If our construction service is being provided our constructors take care of the logistical arrangments of getting the materials to the site. They need reasonable and safe access to do so.
If building the Greenhouse yourself or contracting a third party to construct it, you will need to choose a location immediately adjacent to where the delivery vehicle can go to store the Greenhouse kit temporarily until you can build it.
Normally there will be one or two long boxes – and typically one pallet of glass 2.2m high, but we can confirm exactly what number, size and weight of items there will be on request. From the point of view of weather affecting the materials, the boxes and pallet of glass can be left outside if necessary for a week or two without any issue as they are wrapped, but if you are going to store them longer it would be best to have indoor (e.g. in a garage) or under cover storage space.
Silicone can be used when installing the glass, not so much to keep the glass on but to make the glass part of the structure – adding rigidity, particularly for the gables and roof. L profile bars can be fitted along the roof which add strength but also are useful for hanging baskets. Lock nuts can be fitted to certain nuts and bolts. Extra rubber glazing strip can be fitted to areas where it is not normally fitted. A lower eaves height can be selected which will reduce the wind loading on the structure.
