Greenhouse Building Works

Alitex aluminium greenhouses are designed and manufactured with an exceptional level of precision and skill to make sure that the highest quality standard is always met. We recommend the very best foundations are laid to enhance your greenhouse life and garden aesthetics. 

Due to such engineered precision, there is very little tolerance in the attached greenhouse base. All our structures at Alitex are created with a tolerance of plus or minus 5mm and only plus 5mm for the doorway. Our highly designed structures require equally engineered foundations. 

As many of our customers prefer to have one point of contact for all aspects of their project, we offer a building works service for all our National Trust Greenhouses within 100 miles of our head office at Torberry Farm - on the Hampshire - Sussex border. For those further afield we can provide a turnkey service to source and project manage a builder local to you; so you can still have the benefit of Alitex being your one point of contact. The service extends to any required hard landscaping around the greenhouse. Bespoke greenhouses are assessed on a case by case basis. Please contact us for a building works quote. 

If you have a builder you would prefer to use, that is absolutely fine. We will provide you and your builder with a detailed ground plan and building notes to ensure the base is constructed to the correct specification. We would highly recommend taking up our base check service if you chose to use your own builder. This involves an Alitex Surveyor visiting your site to measure the base for tolerances prior to the greenhouse installation. We will also check that everything is on specification and that the site and surrounding areas are ready for the Alitex fitting team to arrive.
