Commercial Greenhouse North Slope

Product Description:

The North Slope is designed to shed snow and allow maximum light into the greenhouse for Northern climates.  We have found that its generous Gothic peak makes it easy to cool with natural ventilation so that it excels in mild to hot climates as well.  The North Slope is a commercial grade quonset for Agricultural use / high tunnel greenhouse.  The North Slope's Gothic arch design has no flat spots on the roof making it stronger and drip less than most.

Client's Testimonial

This greenhouse is only the beginning of an ongoing relationship with ATI and AgCon that could last for many years. "The marketplace for greenhouses is really taking off, so the game plan is for us to work more with ATI on additional structures after we complete this one," Sawyer said. "We want to pursue this as much as we possibly can, because this technology is becoming so sophisticated and it's only going to grow from there. Before I was working here, I was building clean rooms for 25 years for electronic and pharmaceutical companies, and many of their synergies are very similar. When you take things such as air changes and temperature envelopes into account, both industries are very precise and the end results are indicative of that."
