ABOUT OUR CONSERVATORY / ORANGERY DESIGN SERVICE
Each conservatory / orangery design project is unique – reflecting the customer’s personal wishes in the design.
This design service (for which we charge between £500 to £800) includes a site survey, discussions, initial designs and specification for a builder.  The design we agree with you is the outcome of your requirements benefitting from our experience and recommendation and is presented as 3D lifestyle drawings that enables everyone to accurately visualise the look and layout of the project outcome and immediate surrounds. If architect's drawings have been done our second drawings help everyone to appreciate what the outcome will be and how it fits into the surrounding environment.  If you wish to use one of our associate companies to quote for the building of the project we can help with product research with showroom and installation visits. 

This service is proving to very popular as it draws on our wide independent experience and skill in presenting understandable drawings and saving time by not having to trawl through umpteen companies all of whom have their own narrow agenda and product range.

TYPICAL EXAMPLES OF OUR CONSERVATORY / ORANGERY DESIGN SERVICE:
A big part of the design service we offer is to answer the question .... "What can we do to make this old conservatory habitable all year round in a design that is contemporary and future proof?"

Re the two Brighton Project images, in this example a customer needed to unpick the previous additions to the front to this desirable property which backs onto the beach. The property is used for holiday lets and needs plenty of room for up to 9 to10 people coming and going with their luggage and possibly wheelchairs.  The brief was to release the front door to give an appropriately stylish entrance and to modernise the front room which had been too cold in the winter to use and was very dated.
Using our design service involving close and detailed consultation with the customer we created an easy to relate to 3D drawing which the customer was releived to see accurately met the customers requirements and expectations.

Re the two Henfield Project images, in this example the old white conservatory was too small and not habitable all year round (to hot and too cold as usual!)
