The Estate Workshop at The Newt in Somerset

IQ Projects are working on a new and exciting project within The Newt development, creating glass meeting rooms with a range of internal glazing systems.

The Newt in Somerset will soon benefit from frameless internal glazing systems, creating light filled offices for the team based there. A number of meeting rooms will be engineered with single glazed, frameless glass partitions and frameless glass balustrades will be used for an extremely minimal design.

To form the highly glazed meeting rooms, frameless single glazed screens will be installed. The screens will offer privacy for the rooms whilst maintaining a light and airy interior design where light and views can travel freely.

As the screens are inside the building, they are not required to have a thermal performance and therefore have been specified in single glazing.

In keeping with the fixed frameless glazing, a glazed frameless pivot door with two fixed sidelights and a fixed top light will grant entrance to the largest meeting room. The glass pivot door is one of the most minimal internal glass door systems available, giving the appearance of a simple casement door when closed and only revealing the bespoke opening when opened. A fire rated glass partition screen has also been specified within the office space, comprising of 3 panes of glass and again in single glazing.

 IQ will be providing the external window systems as well as the internal glazing systems, for a coherent overall design. Large elevations of frameless structural glazing will be used to introduce tons of natural light into the modern offices, using our Invisio thermally broken structural glazing system.

The Invisio structural glazing system offers unparalleled performance paired with the most minimal glass design. It is the only fully tested, thermally broken structural glazing system on the market and you can download the CAD details of the system to see how the system can be incorporated in your project.

The project follows the glazing work we did at The Story of Gardening Museum, where IQ installed 4 metre tall sliding glass door systems to grant entrance to the museum building. The oversized sliding doors were used in conjunction with frameless structural glazing, opting for the most minimal design to allow the building to blend into the rural surroundings. The floor to ceiling glass walls an automated opening door systems offer uninterrupted views of the nearby Treetop Walkway, flooding the interior space with light throughout the day.
