In addition to our greenhouse kits, we do offer custom greenhouse solutions for particular commercial and educational applications. We also offer consulting and design development services.
Custom Commercial Greenhouses
Ceres commercial custom grow greenhouse design are passive solar inspired structures designed for spaces over 3,000 sq. ft. These dimensions are customized to suit the site and operational layout. Our custom commercial greenhouses are constructed with steel framing, the strongest and longest-lasting framing material. Framing can span up to 80′ (depending on snow loads), allowing greater flexibility with layout options. Custom projects have longer design times and slightly higher build costs than our greenhouse kit options.
Custom Design Development Services
This package incorporates our established passive greenhouse principles with our in-house design expertise in order to establish a healthy growing environment for your plants. Custom Greenhouse Design Development is only available if you have an existing architect and/or structural engineer, or are an architect/engineer looking for greenhouse specific design support. It is currently only available for commercial or educational greenhouses.
