Commercial Projects

When we began manufacturing bespoke glasshouses in 1952, heritage and upholding our British manufacturing standards was one of our top priorities and it still is today. 

Our greenhouses replicate the appearance of timber greenhouses and satisfy the sensitive planning conditions. By using modern materials and technology, we will provide you with a beautiful greenhouse that requires minimum maintenance. 

Our large specialist projects took off when we designed and created the original Victorian Thomas Messenger greenhouse, named after the Victorian engineer himself. This solid and beautiful aluminium greenhouse is the first choice for industry experts wishing to recreate the traditional aesthetics of timber frames with a durable alternative.

Our Commercial Greenhouses

We have had the pleasure of designing and installing beautiful greenhouses for locations where it isn’t necessarily all about the gardens, rather the experience. 

For gardens that require restoring or replicating an existing greenhouse, we offer a comprehensive design service to ensure that we maintain and convey their history within the new structure.

Something New

We have worked on several projects to create a vision of something new. From capturing the ethos of a popular 'restaurant with rooms' to creating a workable and inspiring space for a new walled garden. 

The large greenhouse at THE PIG on the Beach is at the very heart of an idyllic kitchen garden. It is the perfect example of where we worked in collaboration with the team to ensure that the greenhouse was located in a natural setting for producing crops for the home-grown menu, whilst also allowing guests to peruse during their stay. 

Since then we have worked with THE PIG on numerous occasions to build greenhouses at their other sites around the South West; including THE PIG in the Forest and THE PIG near Bath.

Something a little different


Some projects are a little out of the ordinary that require creative thinking outside of the traditional 'box'. 

We are often faced with complex designs that bring their own challenges to overcome demanding a keen eye for detail and structural expertise. 

The Logan Botanic Greenhouse breaks new boundaries; it was the first public greenhouse in the UK to be entirely heated by green energy. The four partitioned zones within the glasshouse allow for varying temperatures for the different planting themes in each zone.

Not only is it the glasshouses abilities and features that may be a little 'unusual' but sometimes the shape and size require a little more preparation. Take a look at our Hexagonal Greenhouse case study for insight into how we created the beautiful centre piece for an ornamental kitchen garden.
