Orangery Solutions Provides Island Style

Orangery Solutions was commissioned to supply a structure for a prestigious project in the Channel Islands.  Due to the large size of the installation it required one of the company’s specially reinforced structures to be produced in order to meet the architect’s specifications.

The private home, based in Jersey, required special planning permission as the orangery was 8m x 8m and incorporated a 6.2 x 6.2 m lantern.  Working alongside the team of architects and builders, initially we provided professional structural calculations to ensure all specifications could be met and guaranteed. Subsequently, we then supplied the appropriate products and materials to complete the project.

Situated in one of Jersey’s most highly sought after areas, the house is now one of the largest properties on the island encompassing more than 15,000 sq ft.  The homeowners had looked at the market carefully and specified a thermally efficient structure which would add value to the home and provide a room that could be used all year.

A specially constructed glass lantern roof was produced which incorporated high performance glass units to ensure that year round usage could be achieved.

The Orangery Solutions patented cassette system with integrated posts gives many structural advantages, and for this particular project it can withstand a 1.3 tonne wind side pressure with ease.  This system incorporates all aspects of the structure from floor level up, excluding glazed frames.

As our products are supplied in-house, this simplified installation and removed the need for various different trades people to be involved, resulting in the job being finished in half the time but perhaps  more importantly this halved the cost.

As every finished orangery should be commensurate throughout it is essential to evaluate the ‘final touch’ to ensure that it not only merges well aesthetically with a property but that it will last.

The superior external finishes available come with a choice of fascias manufactured in either GRP or powder coated aluminium. Traditional or ultra modern fascia options have been developed to complement all property types.

Paul Nellis, Managing Director at Orangery Solutions comments, “The orangery in Jersey was built to the exact specification of the architect’s design and homeowners wishes.  As an extremely high specification job, which required only the best structural products, our system proved to be the only one able to meet the requirements. Our system eliminates any potential technical or structural problems after installation.”

“It is vital that the structure is fortified and built to last which means careful research at the planning stage.  As the entire system from floor to roof is available from one supplier this makes life much easier making installation more straightforward.”

The homeowner is delighted with the finished project which has led to other referrals on the island for Orangery Solutions, with a further large orangery installation to be completed soon.
