Case Study
Replacing a Conservatory with a SIPS House Extension in Just 11 Days

Mr & Mrs Walker, homeowners who are looking to upgrade their living space, embarked on a project to replace their outdated conservatory with a modern house extension. With a focus on efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and quality, they chose Heritage Garden Studios to bring their vision to life.

Challenges: The project aimed to provide additional living space without the lengthy timelines and high labour costs typically associated with traditional brick-and-mortar construction methods. Additionally, ensuring structural stability and compliance with building regulations were key considerations for the project.

Solution: Opting for Structural Insulated Panel System (SIPS) construction, Heritage Garden Studios offered a rapid and cost-effective solution. By leveraging the speed and simplicity of SIPS assembly and utilising ground screws instead of traditional foundations, the project timeline was significantly shortened, and labour costs were reduced.

Key Features:

  • Utilisation of SIPS panels for walls, roof, and floors, providing rapid assembly and excellent thermal performance at a fraction of the cost of traditional brick construction.
  • Implementation of ground screw foundations, eliminating the need for time-consuming excavation and concrete pouring, further reducing labour costs and construction time.
  • Collaboration with skilled tradespeople and suppliers to coordinate seamless installation of components and finishes while ensuring high-quality results.
  • Incorporation of energy-efficient features, including insulation and double-glazed windows, to enhance comfort and sustainability while reducing long-term energy costs.

Outcome: Thanks to the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of SIPS construction and ground screw foundations, Heritage Garden Studios completed the house extension project in just 11 days. The new space seamlessly integrated with the existing property, offering enhanced functionality and aesthetics for the Walkers to enjoy at a much lower cost compared to traditional methods.

Comparison with Traditional Brick Extension: As for the average time to build a 6m x 4m brick extension, it typically ranges from 6 to 12 weeks, depending on factors such as site preparation, weather conditions, and availability of skilled labour. This highlights the significant time savings achieved with SIPS construction, making it a much faster and cheaper option for homeowners seeking to expand their living space.

Together with Cusworth to the north, it forms the civil parish of Sprotbrough and Cusworth, boasting a combined population of 12,134 in 2011.

The electoral ward of Sprotbrough, extending to include several rural villages to the north and west, had a population of 11,143. Sprotbrough’s rich history dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086, where it’s recorded as ‘Sproteburg,’ likely meaning ‘Sprot’s borough.’

Throughout the years, the village saw shifts in land ownership, with the Fitzwilliam family dominating until the 15th century, later succeeded by the influential Copley family. Notable landmarks include the Grade I listed St. Mary’s Church and The Old Rectory, which holds significance as the childhood home of Second World War flying ace Douglas Bader.
