How long does it take to build an Orangery

The time it takes to build an orangery can vary depending on various factors such as the size of the orangery, the complexity of the design, and the materials used. Typically, building an orangery can take anywhere from 3 to 6 months.

The initial stage of the process involves designing the orangery, obtaining necessary planning permissions, and building regulations approvals, and preparing the site. This stage can take a few weeks to a few months depending on the complexity of the project.

Once the design is finalised and the necessary approvals are obtained, the construction phase begins. This involves preparing the foundations, erecting the framework, installing windows and doors, and completing the roof. The duration of this phase can vary depending on the size and complexity of the orangery, but it usually takes several weeks to a few months.

After the main construction is completed, the orangery will need to be decorated and finished with fixtures and fittings such as heating, lighting, and flooring. This stage can take a few weeks to a month to complete.

The building phases of an orangery can be broken down into several key stages:

1. Design

The initial phase involves designing the orangery, which includes developing a plan that meets the needs and preferences of the homeowner and obtaining any necessary planning permissions and building regulations approvals. At Surrey Orangery we also provide a computer generated view of what your new Orangery will look like in situ. Take a look out some of previous drawings.

    2. Site preparation

    The next phase involves preparing the site for construction, which includes clearing the area, levelling the ground, and laying the foundation.

    3. Framework

    Once the site is prepared, the construction of the framework can begin. This involves erecting the walls, which may be constructed using brick, timber, or a combination of materials, and installing the roof.

    4. Glazing

    After the framework is completed, the next phase involves installing the rooflights, windows and doors, which can be made from a variety of materials, including timber, aluminium, and UPVC.

    5. Finishing

    Once the glazing is installed, the orangery will need to be finished with heating, lighting, and flooring. This may also include decorating the interior of the orangery.

    6. Landscaping

    Finally, the exterior of the orangery can be landscaped to complement the surrounding area and to create an aesthetically pleasing view from inside the orangery.
