Plan For Your Winter Orangery NowPublished on 5th July 2017
If you’re already dreaming of a glazed Christmas, your timing is perfect – homeowners looking to install a Christmas orangery should be considering their options now, according to conservatory experts.
A bespoke glass extension of any kind, cannot be created overnight. As a unique piece of architectural design, a modern orangery by Apropos, takes time to devise, create and install. And, depending on whether or not your orangery requires planning permission, the whole process, from the point of sale, will ordinarily take between 16 and 26 weeks to complete.
A glass and aluminium orangery by Apropos in nothing like the cheap, ‘off the shelf’ varieties that can be cobbled together in a matter of hours. Apropos’ critically acclaimed designs bring Grand Designs-style living to properties – providing a true statement of modern, contemporary living; and, as such, much planning and preparation is required to make the your dream home extension, into a reality.
After the initial bespoke design has been agreed, and an order has been placed, a site survey will be undertaken for the proposed orangery. If your orangery does not require planning permission General Arrangement Drawings (GAD) for the lean-to conservatory will then be arranged for approval by the client.
Once the GAD have been approved, your new stunning contemporary structure will be manufactured, and an installation date agreed with the client. Depending on the size of your oranangery, installation could take between a couple of days and a week.
During this whole process, you will need to organise a builder to undertake preparatory and post-installation work for the non glass and aluminium components of your build, as well as arrange other tradesmen that may be required to work on their lean-to conservatory project.
Therefore, it is important that those looking to spend Christmas under glazed skies, comfortably enveloped in the warmth of your new thermally insulated and surprisingly cosy orangery, in time should begin considering their options now. So, a little time now, preparing and creating the perfect space for you and your family, makes perfect sense, in order to reap benefits come the most wonderful time of the year – and in the decades to come.Return to Blog
