Architect Teams

Are you an Architect looking for a greenhouse design expert for a project? We can help you land that new client. We partner with many different architectural firms across the country on their proposals and projects. We are experienced in working with other team members including Structural, Electrical, Plumbing, and other design firms.

Often the greenhouse is only a small part of the project, but it can be a critical part of the overall functionality and form of the structure. On most projects, we handle the design of the greenhouse structure, as well as all of the MEP, engineered systems in the greenhouse. We typically rely on other MEP engineering team members for the services to the greenhouse and headhouse spaces.

 We work with the client from the start and have a very robust programming stage where we talk with the stakeholders about the usage and needs of the facility. This is a critical part of greenhouse design, as the systems need to come together to meet both the health and safety of the occupants as well as support the plant material and related programs. There are a wide variety of greenhouse designs, from high biosecurity air-conditioned compartments, to architecturally significant conservatory structures and everything in between. Determining the needs of the client, and communicating that during the design process is crucial to a successful project.

We produce custom BIM/CAD drawings and three-part specifications for the greenhouse structure and systems. These documents are designed around extensive knowledge of the greenhouse manufacturers and vendors to enable multiple bidders and efficient pricing of the project. We use our past experience to provide budgetary numbers for the project during the early stages of the design process.

We have experience with LEED projects and have been involved with multiple certified LEED Gold greenhouse designs.

We have 330 type resumes, project profiles, and other documentation required to quickly respond to Request for Proposals for both Design-Bid-Build and Design-Build projects. These are available upon request as we try to adapt them to closely match the project requirements.  Please contact us for more information.
