High performance laminated, coloured glass from Romag is set to light the way as the centrepiece of a new elemental garden design feature in Cheshire.

The contemplative Linear Garden has been newly created at Sci-Tech Park in Daresbury, one of two National Science and Innovation Campuses established in 2006 to provide commercial support and world-class technology facilities for fast growing high-tech companies.A striking pathway of light will wind its way through the 10-acre site, reflecting the narrative of science moving forward through visionary re-imaginings of scientific greats such as physicist Albert Einstein, and mathematician and astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus.

Five coloured garden areas have been created, branching off this pathway in the order that the colours appear in the electromagnetic spectrum:  red, yellow, green, blue and violet.These will be home to a collection of striking structures and designs that have been integrated with a variety of Vanceva architectural glass panels cut and shaped to a high tolerance using Romag’s water-jet cutting technology at its HQ in Consett, County Durham.

More than 25 sections of glass have been produced and supplied by Romag, which also provided additional technical and processing expertise to Broadbent Studios, the Chester-based designers behind the garden concept.Project manager Mandy Taylor said that the project had benefitted from technical support from Romag throughout, which included the specification of processes, glass thickness and recommendations for a decorative interlayer supplier.

She added: “It was important to use a coloured Vanceva layer and decorative printed layer to get the required visuals.Here, Romag impressed with its technical experience and expertise of using these processes together.”

Paul Cruddace, Romag’s sales and marketing director, added: “We were delighted to be involved with this innovative, interesting project.

“It showcases our expertise and skills in laminating structural, architectural glass to the highest quality and specification for ground breaking and innovative public projects.”
