Services

At Altus Services, we have designed, built and supplied bespoke hardwood conservatories, orangeries, windows and doors for over 10 years. From initial consultation throughout all stages of your project, we carefully listen to your needs and invite your input to ensure your total satisfaction with the finished product.

Free quote and CAD drawings where applicable

The first step in any project is simply to assess your needs. Following an in-depth consultation to discuss your requirements and talk about your objectives, we can produce a free no-obligation quote tailored to your needs. With the budget agreed, the designers will help you decide on the look and feel. Whether you choose traditional, contemporary, sophisticated or minimalist, our team will produce a design that inspires you.

Planning permission for conservatories

It is possible that your project will require some form of local authority approval. Our team are happy to advise with regard to planning matters and routinely consult local authority planning departments, building control officers and architects. Our team can do all of this on your behalf, if you so require.

Building regulations for conservatories

In general domestic conservatories are exempt under UK building regulations. We have listed below some of the exemptions requirements under building regulations 1991 (as amendments).

These criteria must be met for a conservatory to be classified as exempt:

  • Built at ground level

  • Conservatories are less than 30 square metres in floor area

  • At least 50% of area that will form the external boundary / edge of the conservatory must be glazed and 75% of the roof area to be covered with either glass or polycarbonate

  • All conservatories must be separated from the house by an external quality door, patio door or French doors.

  • Glazing and the electrical installation must comply with IEE and building regulations

Regardless of whether Full Building Regulations Approval is required, we follow the Best Building Practice Guidelines. Our team will be able to provide you with advice by looking at each project on an individual basis.

If your question is urgent or you would prefer to talk to someone, please contact us and we will do our best to be of assistance.

Supply and installation for retail customers

At Altus Services we have a network of local installers and builders to help us complete your project. Over the years we have worked on many projects where the client has used their own builder or worked with either a local architect and/or main contractor — we are happy to work in whichever way suits your individual needs.

If you are a retail customer and would like more information, please contact us and we can give you the name of your local contact.
