We just wanted to write to say what a fantastic job you’ve done on our conservatory. You were reliable, hard-working, polite and very skilled at the task in hand and believe us, that combination is very rare in firms these days. – Jane Moore 02/04/2015
With a 3 year background already in building and renovating work on properties, Mark came down to London from Cumbria when he was 19 years old and started working for Bartholomew Conservatories, one of the top bespoke hardwood conservatory companies. He then went on to work for another elite company Oak Leaf Conservatories and was asked to be their Contracts Manager, a job which he was very accomplished at however he missed being ‘on the tools’.
In the time that Mark worked for these companies, he was working on Conservatories and Orangeries both nationwide and abroad in Germany, Holland and the USA, including prestigious projects on Staten Island, New York.
Chelsea Flower Show and Hampton Court Flower Show are opportunities for conservatory companies to show off their imagination and skills and produce ornate buildings to show that anything is possible in wood and glass, so Mark had the honour of fitting some of these buildings. Two examples of Oak Leaf Conservatories buildings that Mark fitted several times are below:-
Mark continues to stay in contact with and have excellent relationships with most of the top companies in the bespoke hardwood conservatories sector and for many years has been recommended by them to their clients for the maintenance of their buildings, once their Guarantees have expired.
In 1994 Mark went on to start his own niche business, initially with his younger brother Stephen, specialising in conservatory repairs and maintenance, upgrading timber conservatories and also supplying and fitting new replacement bespoke hardwood Conservatories and Orangeries. Because he has worked on all makes of timber conservatories, this puts him in the unique position of understanding the strengths and weaknesses of all conservatory designs and specifications across the board and most importantly, how well they perform over time. In turn, we are constantly improving the specifications of the conservatory components we use, whilst ensuring that they do not detract but only enhance the beauty of a timber and glass conservatory.
After more than 30 years in the business, Mark continues to love the challenge that each job brings him because every bespoke conservatory is of course different. Meeting new clients, trying to solve their conservatory dilemmas and enhance their homes with buildings which are often the heart of the home is what Mark enjoys the most. Many clients stay in touch and continue to call on our services and advice over the years.
