This page is specifically addressed to Architects, Developers or Builders who have been commissioned to design or construct an orangery or conservatory for clients.
If you have already prepared a design and specification for your orangery or conservatory
and you are now looking for quotations for your client, you need merely send us copies of
scaled drawings along with any specification notes and we will prepare a detailed
quotation for you. If we require any supplemental information (such as photos of the
property) we will ask you.
On the other hand if you prefer for us to undertake the design and specification we can
do that. We can take a brief directly from you, or we can visit the site, meet the client
and prepare a design proposal and quotation. We will keep you in the discussion loop and
run any proposal by you before presentation to the client. In most cases there is no
charge for this service to you or the client.
We can also prepare a digital image of the proposed structure (the quality of the image is
so good you would think the orangery or conservatory had already been built!).
Supply and Fit
We can work on the basis of 'Supply and fit' of the orangery or conservatory, whereby we
design and build the superstructure on a base and walls prepared by others. In this case
we would undertake the entire superstructure including, in the case of an orangery, the
flat roof. That way the client has the benefit and peace of mind of a 10 year warranty
which covers the entire orangery structure; any post installation problems such as roof
leaks, they need only call us.
The Supply and Fit service includes a base plan and structural calculations for the
orangery or conservatory, plus working drawings for the superstructure (manufacture will
only commence once working drawings have been signed off).
We can if required, particularly where we are being appointed by a small builder,
undertake Planning and Building Regulations applications
All inclusive Design & Build package
Alternatively, we can provide a complete Design & Build service (for details click on
Design & Build on the menu bar above).
Planning & Listed Building Applications & Building Regulations
Once appointed we will supply you with drawings and specifications, including structural
calculations necessary for you to complete any required for Planning and Listed Building
applications and Building Regulations. In the case of a Listed Application, or where
required we will also provide you with material samples and section drawings of joinery
Free Advice on Design and Price
We strongly recommend, unless you have a high level of expertise and product
knowledge in specifying orangeries or conservatories, you do not submit Planning or
Building Regulations applications before at least consulting potential suppliers regarding
design and budget. The last thing you or your client want is to find out that you have
obtained consent for a structure that is fundamentally flawed in design or is way beyond
the client's budget.
