Research Greenhouses

As the leading authority on research greenhouses, Rough Brothers’ talented and experienced group of design and construction management professionals are poised to help insure the success of even the most intricate of research greenhouse projects. Representing a diverse range of design disciplines, Rough Brothers’ in-house personnel can help guide the research greenhouse design process through the many and varied design options and considerations. With the goal of a fully functional research greenhouse facility, Rough Brothers is able to lend its decades of experience to properly coordinate and integrate all the varied “plant” systems and “plant research” equipment components into the design to yield optimal research greenhouse performance. Whether for public research or private research, Rough Brothers is anxious to apply our project management skills and help navigate the pathway from research greenhouse conceptual design, to design development, to structural engineering, through manufacturing and onto construction of even the most sophisticated of research greenhouses. Greenhouses for research and teaching applications for schools, colleges, universities including private or governmental research facilities are all available through Rough Brothers.
