project at a glance

Syngenta Biotechnology's Growth Environment 1 is a 130,000 square foot growth environment, which includes a 41,000 square foot insulated glass, a greenhouse facility constructed above a 64,000 square foot cast-in-place full basement. The glass, manufactured and fabricated in the Netherlands, features configurations and coatings to allow maximum UVa and UVb wavelength exposure. Additionally, the greenhouse space will be illuminated by 1.4 million watts of high intensity growth lights extending the growing cycle of the crops. The main building also includes a 26,000 square foot head house, 12 growth chambers, other specialty growth environments, and two seed storage rooms. A 15,000 square foot common Central Utility Plant (CUP) will support Growth Environment 1 and has capacity for future phases.

The fast-track project took a highly collaborative approach, using Building Information Modeling and a design assist method for the major mechancal, electrical and plumbing subcontractors, which allowed for close coordination and optimization of space.
