An Orangery Befitting Clevedon Hall
18 January 2019
When it came to designing and installing a new orangery for Clevedon Hall, David Salisbury was the obvious choice for an historical building of this significance – with our vast experience of working with Listed Buildings and properties of national importance.
That said, not only were we hugely proud to be involved in this project, but we were also very fortunate to be part of the first official function in the new orangery, when Clevedon Hall hosted last week’s annual David Salisbury Sales Awards Presentation.
We will cover the story of this project in more detail once the orangery has been professionally photographed – there are certainly some notable bespoke design aspects that are worth sharing, as well as the background to the project in general. Furthermore, this is the latest in a number of high profile commercial designs that we have successfully delivered in recent years, which include the world renown Cliveden Spa refurbishment as just one example.
Every January, David Salisbury hosts a Sales Awards evening, where we reflect on the previous year, celebrate successes and consider the year ahead. When the opportunity arose to host this function in an orangery that we had just completed, it was the perfect solution.
Before the Awards got started, we enjoyed an afternoon of challenges and activities with ACF Teambuilding. These were great fun and whilst there was an element of competition, we had to work together and utilise our individual and shared strengths to solve each of the tasks: #teamwork required!
Going into the evening, there was much to celebrate, with 2018 ending in style, particularly in terms of new orders. We won’t highlight any single sales designer but when we mention the last 6 months were our best ever in terms of new sales, it is only right to congratulate the entire sales team for a great year. We’re very much all about the team and we can confidently say that we currently have the strongest group of sales designers in the orangeries and conservatories industry.
Seeing the result of our work at Clevedon Hall, it underlines everything that we are about here at David Salisbury. Bespoke design, high quality joinery manufacturing, all backed up by strong teamwork. It felt appropriate to be the first official function in the new orangery and we wish Clevedon Hall many years profitable use of their now expanded facilities.
