Our expertise and knowledge lie in highly technical architectural glazing constructions including structural glazing and minimalistic glazing systems. Quality and technical expertise are woven into every element of our specification, design, and installation process, ensuring that we offer the UK’s premier service to architects and specifiers. We work alongside architects and other building professionals enabling them to achieve their clients desired design aesthetics.
We offer a consultancy, design, manufacturing, delivery and installation service. Depending on the scope of work and what is more suited to the individual project, there are 3 options for our installation services. These include installation on site, IQ supervisor provided to manage works by a local team or supply only with installation instructions and guidance via email/call/video call.
The systems will be shipped overseas along with installation instructions to be installed by experienced professionals working on the project. Guidance from IQ can be given via email, phone call or video call.
Once the systems arrive at the project site, an IQ project manager will come to oversee the installations carried out by local glazing installers and ensure all systems are installed and functioning correctly.
This service is a complete design and installation package and includes an IQ Project manager and IQ installation team going to the project site for a complete design and installation service from start to finish.
