GGS Structures Inc - Commercial Greenhouses Built to Last

  1. 1. Built to Last Since 1979.
  2. 2. History of GGS • GGS is part of a group of companies owned by the Harrison family which include GGS Construction, GGS Structures Inc, Niagrow Systems Limited, JGS Limited, Letrek Holdings, Trevor Construction Corp, Necaxa SA & MMM SA • Three of our companies specifically design greenhouse systems:
  3. 3. What We Do • GGS creates the ideal environment for your crops to flourish. • GGS can provide turnkey solutions for a seamless and worry-free greenhouse project • From structure, to heating, to environmental control, our professional team at GGS is there through every step of your project.
  4. 4. Greenhouse Vegetable Production • Compared to field-grown and low-technology protected crops, greenhouse vegetables lead the market in quality. • Greenhouse vegetable production trumps field production on not only quality, but variety, food safety, resource conservation, environmental impact, and sustainability. Source: Update on the North American Greenhouse Vegetable Industry, Farm Credit Canada, 2012
  5. 5. Greenhouse Vegetable Production • There are 125 countries in the world that produce greenhouse vegetables commercially • World Greenhouse Vegetable Production surpassed 1 million acres in 2012 • 2013 Total Estimated World Vegetable Production in Climate Controlled Greenhouses: 1,101,353 acres Source: International Greenhouse Vegetable Production Statistics, Cuesta Roble Consulting, 2013
  6. 6. Top Greenhouse Vegetables (North America) • #1 Tomatoes • #2 Cucumbers • #3 Bell Peppers
  7. 7. Greenhouse Components • • • • • • Structure/Shading Benches Heating System CO2 Dosing Irrigation System Climate Control System
  8. 8. Structure • The way the structure is designed plays a very important role in the environment of your crops • Quality growing environment with high light levels is essential • Ventilation is critical – there are many options for natural ventilation such as gutter vents • Condensation control – structure must be designed to minimize dripping • Ideal to have a strong, steel frame that is hot dipped galvanized to protect against corrosion from the elements
  9. 9. Freestanding Greenhouse • Ideally suited for professional growers who require unique environments for different crops • Provides economical growing space • Dramatically sloped arch design optimizes the useable space for growing bench crops as well as hanging baskets
  10. 10. Gutter Connected Poly Greenhouse • A versatile greenhouse designed for vegetable crops or floriculture • A single piece arch rolled into a gothic peak for superior condensation control • Gutter vents and other natural ventilation options for the most effective and efficient airflow possible • The most economical greenhouse for large growers
  11. 11. Widespan Greenhouse • Ideal for a header house, a retail area, or a growing greenhouse • Eliminates the center row of posts for more room • Twin peaks and a floating gutter for increasing the growing area without sacrificing ventilation
  12. 12. Curved Glass Greenhouse • Quality growing environment with high light levels • Continuous double ridge vents for up to 50% roof ventilation • Designed to virtually eliminate condensation drip • Can also be glazed with 8mm PCSS or 8mm acrylic
  13. 13. Low Profile Venlo Greenhouse • Quality growing environment with high light levels • Aluminum roof glazing bars hold the tempered glass panes in place • Continuous alternating vent windows • Strong, heavy hot dipped galvanized steel frame for superior protection against corrosion
  14. 14. Cold Frame • Constructed of high quality steel arches to provide long lasting protection from rust and corrosion • Easy to build on-site and add-on sections are available to extend their length • A cold frame is an excellent structure for the first time grower as well as large scale nursery production
  15. 15. High Tunnel • Extends the growing season - crops will benefit from both an earlier spring harvest, and a longer fall/winter season • Provides frost protection, better environmental control, and significant yield gains • Reduces moisture, which helps prevent botrytis, mildew, and other moisture related diseases
  16. 16. Shade System • Curtains provide simplicity, ease of installation, and are easily maintained • Add Blackout Screens for day light control and additional energy savings • Rolling Screens provide energy management and blackout for sidewalls
  17. 17. Benches • Benches can either be stationary or rolling • Can be fabricated in expanded metal covering, ebb and flood trays, or irrigation troughs • The bench assembly is designed for easy installation • Mitred corners prevent workers or customers from ripping clothing
  18. 18. Heating System • No matter the climate, greenhouses require heating to ensure optimum plant growth on a year-round basis • There are various ways to deliver heat to your plants: o Forcas Pipe Heating o In-Floor Heating o Under Bench Heating o Overhead Heating
  19. 19. Forcas Pipe • Thin wall steel tube ideally suited for heating systems in greenhouses • Brings heat directly to the crop where it is most effective • Lightweight and practical application • Narrow diameter 28/35mm pipe greatly reduces volume of water needed
  20. 20. In-Floor Heating • Directly heats the plants and soil • Flood floors use the concrete floor as a radiant surface to heat the plants and irrigation water • In-ground heating uses tubing that is buried directly in the growing beds
  21. 21. Under Bench Heating • Maintains uniform temperatures and reduces humidity around the plants • An under bench heating system can reduce fuel costs 10 percent or more • Distributing the heat under the benches warms the growing medium first before it rises to heat the air. For most crops, the medium temperature is more critical to good growth than the air temperature
  22. 22. Overhead Heating • Can provide the additional heat required for winter months • Compatible with hanging basket areas, snowmelt systems, and mono- or post-rail systems.
  23. 23. CO2 Dosing • Carbon dioxide is essential for the growth of plants • Central dosage of CO2-rich flue gasses from gas burning boilers has led to a considerable production increase in greenhouse horticulture • Flue gas condensers increase the efficiency of your boiler dramatically
  24. 24. Irrigation System • Keeping your plants hydrated with just the right amount of nutrients is essential • Many different types of watering systems available: o Drip Irrigation o Sub Irrigation o Misting Systems o Sprinkler Systems o Hand Watering Systems
  25. 25. Climate Control System • Computerized automation ensures that you can control your greenhouse climate • Computer systems can automatically control venting, air circulation, heating, irrigation, and more
  26. 26. Lighting • Depending on the geographical location and time of year, supplemental lighting is crucial to ensuring the maximum growth of your crops • Supplemental lighting ensures that you can be flexible on what crops are grown, regardless of what day-length or light intensity is required
  27. 27. Why Choose GGS? • Quality materials used for every component of the greenhouse • CSA-A660 steel quality certification • Easy, hassle free construction • Built to last and dependable greenhouse systems • Projects delivered on time and within budget • Focus on building an ideal system for your crops that will maximize return on investment • Superior customer service through every stage of your project & satisfaction guaranteed • To get started on your greenhouse project, navigate to www.ggs-greenhouse.com
