Create the perfect garden room

The Consultancy has produced its first ever online, 3D product configurator for garden rooms.

Created for Composite Garden Buildings, it has delivered what the company’s MD Jason Wilder has called “the best garden room designer on the market, with amazing graphics and great functionality”.

Richie Thornton, director at The Consultancy, said: “Our brief was to create an interactive 3D product configurator to sit on the Composite Garden Buildings’ existing website, which would allow homeowners to create their own perfect garden room and then make an enquiry based on that design.

“It had to work on all modern devices and current web browsers and, as with all our online designers, had to be intuitive enough for any homeowner to use and engaging enough to capture meaningful leads.”

The end result for Composite Garden Buildings enables homeowners to select the dimensions of their ideal garden room and then add the windows and doors they need, before selecting a colour for each of their chosen elements. They can also add porch canopies and different roof variations to suit their plans and, once their design is complete, review and rotate their finished building through 360° to see exactly how it will look from all angles.

At this point, the homeowner can get a summary of their design sent to themselves via email and send it to the team at Composite Garden Buildings for them to review and produce a quote.

Having been acquired by Business Micros in February this year, The Consultancy is keen to show that it is business as usual when it comes to development work, but with a new, broader outlook and bigger ambitions.

Richie Thornton said: “What we’ve demonstrated for Composite Garden Buildings is that we can go beyond window and door designers and into more complex structures. We’re now targeting conservatory and orangery fabricators as well, where the benefits of homeowners being able to create and visualise their dream glazed extension are obvious.”
