New Case Study: The Oaksmere Hotel, Suffolk
Based in the heart of Suffolk, The Oaksmere Hotel is renowned for its picturesque views and exceptional service. The design focus of this project was heavily influenced by the aim of maintaining these outstanding qualities for the hotel.
For this project, it was decided that a Solis Glazing System would be the best glazing solution for the needs of The Oaksmere, due to the high-performance capabilities of this glazing system and the design flexibility that it affords.
The first of the glazing options suggested for The Oaksmere Hotel was a bespoke Solis Ridgelight to be installed above their main entrance. This was set at a 25o angle with the intention of allowing the maximum amount of natural daylight into this area of the hotel.
The second Solis Ridgelight that Roofglaze helped incorporate into The Oaksmere was placed above the recently extended in-house restaurant. This was a smaller rooflight than the one installed at the hotel’s entrance. Both Ridgelights share the same glazing thickness and glass specification.
The final instalment of this project is a Solis Pyramid rooflight, located at the centre of the hotel’s restaurant. This rooflight measures 4,200mm across all four sides of the based to give a total glass surface area of 17,640mm.
This project was an overwhelming success for both Roofglaze and our clients, which leaves guests at The Oaksmere Hotel surrounded with natural scenic views throughout their stay.
In order to create a comfortable and safe environment for the guests of The Oaksmere hotel the following specifications were considered crucial:
– Light Transmission: 64%
– G-value: 0.36
– Centre Pane U-value: 1.0 W/m2K
– Overall System U-value: 1.8 W/m2K
– Wind load 640 N/m2
– Snow load 750 N/m2
