The devil is in the details when it comes to planning new greenhouses, or refurbishing older ones and other horticulture facilities: it is often necessary to deal with critical construction or technical issues, whereas in other cases specific requirements set down by the building contractor – or local building authorities – must be fulfilled. And these issues can crop up unexpectedly at any time – costing you both time and money.
We begin by asking the right questions, and then we draw up detailed plans, all serving to keep potential problems at a minimum. This may sometimes be inconvenient, but it saves our clients a great deal of trouble by ensuring a stable cost structure and avoiding deadline bottlenecks.
Every greenhouse is different. Large-scale production facilities can hardly be compared to smaller research greenhouses consisting of several small cubicles. Greenhouses used for training purposes in teaching and research facilities or in universities, or for special purposes in institutions for the disabled or in prisons must meet extremely diverse requirements.
Yet in all greenhouse projects, the demands for maximal light transparency, optimal air volume and efficient heat insulation are identical from the foundations to the roof. Regardless of the construction form or size of the greenhouse, what all construction projects should have in common is a set of clear-defined requirements, a creative and professional approach to planning, as well as construction supervision to ensure suitable solutions – and ultimately, satisfied customers.
Technical specifications for greenhouses are – in addition to an optimal greenhouse shell designed specifically for the requirements – an essential component for efficient horticultural production as well as in research and teaching institutes.
