Concrete Pad & Single Brick Course – Scroll down for full details:
150mm compact hardcore: DPM: 100mm concrete: Single course of semi-engineering bricks
Please allow 50mm additional concrete in addition to the size of your garage.
Your groundwork plan is issued when your order is placed and your final design is confirmed.
We allow a 5mm tolerance for the brick course – please use a laser level when setting the bricks.
In most cases the base is too large to dig by hand, hence a local contractor will be required to do the groundwork for you.
You start by digging out the ground down to a depth of 10 inches, with any spoil either removed by skip off site, or dispersed somewhere else on site.
Secondly the land / mains drains will be put in place, and soak aways will be constructed. The soak away will be a deep pit, about 1m x 1m x 2m deep and filled with gravel, with the drainage piped into the top of it. This is mainly to take the rainwater from the guttering.
Once the drains are prepared, the hardcore is put in to a depth of 150mm and compacted down. Once compacted, the shuttering around the edge is put in place.
The concrete is to a depth of 100mm, and should be a c35 mix, or a mix with fibres. For example a 6m x 6m square base will need 6m x 6m x 0.1m = 3.6 square metres of concrete. A tamped finish is sufficient, although a floated finish will be smoother. Timescale for this should be a single day.
Once the concrete has been laid for a couple of days the brick course can be fitted. This should take about half a day for the 6m x 6m base.
Concrete Pad or Paving Slab Base
150mm compact hardcore: DPM: 100mm concrete: or
150mm compact hardcore: 50mm paving slabs on cement sub base
Garden rooms and offices require a flat & level pad of either concrete or paving slabs.
The base will need to be at least the same size as the building you are looking to have, and you
will require 400mm clearance to objects such as fences, trees or other buildings.
We can work within a 10mm tolerance (which a competent builder can easily achieve).
We require a minimum of side access of a minimum width of 600mm and a height of 1950mm to allow us to install your building. Should you be concerned about access in to your garden please email us pictures of the access and we will be able to confirm whether it is suitable.
For the majority of our buildings, they are delivered on a 7.5 tonne lorry. This is the typical size of a concrete mixer lorry and will take up the equivalent space of 2 standard vehicles. We will require parking for our vehicle as close as possible to your property.
The Garden Rooms and Offices are fully insulated for year round use. They are designed to be warm in the winter and cool in the summer, however the location in your garden will have an impact on how warm / cool the building is.
North faced gardens will have buildings that are naturally cooler throughout the year, whilst south facing garden will be naturally warmer throughout the year.
A building in the shade or in a north faced garden, will need a small heater during the winter months, but will remain cosy when the building is up to temperature.
A building in direct sunlight or in a south facing garden will benefit from more ventilation and blinds between the glass to keep the building cooler.
The price list has been created to give a price for our most common sizes. If you require a different size to fit in a space available, please contact us to get an accurate price.
Because each building is individually created for you, a guide for the price would be the closest to the size that you are looking to have. Please do get in touch on 01926 815757 and talk to us about your project.
Garden Rooms are usually constructed within 1-2 days (up to 6.2m x 3.6m sizes) depending on the final specifications.
Garages up to 6.1m x 6.1m are usually constructed within 1 day. Larger buildings will often take 2 days on site.
Commercial Buildings usually take 1 week on site – depending on the final specification.
We regularly have customers that have buildings re-roofed at 15 and twenty years old – who are quite confident that their buildings will last double that time if they get general maintenance and care.
This building was taken by a customer and we have worked out that it was 18 years old, and was still original. The customer has painted the building regularly with Protek Woodstain.
This garden office is 12 years old and has been regularly treated with Dark Oak wood protector. It features timber doors and windows, along with brown felt tiles.
The lead time for a building is usually 10 – 12 weeks, however this can be longer during peak periods.
You are welcome to book in advance to secure a delivery slot, and still make adjustments to the design up to the point that the base has been constructed.
(Please note that items that have been specifically order for you will still need to be paid for)
Tanalised timber is not waterproof, so it is still subject to the natural expansion and contraction as the moisture content in the surrounding atmosphere changes. It advised that a water repellent (clear or colour) treatment is applied to not only maintain the appearance of the building but also to help to exclude moisture being absorbed by the timber surfaces.
We can provide RWA45 Rockwool acoustic insulation in place of the standard insulation and the option to upgrade to triple-glazed doors and windows.
RB Studios in Birmingham have utilised 5 of our garden offices as music studios. These studios have been used by many famous Artists and Bands, and are Birmingham’s longest established recording and rehearsal studios.
Warwick Garden Rooms and Offices need a solid paving slab or concrete base to support the weight of the building over the complete area of the floor. This is known as a ground supported floor with the concrete pad classed as a floating pad which allows the natural movement of the ground conditions to change without compromising on the base.
Whilst we have tried suspended floors on small concrete pillars, we found them to have more movement and bounce, as timbers bridging the gap between supporting pillars tend to bend over time with gravity and the weight within in the building. Increasing the thickness of the floor bearers to reduce bounce will reduce the height of the walls for buildings needing to be 2.5m high (planning). Customers have also experienced a place for rodents to hide under the building.
Ground supporting bases require the soil to be dug out and filled with compact hardcore before filling with concrete / slabs, each base needs to be priced individually and done by a local builder due to the logistics of organising a skip, hardcore, concrete and access.
There are two ways to get internet to the new Garden Office.
Option 1 is to have a CAT 5 cable coming from a router in your house, down the garden and into the back of the building.
We can supply a back box specifically for a CAT 5 cable. Usually the cable is better to be unbroken – hence we don’t internally wire with a CAT 5 cable to pug into
Option 2 is to purchase a WiFi extender kit or a mobile data dongle.
Garden Rooms and Offices include the first fix wiring, along with the consumer unit, lighting and the faceplates.
All wiring is installed within the cavity and is ready for an electrician to connect the tail ends of the wiring at the consumer unit and the faceplates.
The electrician will need to provide and install a power feed from your house / garage to the new building – usually a 6mm armoured cable is used. The wiring provided is 1.5mm cables for lighting on a 6 Amp fused circuit, and 2.5mm cables with a 32 Amp breaker for the sockets – on a ring main.
There is space for a 3rd breaker if it is required for another feed.
It usually takes half a day for the internal connections, plus the time required for the electrician to install the cable that you require.
Our electrician can offer customers in Warwickshire and Worcestershire with installation and certification independently – please contact him directly (Andy Punnett) via his website www.aspelectrics.co.uk If you live in Berkshire or Hampshire, please contact Ben Thorp on 07917 131984
We have suppliers for u-PVC and aluminium windows, all of which can be fitted into any of our buildings.
u-PVC Windows are the standard option for Garden Rooms and Offices due to their maintenance free properties. Available in a a choice of colours, but usually supplied in the popular Anthracite Grey or Black. The u-PVC windows can be fitted into any of our buildings and it is becoming increasingly more common to have them in garages and workrooms.
Aluminium is usually provided as bi-fold doors. Windows are available in Aluminium again available in a range of colours – with Anthracite grey being the most popular choice. You can select u-PVC as this also matches the Aluminium Bi-Fold doors.
Shiplap – 16mm x 125mm Scandinavian Redwood machined to our unique profile, with an extra long rebate to allow for natural movement of timber. It is pressure treated to a light green colour to protect against rot & decay for 15 years and is the ideal choice for customers who like a smooth finish and little maintenance.
Feather Edge – 25mm x 150mm home grown spruce with a sawn finish, that provides a much thicker and heavier look to the shiplap. Again it is pressure treated in a light green colour, and is the ideal cladding for customers looking for a traditional looking building that is full of character. The size and weight of the feather edge along with the manufacturing processes mean that this board is a more expensive option over the shiplap cladding.
Cedar – 12mm x 100mm Tongue & Groove cladding machined to create a modern looking finish. Each board is unique as this beautiful cladding naturally ranges from a dark hardwood to a light pine in colour thus creating a fantastic looking natural building. The hardwood properties of Cedar mean that it hardly expands or contracts during changes in weather, whilst it also has it’s own unique protection against rot, decay and insect infestation. Whilst the Cedar will fade in the sunlight, it is a must for customers looking for that wow factor on a garden room or garage, and it will continue to offer that feeling especially if protected against UV rays with Restol Oil.
Pitched roof buildings can have any of the roofing options that we provide, whereas the single slope buildings are only available with steel roofing sheets.
Green mineral felt is the standard finish on garages – this is a polyester based felt and is much thicker and stronger than normal shed roofing felt that you would buy from a DIY store. Average lifespan is 6-8 years.
Felt Tiles is standard on the pitched roof garden rooms and an option on the other buildings. They are created in a sheet format that has 4 tiles on each sheet – the above tile covers the lower sheet by 50% to provide a double layer of tiles. In addition to this we also cover the roof with breathable underfelt before the tiles are fitted – which creates a 3 layer roofing system with an average lifespan of 15 years.
Steel Roofing Sheets are covered with plastisol and available in a range of colours. It is fitted to the roof onto the breathable underfelt to create a 2 layer roof covering that is condensation free. When fitted to the Garden Offices the insulation in the roof ensures virtually no noise is heard during inclement weather. Average lifespan is 25 years for the steel sheeting.
Onduline Roofing is a standard roof finish for stables. It is felt and bitumen compressed into a corrugated format and can be nailed directly onto the purlins with or without boarding underneath. For the optimum life expectance of 15 years we would recommend boarding and underfelt as a base for the Onduline to sit onto. The Onduline can sit directly onto the purlins however this will reduce the average lifespan of the product.
Cedar Shingles offer an improved lifespan over Felt Tiles, along with added depth and character without the compromise of additional trusses needed to support the weight. They will start off as a natural brown colour but will quickly turn to a beautiful silver colour that is very popular in countryside locations. They are fitted onto underfelt and battens to create an average lifespan of 25 years.
Tapco Slate is a perfect solution for customers looking for a tiled roof look, but would like the building supplied & fitted by one company. Fitted onto boarding, underfelt & battens the Tapco slate is a man made lightweight roofing solution that appears as realistic as natural slates. Available in a range of colours, with a maximum roof pitch of 25 degrees, the average lifespan is 40 years for this roof finish.
Clay or Slate Tiles @ 30 degrees. Customers that require this finish will require a tiler to supply & fit the battens, membrane, tiles and soffits for this option. Warwick Buildings will obtain the trusses and install them at 600mm centres in readiness for the tiler to continue from that point. The two end trusses will be clad, however please note that there will not be any overhangs to the gable end on this option.
We require a minimum of 600mm around the building to be able to fit the cover strips and guttering on the outside of the building.
If you have less space available please contact us on 01926 815757, as we will discuss the options available on an individual basis – it may be that we can still accommodate your project.
Buildings close to a boundary will need to be 2.5m high. If you require a taller building without planning you will need to be more than 2m away from your boundary.
You will need to locate your building either to the side or to the back of the house – buildings in front of the house will need planning permission.
Please note that the customer is responsible for planning permission, and may need to contact the council for full clarification of their permitted development rights.
The weather, location and the sun can all have an effect on buildings, however throughout our 35 years we understand how our product works and how it stands up to the test of time.
Your maintainace schedule should be:
- To clean the gutters out to keep free from debris
- Adjust doors and windows that have expanded or contracted through weather conditions
- Remove debris from the roof
- Treat the outside of the building as required to maintain an attractive appearance. (This provides a waterproof coat to the timber and keeps the moisture content of the wood consistent – which in turn improves the stability of the timber, and reduces the expansion & contraction of the timber)
Our guarantee is in respect of design and maufacturing faults, corrosion and rot for 10 years from the date of installation.
Great company – would certainly recommend.
We've had two buildings from Warwick. First one over twenty years ago which we insulated and finished off ourselves. It's been brilliant so we had no hesitation to go back when we needed a second one. This time we chose a contemporary design which was fully kitted out, saving us time, money and arguments. Same lad that did the first one is still working there and takes care with the finishing touches. Great company - would certainly recommend.

We’re very happy with the quality.
I have previously purchased THREE double garages from Warwick Buildings, the first over twenty years ago is still standing, although unsurprisingly, we re-roofed it. Currently I'm awaiting a quote for a workshop - but the similar one they delivered and erected two years ago is still like new, no issues at all. We're very happy with the quality.
We love our new garden office
Thanks for an outstanding buying experience. From the start, Warwick Buildings have been fantastic. The delivery & build team were great! We love our new garden office.
Visited here to get an idea of the possibilities for a new garden office workshop we are looking to have built. They have examples of the various buildings that appear on the website, makes it a lot easier to picture the options, and to get real idea of scale. The gentlemen we spoke to was very helpful. Now just need to put our design on paper.
Fantastic service from start to finish - a job well done. Thanks!
Work ethic was magnificent
5 stars. Is there anything else you would like to say? YES - where did you get your quality staff from? Work ethic was magnificent.
Good morning David, As you know Miles dropped over yesterday morning and sorted out the problem with the bifold doors on my new office. Thank you very much for responding so promptly and resolving the problem. Great service. Regards, Louise P
It has enhanced our garden, the structure is very sound and looks great. Highly recommended.
I was looking for an alternative to a standard concrete garage and found Warwick via google. I paid them a visit and was impressed with the standard of the wooden buildings they manufacture, so placed an order. Garage is now complete and I am very very pleased, it has enhanced our garden, the structure is very sound and looks great. Highly recommended.
Credit to the company
The guys who installed were professional, fished in good time, left the garden tidy - credit to the company
Superb. I've just had a garage supplied and installed by Warwick, and have been very impressed with both the building itself and their customer service and support. The building was supplied and fitted ahead of schedule, which was nice. After initial installation there were a couple of minor snags, which Warwick addressed and put right first thing the next day. You can't ask for more than that. I would wholeheartedly recommend Warwick based on both the quality of their product and their customer service.
Fantastic service from a very reputable company.
Fantastic service from a very reputable company. I would strongly recommend them to anyone looking for a garden office.
Really helpful staff with a can do approach.
Really helpful staff with a can do approach and a great show site that shows the quality of the products. The visit firmed up ideas for a new stable block and within budget.
Everything was exactly as promised - thank you!
Value for money
I chose Warwick because they adapted my office to suit me, and they would always update any changes in writing. OK the lead time was a bit longer than I'd anticipated, but that meant they were busy, so it gave me confidence that my money was safe. The team arrived and built it in next to no time, and they even cleared up after themselves... I'd have no hesitation in recommending them
Excellent & prompt response to queries
Wonderful product, exactly what we wanted. Exemplary service at every stage. Excellent and prompt response to queries... Jake particularly awesome!
Professional staff and a stunning product.
Fantastic company. Did exactly what they said they would. Professional staff and a stunning product.
5 stars again - need I say more
They were excellent
Just to commend your onsite team - they were excellent
Well made and sturdy, never damp or wet inside, been well worth the money.
I've had one of these garages for around 12 years and can't fault it, well made and sturdy, never damp or wet inside, been well worth the money.
I found them great and the building I bought is quality
Well I'm just going to sell my 4 year old "traditional office" supplied by them as I don't use it much and came across these reviews. My office is (as stated) four years old. Still 100% water tight everything is perfect despite being under a tree all the time. I found them great and the building I bought is quality....
So professional & efficient
Positive experience from first call to your office requesting brochure, to erection of office on site. The on site team were amazing - so professional and efficient.
Excellent organisation, great products
Excellent organisation, great products, very "can-do" staff and outstanding customer service. Highly recommended.
Brilliant Company, have dealt with them on more than one occasion, outstanding staff and service, would certainly recommend
Everything I had hoped for.
I was unable to visit the show site and so was a little concerned as to what the build quality would be like. I needn’t have worried as when the product was delivered it was everything I had hoped for.
Very pleased, professional efficient service from start to finish.
Very pleased, professional efficient service from start to finish. Garage looks good and hope it stands the test of time.
Many thanks to you and the installation team we are very pleased with our buildings that have been constructed over the past couple of days. They compliment the 2 garages and a pool shed which have been built on the property since 2004
Loving the office
Loving the office. Quality product, thank you
