Ceres Greenhouse Solutions Offers Preliminary Design for Commercial Greenhouse Clients

Share Article

Ceres preliminary design helps growers understand the complete scope of their greenhouse project early on; saving them time and money.

Not only is this a way for Ceres to establish whether a client is ready to invest in their products and services, but it’s also a way for growers to be more involved and have more control over their project from the get go.

Ceres Greenhouse Solutions separates themselves from other greenhouse companies by offering their clients a full systems approach. They combine innovative and energy-efficient greenhouse design with data driven climate control technologies to develop a sustainable solution that saves on energy costs while increasing yields. Ceres doesn't just build greenhouses, they partner with different businesses to cohesively integrate mechanical and environmental control systems into their structural design. In order to make their design and build process smoother, Ceres offers potential clients the opportunity to invest in a preliminary design up front before their greenhouse solution is finalized.

Once a client pays for a preliminary design, they sit down with a greenhouse designer to go over important aspects of their project, such as site limitations, what they are growing, and their business goals. Ceres will then work with the client to define the following:

  • Recommended layout of the greenhouse and headhouse
  • Sealed versus vented greenhouses
  • Glazing type
  • Climate control systems (this will greatly depend on whether the greenhouse is sealed or vented)
  • Grow and fertigation systems
  • Controller design and layout
  • Information on custom light deprivation systems
  • Water treatment and reclamation methods
  • Design elements that help with biosecurity
  • Full head house layout and design - processing, curing, trimming, etc.
  • Required permitting support

Throughout the preliminary design, Ceres will explain key design decisions, recommend optimal equipment and systems, and provide estimated payback periods and energy savings.

The preliminary design helps clients make important decisions early on in the design process before they commit to material and construction costs. It provides growers with an entire project scope so they know what to expect at every step of the way. This saves the client time and money down the road. Not only is this a way for Ceres to establish whether a potential client is ready to invest in their products and services, but it’s also a way for growers to be more involved and have more control over their project from the get go.
