Brabander Zantman almost ready for first plants

A relatively small project almost next door to our own office. Small, yet built according to the highest standards. Everything is there. The complete steel structure is powder coated in white, tempered glass vents, connected to an already existing greenhouse, irrigation, suspended grow gutters, new service building with office... You name it, and it's there. But this isn't just a small greenhouse. This is the new demonstration greenhouse for De Ruiter Seeds. A very sunny day gives us a good opportunity to take a look at the construction progress.

A wide and open staircase leads the visitors to the reception area

The greenhouse itself has been closed a while ago already, and the service building followed in its footsteps. Work is taking place on the interior, creating offices and other spaces. There is a clear view from the office into the greenhouse.

The water technical area is right next to the lobby

The greenhouse itself is split into two big departments. The tube rail system and the suspended gutters are already installed. The screening system is operational. In the front half of the greenhouse the lighting installation is being finished, and the gutters are already equipped with substrates. In this part of the greenhouse one of the screens has been closes partly in order to keep temperatures in check on this sunny day.

The second department is relatively barren compared to the first one

Just a couple week left, and the fist plants will be put inside the greenhouse. After this the offices will be completed, making sure that this project will be able to be used as Experience Center soon.

All pictures taken during the construction can be seen in the slideshow below.
