Conservatory Installation of the Year 2007– The Winners


Leading home improvement consumer advice web site has announced its annual awards for the Best Conservatories to be featured during 2007. These awards are prized by the builders as they are seen as representing the State of the Art in conservatory design and build and show the way forward for the industry and indeed, for homeowners looking for inspired choices.

Overall Winner: West Yorkshire Windows

West Yorkshire WindowsThe top honour as Overall Winner for 2007 decided the judges had to go to West Yorkshire Windows for an effort that required great technical and design skills to bring to fruition. During the year the company installed an ambitious T-Shape Conservatory design for clients in Morley near Leeds. The brief was to create a large living space for living and dining, and create a design that would complement the character of the existing property. This T Shape design incorporates a large Gable to the front with 4 pane patio doors giving ample access to the garden area. The Synseal Roof incorporates Solaris glass panels which contain a solar reflective coating to maintain a cool temperature on warm summer days. Solaris glass was also fitted to the wall frames, with Georgian Fret to the top lights.

West Yorkshire WindowsThe roof hips back to a box gutter, leaving a ridge which is parallel to the main house. Electric Roof Vents have been incorporated to create ventilation in the roof area, and underfloor heating was used to maintain a good temperature during the cold winter months.

This conservatory stands out from the crowd by having a Plasma TV screen suspended from the ridge and a chandelier! Needless to say, the customers were delighted with the finished conservatory.

West Yorkshire Windows normally install Victorian, Edwardian and simpler conservatory designs, but this conservatory highlights that they are also capable of grander bespoke efforts.

Peter Jervis of says that these installations raise the game considerably for conservatory design and build: “Conservatories remain an incredibly popular choice amongst home improvers for a number of reasons. These examples have all been installed to actually enhance the appearance and of course the use of the host building and in each case represent the very best application of conservatory skills and crafts, combined with modern building performance standards. They show others what can be achieved.”

Most Unusual Design: Richmond Oak Conservatories

Richmond OakTaking the selection for Most Unusual Design was an installation carried out by Richmond Oak Conservatories, a company that has won many accolades for its striking designs and use of traditional materials. Richmond Oak has recently installed this stunning Victorian Gothic style conservatory, built in oak and attached to a period home in Tunbridge Wells.

The conservatory includes many design features familiar to anybody with some knowledge of the Victorian Age; the windows and doors in the conservatory have a gothic shape, there are hints of complicated asymmetrical shapes in the roof glazing and a steep roof mirroring the roof of the existing property. The roof is finished with fleur-de-leys crestings and finials while the interior has a floor finish typical of the period.

The whole sits harmoniously with the existing property and looks like it has been there since it was built rather than being a recent addition. However, it has the advantages of modern double glazing, electrically controlled ventilation and under floor heating for cold winter days.

Emphasising Richmond Oak’s commitment to individual design the company has not installed two conservatories of the same design in the past two years.

Special Design Award

Franklin Conservatories thought that this striking assembly by conservatory-masters Franklin deserved the Special Design Award. A beautiful, hand built Orangery, it features High Grade timber frames, double glazed units and traditional lead detailing to the roof structure. In addition, extra wide French Doors were fitted to two elevations to give that wide open space feeling when both are open. This Orangery is the perfect garden escape and a valuable additional living room for the discerning home owner has been making its own Awards since 2003 and has now committed to sponsoring and organising the Glassex Conservatory Design Awards (, a prestigious glazing industry event that seeks to promote excellence in conservatory design and installation within the trade itself. Professional conservatory designers and installers may enter for up to 6 categories including commercial applications, to be judged by industry experts on their technical, design and installation skills. The Supreme Winner of this event will be awarded prizes worth £8,000 with the results announced at the industry’s exhibition held at the NEC in April.

Congratulations to all our monthly winners also
