First launched in 2007 by the Conservuideatory Association to provide a Good Practice Guide for companies selling, designing, specifying and installing Conservatories and was revised in January 2012 as regulations and legal requirements changed.
The Conservatory Association Technical working party has fully updated the new Guide. Changes include:
Russell Day, GGF Technical Officer: “The new guide addresses the many issues and demands the industry is now experiencing such as the increase in non-exempt conservatories, conservatories with enhanced features to meet the aesthetic aspirations of homeowners and an increase in the number and complexity of structural Orangery type glazed structures.
Mark Hanson, Chairman of the GGF Conservatory Association: “Consumers installing modern conservatories in their home now expect them to be everyday living spaces for throughout the year. I am pleased the GGF has revised the Guide to reflect the homeowners’ expectations and the legislative changes to incorporate a wider range of glazed structure requirements within the Guide.”
The new Guide will be sent in printed format to all GGF Members and available for free download from the Members Area of the GGF website Members will be able to order extra printed copies are required at a special Members’ discount from the GGF shop.
