Kitchen & Orangery in Berkshire

Initial Consultation & 

engagement 

We chose Dave Jones and his team for our kitchen, orangery and related work for three reasons 
  • Dave listened to our requirements and was able to visualise the way to add the orangery and reshape the existing roofline and tie in with previous extensions including clear drawings and a “to be” picture.
  • Farrow and Jones offered to organise drawings, structural work and planning applications as well as the build which allowed us to agree a predictable plan for the build of the Kitchen Orangery 
  • Dave introduced us to clients with relevant similar work which could assure us on the plans and also he assured us that we would have the same team including Chris Male a highly skilled kitchen maker

Project Management 

Dave prepared a week by week plan for the project which he stuck to. Dave communicated well with us as the home owners, the kitchen build team and also with the additional trades that we brought in including the wood flooring, worktop and underfloor heating to ensure dates were met and the end finish achieved. In particular a flush ground floor across our main rooms was important to us and Dave ensured all the necessary preparation and screed work tied in to achieve this. Dave responded to a small number of additional requirements which were absorbed within the timeline. He attended every day when scheduled.

Bespoke Kitchen Design.

Chris worked with us to evolve a design which allowed us to have a large island and an easy to use kitchen with all the storage and facilities we wanted. This was confirmed to us with drawings and perspectives of the design.

His attention to detail in design was excellent in ensuring proportion across the whole kitchen and the location and layout of drawers and fittings. All the units were bespoke and the standard of finish internally and externally was very good. He had a specialist achieve an excellent standard of paint finish. He took particular care in fitting to ensure alignment with the windows, door spaces and overall dimensions to give us the best working areas and optimise positions of the cupboards and island.

All the design elements we asked for were delivered with excellent joinery and Chris promptly addressed a couple of snagging points and also absorbed a couple of additional items into the timeline without impacting the overall end date for the project.

He communicated well with us and the wider workforce including the fabricators for the worktops and prepared everything to ensure we got an excellent result for our kitchen which we enjoy everyday.

Externally Dave’s team have successfully updated the overall facing to the rear of our house 
to bring it in to be a cohesive design. We also subsequently revamped and relayed our patio 
to curve across the whole back of the house which completes the finished result. 

The Team 

Dave’s team were professional in approach and delivered high standard of finish. As they are regularly working together on similar projects the complexities were identified earlier and we were helped through the choices to be made to achieve what we wanted.
Dave’s team covered all the structural and first and second fit apart from plumbing and flooring finishes. His team showed a good attention to detail and delivered good finished surfaces and delivered an excellent level floor surface and worked to tie in both existing and new building work. Care was taken to separate the work underway from the rest of the house to minimise dust and disruption and the team planned noisy and disruptive activities to fit in with any constraints we had. The site was left tidy and safe every day.

The End Result

Everyday we enjoy the light and open orangery. It took us a little time to make best use of all the storage and also to get the right furniture for the rest of the room to tie in with the kitchen but the end result is a great pleasure and excellent for entertaining. As we have also opened our whole downstairs to a more open plan design we feel we are in a different house although we have lived at the same address for some time !

Externally Dave’s team have successfully updated the overall facing to the rear of our house to bring it in to be a cohesive design. We also subsequently revamped and relayed our patio to curve across the whole back of the house which completes the finished result.

We use the bi fold doors on more days than we expected to bring us nearer to our garden.

There is one change we have made is that as we are south facing is to add a reflective coating onto the orangery glass to keep the kitchen at a good temperature throughout the year.

Dave returned to promptly address the couple of snagging issues we had initially.
