Purposeful Building for Successful People.

We know that your project is more than the sum of its individual parts, because you’re building more than just a property – you’re building places where people can thrive. The Saint-Gobain Commercial Solutions team helps you define what success means for the people in your building – offices, hospitals, schools, airports and more – so you can maximize the performance of people in those spaces. Using our broad-reaching expertise in building science, systems and solutions throughout the entire project, our focus is not on what we manufacture but on whom it impacts and how.

We look at more than a single product category or building system. Our broad perspective encompasses a 360° view of your commercial project. We understand that improving how people See, Feel, Hear and Breathe in commercial spaces are not isolated concerns. They are all connected, and systems that impact one impact the others.

Allan Kirschner

Commercial Business Development Manager

From a young age I have always been interested in the built environment. Starting with Lincoln Logs (remember those), creating with Legos, sketching and drawing. I have always enjoyed the creative side of building design and as I grew older the technical side of me began to surface and I took interest in how buildings were constructed with all of the many individual pieces that come together to create a vision.

Bernie Shalvey

National Accounts Manager

What gets me excited about building materials is seeing after 39 years in the business that there is always room for new products, innovations and better ways to produce materials in a more sustainable way. It is extremely rewarding to bring to life the vision of my customers and knowing that we are creating buildings that will improve the lives of the people in them.

Brittany Wright

Commercial Business Development Manager

My advanced art teacher, Mr. Heston, encouraged me to go into design and architecture after a ‘dream house’ drawing assignment. That moment really opened my eyes and created a passion to learn how buildings are built. To me, architecture is more than making a building look pretty, it’s making spaces better for people. After earning my masters in Architecture and designing buildings it seemed like a natural progression to share with others how the right systems can make what is beautiful also better for the well-being of the people inside.

Heather Whitaker

Senior Manager, Commercial Sales & Business Development

As a self-proclaimed “tomboy” and growing up with a father who was a carpenter, I always wanted to follow in his footsteps. I realized very early on as I shadowed my father that there were people that designed those spaces that he built so I traded in my toolset for graph paper and started designing. One of my earliest designs was a “Dog Mansion” because everyone deserves a great place to live. I’m fortunate to work for a company that allows me to do the things that I love by creating purposeful, functional and comfortable buildings for people and the occasional dog.

Jennifer Vorberger

Commercial Business Development Manager

Although my graduate thesis focused on how the built environment affects the well-being of patients in hospitals via ‘Evidence-Based Design’ (EBD), I only practiced Healthcare Design for a few years. It is exciting to now be in a role where I am focused on outcome based solutions that go beyond the architecture and design and now take into account the complete building systems that affect not only healthcare but all verticals, and affect not only patients but all occupants of all buildings.

Lucas Hamilton

Manager Applied Building Science

I’m passionate about the physics of how things work and being in and around construction my whole life has afforded me the opportunity to understand our built environment from that scientific perspective. I have a deep seated reverence for both the contract between us as people and the one we share with nature and this is the lens through which I consider our efforts to build a healthier, more productive, and more durable habitat.

Meredith England

Commercial Business Development Manager

After completing my Master’s Degree in Political Science I took a job as a temporary employee for a roofing manufacturer. Six months later they came to me with an opportunity to create a new position focused on developing and growing their architectural sales. I’ve always loved buildings – especially the iconic ones. Over twenty years later and I’m still hooked.

Stanley Gatland II

Manager of Building Sciences and Comfort

I always had an interest in renewable energy and energy efficiency so after achieving my masters in mechanical engineering with a focus on thermal fluid sciences and energy systems it seemed only natural to work in building science. I like to say that I was in building science before building science was even a term.

Tamara Alvarez

Manager, Partnerships and Business Development

I remember the first night that my family stayed in our new house after living in a mobile home; it was so quiet and warm and I felt safe. I think everyone should feel that way and this company allows me to help them achieve that.

Tim Schulz

Commercial Business Development Manager

I put myself through college by working full-time at a local home improvement store, before the onset of the big boxes. Along with graduating without debt, I enjoyed helping customers choose the right construction materials for their needs and have been fortunate to build my career doing what I enjoy, helping people succeed through building better buildings for people to live, work and play.

Walking the Talk

Our own headquarters was built based on this approach, serving as a living laboratory for the concepts that Saint‑Gobain Commercial Solutions Team promotes.
