Our Partnerships

Commercial Projects

Since our inception in 1952 as manufacturers of bespoke glasshouses, preserving heritage and upholding British manufacturing standards has remained paramount.

Our greenhouses emulate the aesthetic of timber structures and adhere to stringent planning requirements. Through the integration of modern materials and technology, we deliver stunning greenhouses that demand minimal maintenance.

Having had the privilege of designing and installing exquisite greenhouses for numerous public gardens and commercial venues, we contribute to crafting memorable experiences.

Growing and Entertaining Spaces

We’ve contributed to numerous public garden projects, bringing fresh visions to life.

One notable example is the expansive greenhouse at THE PIG on the Beach, nestled within a picturesque kitchen garden. In close collaboration with the team, we carefully positioned the greenhouse in a natural setting to cultivate crops for the home-grown menu, offering guests an enchanting space to explore during their stay.

Unique Greenhouses

Certain projects push the boundaries of convention…

We frequently encounter intricate designs that challenge conventional norms, necessitating innovative solutions and meticulous attention to detail.

One such project is the Logan Botanic Greenhouse, which pioneers sustainability by being the UK’s first public greenhouse heated entirely by green energy. Divided into four zones, it facilitates varying temperatures tailored to different planting themes.

Beyond unconventional functionalities, the shape and size of certain projects demand meticulous preparation. Explore our Hexagonal Greenhouse case study to witness how we crafted a stunning centerpiece for an ornamental kitchen garden.

“We needed to restore what was marvellous about the Gardens and the glasshouse, with reference to what went before but with the benefits of modern thinking and technology. Alitex have done exactly that with the glasshouse structure.”

“I have been so impressed with the heating system in our Alitex. Exactly a week ago I sowed 250 pots of Basil seedlings and a week later they have all germinated and will be moving into our tomato house next week.”
