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.
We have had the pleasure of designing and installing beautiful greenhouses for a number of public gardens and commercial locations, helping to create a memorable experience.
Growing and Entertaining Spaces
We have worked on several public garden projects to create a vision of something new.
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.
Take a look through our past projects. You will find a selection of case studies involving our National Trust Greenhouses as well as our Bespoke structures in a multitude of colours, shapes and sizes.
Over the years we have been involved in some truly awe inspiring projects, working with many of the figureheads within the horticultural industry.
Design & Engineering
Our team of skilled Design and Structural Engineers have years of experience working on all kinds of greenhouses for personal and professional projects.
Some projects are a little out of the ordinary…
We are often faced with complex designs that require creative thinking outside of the traditional ‘box’. They 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.
Lucy Hart, Head Gardener at Fulham Palace
“We needed to restore what was marvellous about the Gardens and the glasshouse, with reference to what went before but with the benefits of modern thinking and technology. Alitex have done exactly that with the glasshouse structure.”
David Elton, Director of the Lime Wood Group
“I don’t think you appreciate the detail until you experience it head on, it’s a quality build.”
Darren Venables, Estate Manager at Chewton Glen
“I have been so impressed with the heating system in our Alitex. Exactly a week ago I sowed 250 pots of Basil seedlings and a week later they have all germinated and will be moving into our tomato house next week.”
