Create Versatile Growing Facilities for Unique Learning Experiences

If you’re building or renovating a greenhouse at your high school, university, or research institution, how do you provide versatile facilities to maximize learning?

Or, if you’re entrusted with a historic conservatory or public garden, how do you preserve your community’s legacy while creating enjoyable visitor experiences?

It’s time to demand thinking.

Updating and Enhancing Public Gardens

Botanical gardens and conservatories are community treasures. Public and private institutions continue to invest in the maintenance and restoration of their historic structures and improve the experience and enjoyment for the people who visit. Who can you call to gain access to all the design, build, maintenance, and restoration resources you need to:

  • Preserve landmark community facilities while expanding their capabilities to ensure their usefulness for years to come?
  • Lead the planning, construction, and commissioning of an institutional greenhouse project for your first time?
  • Eliminate the delays, cost overruns and safety issues that would otherwise keep you up at night?

Meeting Unique Needs for Schools, Universities and Research Institutions

Educators and researchers need modern greenhouses and equipment so they can advance the understanding of cultivation as well as plant genetics and cultivars to enhance our lifestyles and protect endangered species.

There are many different ways to create the ideal growing environment, visitor experience, or a flexible infrastructure to support educational and research ambitions.
