“Initially, we had planned for 16′ ceilings on the conservatories. But because of the wind factor and loss of intimacy , we scaled down the height of the conservatories. Conservatory Craftsmen helped us to modify the plans and brought the project in within budget. They were the easiest contractors to work with in the entire project.”
Mary Ellen Slattery of Peterson Companies
The Back Story
When Fireman Hospitality Group decided to open a new Bond 45 restaurant in National Harbor, Maryland, overlooking the marina on the banks of the Potomac River, their challenge was to take advantage of the view on the terrace all year long, not just the few months of seasonal weather. The solution: a conservatory, bringing the feeling and light of the outdoors into a room protected from the weather. However, one large conservatory on the long terrace would not give the intimacy desired, so the group elected to build four separate green hip‐roofed conservatories, all overlooking the harbor.
