This facility is considered by many to be the most technologically advanced greenhouses in North America. It features approximately a 40,000 sq. ft. production greenhouse, approximately an 8,000 sq. ft. header house, and approximately a 12,000 sq. ft. research greenhouse. This facility is the first LEED Gold Certified Greenhouse in all of Canada. An existing green house and header house was first demolished which included asbestos abatement procedures. We then proceeded to construct three buildings, a production and demonstration house, header house and research greenhouse. We also performed extensive activities related to power line relocation and utility site work.
The research wing of the facility features containment laboratories which require strict control of construction procedures to build so that they meet their functional use. Our team worked closely with the client and design team in this regard. Delivered at the height of Alberta's boom, our team's can-do attitude contributed to the project's success. Both the client and design team agree that it was a demanding and challenging project, and both recognized that our team was extremely diligent in tending to those needs. We worked with them as partners from start to finish, especially with the research wing of the facility, which features containment laboratories that require strict control of construction procedures. The client had to ensure that the new build would meet their criteria for a functional laboratory.
