It all started with a visit to our ShowSite at the Scotsdales Garden Centre in Great Shelford to discuss ideas, possibilities and to get an idea of ballpark costs.
Once the overall design and budget criteria had been outlined a site survey appointment was agreed. On site all elements of the design and build were talked through with the client to ensure we had correctly interpreted their exact needs
A formal quotation and design proposal were then submitted and accepted. Master drawings and specification were prepared as part of the contractual agreement supported by our ten year insurance backed guarantee.
A final site survey was then undertaken prior to proceeding with ground work and the manufacture of the orangery. Our usual process is to build footings, foundations, insulated base and insulated 300 mm brick cavity walls but as the clients want to render the outside of the main house in the future, we constructed this Orangery using rendered timber framed walls which were completed in two weeks.

The hardwood and double glazed units were then delivered and the structure erected over the next fourteen days. Electrical work was then completed including underfloor heating. Floor screed was laid and internal walls plastered followed by skirting board over the finished floor.
This project was completed in just 6 weeks to the entire satisfaction of our client. And with our 10 year insurance backed guarantee in place, they can rest easy and enjoy their new Orangery for years to come.
