conservatory

Cider House, Yeovil

This is a beautiful private home in Yeovil which the owners have extended by adding an oak framed conservatory/orangery to the side of the property.

Our remit was to install lighting and underfloor heating into this project.

PROJECT OVERVIEW

The conservatory’s unique design meant that several factors had to be taken into account in order to meet the expectations of the job requirement. This additional challenge also meant that we could be creative and our project manager discussed each of these with the client and worked closely with the team to come up with solutions which were a joy to work on but which also enhanced the end result for the client.

Factors which had to be considered for the underfloor heating were the size and style of the room, type of insulation required, the finished floor material, which was to match the existing tiled kitchen floor, and the orientation of the conservatory and the effectiveness of the natural heat and light. As this was a naturally sunny spot, it was determine that the underground heating was to be supplementary and also that the thermostat needed to be placed in a location away from direct sunlight.

Factors which were considered for the lighting included the unique shape of the orangery, whether or not dimmers were required (they were) making the provision for high level led feature lighting around the actual top perimeter of the orangery and thinking ahead so that their Christmas lights could be controlled as part of the main system, great touch!

As part of keeping the clients safe we advised that a smoke detector be installed to the space as it was now a part of the building and met certain criteria.

Throughout the entire process, manufacturer’s instructions were followed to the letter, all good manufacturers will honour the warranty period of their system if and only if their instructions have been followed. The clients were provided with their certification upon completion of the works.
