microban meets client needs, ensuring less time worrying about cleaning and more time relaxing.

Ready to give your clients the smart choice of Microban antimicrobial product protection?
HMI representatives are armed with knowledge and available to answer any questions. HMI looks forward to continuing to offer the latest in custom glass technology.

Danville, Virginia – BLUE RIDGE FIBERBOARD, INC., the largest North American manufacturer of wood fiber products, now offers the commercial roofing industry an increased supply of STRUCTODEK, its proprietary roofing recover board. HUEBERT FIBERBOARD, INC., located in Boonville, MO, is now licensed and approved to manufacture under the BLUE RIDGE FIBERBOARD brand name. STRUCTODEK will be packaged the same and hold all the necessary FM®, UL® and Miami-Dade® approvals to meet the technical needs of today’s roofing industry.

HUEBERT FIBERBOARD is a wholly-owned subsidiary of W. R. MEADOWS®, INC. and a sister company to BLUE RIDGE FIBERBOARD. Tom Verrill, BLUE RIDGE FIBERBOARD Technical Services Manager, stated “The technical approvals have been completed, allowing BLUE RIDGE FIBERBOARD to offer additional supply to the marketplace under the coveted STRUCTODEK brand name. We have received Factory Mutual, UL, and Miami-Dade approvals and the product will be manufactured to the strict requirements of ASTM C-208 and STRUCTODEK product specifications. The end result will be an additional manufacturing facility for BLUE RIDGE FIBERBOARD, thus increasing the available supply of STRUCTODEK roof insulation to the marketplace.”

Mike Taylor, Director of Sales and Marketing, said BLUE RIDGE FIBERBOARD is committed to offering the industry the best products in a timely manner.

“Service and availability is crucial for our customers. While the overall fiberboard capacity on the surface appears to be plentiful, it is simply not the case because the majority of commercial projects require Factory Mutual RoofNav® assembly approvals as well as UL and Miami-Dade approvals. STRUCTODEK is currently included in more than 120,000 RoofNav® assemblies, the most in the industry,” says Taylor. He also notes that much of the fiberboard currently being sold into the U.S. is imported from Canada and the manufacturers simply do not possess the approvals.

BLUE RIDGE FIBERBOARD is a wholly-owned subsidiary of W. R. MEADOWS, a family-owned company that last year celebrated 90 years of service to the construction industry.
