Nursery Construction — Details are Everything
F. Allan Elliott
Nursery operations by nature require considerable developments of land and structures to grow, process, and ship products. These production facilities range from: can yards to greenhouses, warehouses, potting sheds, cold storage, loading docks, and office space. Although there are many commonalties, the facilities at each operation take on unique features specific to the needs of the nursery product and ideas of the nursery manager. Because these facilities are significant in size, cost, and longevity, it is critical that they are planned and constructed properly for long-term utilization.
Although each type of facility or structure is different, there are specific guidelines and procedures that are important to successful construction anywhere. The size and scope of the project will dictate the level to which these guidelines are followed.
