GGP Conservatory & Orangery Awards Finalists 2019


We were recently lucky enough to be nominated for the Best Refurbishment award at the GGP Conservatory & Orangery Awards 2019! Whilst we didn’t win the final award, we were overjoyed to attend the final in Manchester at the Midland Hotel. We attended alongside a number of other reputable companies in the industry and had an amazing time. We are so proud that we wanted to tell you all about it with this blog.


The Project

We were nominated for this award after the completion one of our favourite ever projects. We had been given a brief to transform a woodgrain Edwardian style conservatory into something which looked more modern and was more energy efficient, enabling them to use it all year round. The result was a stunning new Ultraroof extension which used super insulated columns, a tiled replacement roof with part glazing and incredible style to really give that WOW factor!


The Event

The awards were held on 30th October in Manchester and organised by GGP Magazine. Attendees were treated to a 3-course meal with wine which we enjoyed thoroughly! There were also appearances from some really well-known faces. The night was hosted by BBC Breakfast presenter Louise Minchin, who roused the audience with an inspirational speech about hard work, determination and reaching your goals. We enjoyed mixing with a room full of well-respected, fellow professionals and we hope to do it all over again next year!


Here at Durham Design we are proud to have been finalists at these prestigious awards and are passionate about producing transformations to impress!
