What does sustainable mean?

Some think sustainability means you recycle, reduce energy, and are more efficient in operations. But at Tanglewood, we define sustainability differently. All of the efforts toward energy conservation and recycling are necessary but…

What is the goal of sustainability?

We believe to be sustainable means belonging to a vibrant, thriving community that will be a sustainable, cultural environment for our children and our children’s children.

What are we doing to accomplish that?

The Advanced Manufacturing Professionals (AMP) Program created through our 501c3 Untangled Minds seeks to help students acquire the skills and perspective every business owner wants to see in their employees. Bundled into a three semester course, the AMP program’s primary focus is to develop students who (1) Take ownership and initiative, (2) Seek to understand what owners and managers of a company are passionate about, and (3) See and do what is required without having to be asked or told.

Does that sound like an employee you would like to hire?

It is these skills wrapped around the technical skill component along with the strong partnership of community members, community businesses, and education that advances student skills, perspective, and ways of thinking.

After all, to establish a sustainable community, we first must develop a sustainable workforce for our growing business partners.

The Beauty of Stained Glass in a Conservatory

Would you love stained glass in your conservatory?

Many conservatory owners love the fascinating interplay of light and color both in the designs of the stained glass panels as well as the colored accents it throws across the room.

Tanglewood’s bespoke stained glass can be designed in virtually any form and color.  From subtly colored accent to bold primary statement, the design is as personal as your conservatory… and your life.

The owners of each of these designs worked together with the Tanglewood design team to create their personal palette.

“…the stained glass panels that Tanglewood created for our conservatory definitely make the room our absolute favorite. They were able to personalize the design so it perfectly reflects our unique style.” Tanglewood conservatory owner

The use of stained glass in historical conservatories was relatively rare however. The conservatories of the past were designed to conserve and display plant life. In a departure from tradition, the iconic Conservatory of Flowers in San Francisco incorporates a row of colored panels around the base of its dome, an effect that accentuates the building in the same manner as a typical cornice.

The effect is stunning.
