Daniel Connal Partnership was delighted to be appointed as Quantity Surveyor on this interesting project to design and construct an Orangery extension on this 19th Century,Grade II Listed, former Rectory in Dorset. We also provided CDM services on the scheme.
Nicolas Jacob Architects, designed the orangery to provide a bright, spacious and elegant space to fulfil the client’s brief, Great care was taken to ensure that the new orangery became a coherent development of the attractive and imposing existing building, enhancing its overall appearance.
The exterior render of the orangery was bespoke and manufactured in Scotland to match the colour of the existing stonework, 2nd hand pre-weathered slate was sourced to match the existing roof of the main house. The interior was treated with equal care, local lime stone with a slate inset provided a practical and stylish finish, which incorporated hidden sockets and under floor heating. Fibrous plaster was used to create a traditional style fruit embossed cornicing, reminiscent of the era of the existing house.
The scheme was procured via a two stage tender process, allowing the client to choose a contractor with appropriate expertise but also monitor costs closely. Daniel Connal Partnership oversaw this process and continually tracked the costs as the project progressed.
This interesting project was delivered on time and onbudget – the client delighted with this stylish addition to their home.
