This facility is considered one the most technologically advanced greenhouses in North America. It features a 40,000 sq. ft. production greenhouse, an 8,000 sq. ft. header house, and a 12,000 sq. ft. research greenhouse. This facility is the first LEED Gold Certified greenhouse in Canada. The project began with the demolition of the existing greenhouse and header house which required 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 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. 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. The client and Chandos worked as partners from start to finish, especially with the research wing of the facility, which features the containment laboratories. The client had to ensure that the new build would meet their criteria for a functional laboratory.
