Two Awards Won in the 2022 M&A Today Global Awards

IQ Glass have won two awards in this year's M&A Today Global Awards, the ‘Best Architectural Glazing Specialists’ and the ‘Best New Build Window Installation’ for our glazing installation at Camlet Way.

Specialising in architectural glazing means that many of our projects have bespoke shaped glazing or specialised glass solutions that have been developed specifically for that project. Our talented team of designers are always keen to sink their teeth into a new project and all the challenges that it presents. With years of experience under our belt, IQ are confident in taking on complex glazing designs and thinking outside the box to overcome challenges.

The award-winning window installation at Camlet Way included double height vertical sash windows on the rear elevation, complete with walk on floorlights in front of each oversized window. The two pane windows allow tonnes of natural light to flood the interior design, offering horizontal sightlines of just 21mm.

low carbon home design shortlisted for RIBA award


Claywood House Shortlisted for RIBA South Regional Awards

Claywood House has been shortlisted for the RIBA South Award! The sustainable new build was designed with the wheelchair user homeowner in mind, creating a space that she is able to independently use and travel around freely.

It was important that the glazing systems were both minimal and practical, with flush thresholds to create step-free access between indoor and outdoor environments. The obvious choice was large slim framed sliding glass doors, which are well suited to any modern home design.

Elsewhere in the low carbon home, frameless structural glazing was used to create large elevations of frameless glass windows. These frameless windows granted completely uninterrupted views of the surrounding gardens whilst flooding the internal living spaces throughout the day.

We worked with architects Ayre Chamberlain Gaunt to create a home that was both practical and minimal, suiting the family’s needs perfectly.

The winner will be announced in October this year and you can read about the other shortlisted projects here.

award for best technical innovation for the automated sliding glass rooflight


MARS Shortlisted for Best Technical Innovation

IQ Glass has been shortlisted in the Installer Awards 2022.

The MARS, a modern sliding rooflight system has been shortlisted in the GGP Installer Awards 2022. The automated rooflight system is up for the ‘Best Technical Innovation’ award.

The exclusive, modern rooflight was designed in house by the IQ team and can be manufactured in bespoke and unique shapes with few limitations on size, shape or structure. The system is completely automated, with standard motors that can accommodate glass weights of up to 320kg and larger motors to accommodate heavier glass. There are a range of technical integrations available to specify with the MARS, including weather sensors that close the rooflight when rain or strong wind is detected.

The sliding rooflight is perfect for adding ventilation to areas of high humidity such as the kitchen or bathroom, or introducing natural light to spaces where there are no windows. The MARS can be used to provide oof access when creatying modern rooftop gardens or terraces and can be integrated to work as part of a complete smart home system.

The Gem, a commercial project in Manchester, was also shortlisted in the GGP Installer Awards for the category ‘Best Commercial Installation’. The complex steel structure used small panes of structural glass, stainless steel and oak veneered wood to create a faceted gem structure.

The winners of the awards will be announced on March 10th and in the meantime, you can get in touch with the team at hello@iqglassuk.com to talk to us about your next project.
