Project Overview

  • Location: Princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire
  • Project Tags: Landscaping, Patio, Bi-Folding Doors, Underfloor Heating
  • Customer: Mr & Mrs Collins

Mr & Mrs Collins came to us after we had completed a neighbour's conservatory. They were looking for something very modern and contemporary which would let in lots of light and not eat too much into their garden.

We went down the route of a powder coated aluminium glass extension which would achieve both objectives.

No planning needed as we were keeping the conservatory under the 3 metre projection permitted rights.

We dug out the ground level, dug a small foundation to hold building work, and concreted. We used two courses of bricks to get the base up to floor level, which was then damp proof tanked and 100mm of concrete brought us up to a level for insulation, underfloor heating and screeded floor.

Powder coated steels were used to create a goalpost which the roof could then sit on. Large glass frames were used on each side and powder coated bi-folding doors across the front which when opened would open up the house to the garden.

Under floor heating was used and a screeded floor brought the floor up to match the existing level of the house. Wall lights were installed and two in-floor double sockets were put into the screed to provide electrical outlets.

Mr & Mrs Collins will be able to use this room all year round with the underfloor heating keeping it warm in the winter and the Pilkington active blue glass keeping the sun out in the summer.
