Simply Build It

That will be fine.
May I suggest, that you consider the water that will accumulate on the existing base, does is run away? Does it pond?
You do not want water running into the conservatory under the walls.
I suggest that you kill two birds, why not cover the base of the conservatory with four inch thick polystyrene and top that with a three inch concrete pad, this will raise the floor, and provide some insulation for your feet
