Design & Engineering Service

Our team of skilled Design and Structural Engineers have years of experience working on all kinds of greenhouses for personal and professional projects. From cottage gardens and London town houses, to walled gardens and large estates, we design and build highly engineered Victorian glasshouses for a range of public and private sites.

Our Design and Engineering Service is ideal if you’re looking for something outside of our National Trust Collection, whether it’s a bespoke free standing structure, lean-to greenhouse or a unique shape.

Alongside our design process, we provide a complete project management service to work closely with you or any other professionals you may have working on the project. We will communicate throughout the process to build a greenhouse that accommodates the desired growing and structural requirements.

Using innovative design solutions and the latest 3D computer-aided design software, we create a virtual structure prior to manufacture. 

If your structure is complex or is in a high risk weather area and falls outside of our standard engineering requirements, we recommend investing in our Design & Engineering Service up front – an ideal opportunity to proceed with the design when not all final engineering details or aesthetics of the structure have been confirmed. 

The Design & Engineering Service includes:

  • We visit your site* to discuss location, preferences and carry out a survey. 
  • We will carry out detailed investigations to establish local site conditions combined with wind and snow loads that will form the basis of the design.
  • We work with you to create some draft concepts, sharing sketches, initial 3D models or images of similar projects.
  • Once the drafts have been confirmed, it will go through to our Design team to create a set of detailed ground plan drawings. Once these are confirmed and signed off the groundworks and wall construction can commence.

*This is dependant on location and complexity of the build e.g. attached or adjacent buildings, sloping site, conservation area etc.
