Scope of our work

This was a ‘between growing seasons’ project, starting the design in September 2021 and with an eye always on ensuring the new glasshouse was fully ready and operation for the following busy Spring period.

The garden centre client came to us wanting a high-quality glasshouse facility in which the climate could be easily controlled and maintained to ensure the best growing environment for bedding plants of all varieties.

Our team completed the glasshouse build in just five months, including the installation of a heating system, automated temperature-controlled ventilation and shade screening.

The Results

Key to this project was effective planning of and management of the built to ensure handover ahead of the Spring season.

Robert Palmer, director of Palmers Garden Centre Group was delighted with the service he received.

He said: “We’ve worked with CambridgeHOK for many years now as they have built a number of glasshouses for us, all to a very high standard, including this latest addition at Enderby. As always, we have been very happy with the quality of the glasshouse and the service provided, and we will certainly use CambridgeHOK again for our future glasshouse requirements.”
