PASSIVE SOLAR DESIGN

Ceres uses passive solar design principles, creating a tailored approach for your structure that works with your local climate and resources. Thoughtful greenhouse design allows for sun-harvesting, providing the predominant energy source not only for plant growth but also for the structure’s energy needs. Whether an off-grid commercial greenhouse or an attached residential solar greenhouse, our full-service design and engineering services can take your project from conception to completion.
Our Design includes the highest quality building materials.

Building Information Modeling (BIM)

We use this 3D modeling process for accurate and efficient design and construction.

Features of BIM:

  • Money Savings. Greater detail, accuracy, and increased compatibility with other software.
  • Accuracy. Clash detection determines when features of the design do not fit together.
  • Coordination. 3D mapping enables easier transfer of data across mechanical, electrical, architectural, and plumbing plans.
  • Forecasting. Energy modeling can be used to predict performance of systems.
  • Better Design Process. Better forecasting tools allow for better predictions about the performance of systems and structures.
