As you may have seen on social media, we were recently visited by Rob of Glazing Vision who gave a great seminar on how to ‘Unlock Light, Air and Space’ through roof lights. We were left really inspired by the talk and thought we’d pass on our top three reasons why we encourage the use of roof lights in our projects too!
REASON 1: THE DAYLIGHT FACTOR
It’s well documented that being exposed to natural light has big benefits for our wellbeing. Not only has it been proven to boost morale, it also lowers fatigue and reduces eye strain and headaches! This is great news for the workplace especially as it means absenteeism is lowered whilst productivity is higher. There have even been studies that demonstrate how shoppers will stay longer in malls and that patients may even recover quicker in hospital!
REASON 2: YOU’LL FEEL MORE CONNECTED TO THE OUTDOORS
Did you know that roof lights let in two times the amount of daylight versus vertical glazing! The transmission of more natural light into your room also means less electrical lights are switched on thus contributing to lower running costs for your building.
REASON 3: YOU CAN GET A BETTER NIGHT SLEEP
A properly installed roof light can enhance your thermal comfort meaning a better night sleep – something everyone needs! Roof lights (by removing heat and other pollutants) can improve your air quality and provide natural ventilation. All big pluses in our book!
We hope you enjoyed this article, if you’d like further inspiration to spark your project our pinterest board is bursting with cool ideas!

We have an exciting opportunity for two new people to join our very friendly team! We are looking for an architectural technician plus (through Jobs Growth Wales,) an architectural assistant.
What will you be doing?
Our architectural technician will be working closely with our in-house architects, along with other external contacts; providing architectural design services and solutions on projects. The right candidate will be responsible for the production of all working technical drawings as well as the preparation of feasibility studies, sketch designs, 3D modelling specification and report writing.
Meanwhile our new architectural assistant will be busy assisting our principle architect in the design and delivery of 3D and technical drawings and (under supervision) will be delivering projects as well. This is a great opportunity for a recent graduate under the age of 24!
