The Worries of Poor-Quality Used Glasshouses are a Thing of the Past
In the wake of the pandemic and with restrictions on the supply chain, many growers are feeling a newfound need to expand their operation catering to a greater demand for local produce.
With the need for quick lead times and cheaper building costs, a new glasshouse structure is not always the answer. But, for these growers looking towards a speedy installation of a standard Venlo structure, a 2nd hand glasshouse may be the solution.
Often modern glasshouse structures become available as nurseries re-locate to new areas of Holland and Europe to expand their operation, dismantling the old house and selling the parts back to glasshouse suppliers.
Each individual part is quality controlled to the Dutch ‘NEN’ standard, with even the glass being cleaned to almost new condition.
The storing of each component allows Bridge Greenhouses the ability to design a bespoke structure in the same way they would a new system. Used glasshouses can be designed to meet size, post height and gutter type requirements for most growers..
Once designs are approved the materials are delivered to site and Bridge’s construction process is identical to that of a new glasshouse structure allowing for equal amounts of care and attention.
Used glasshouses can also be offered as a turnkey service, with the ability to include used motors and other smaller components, or the option to retrofit newer parts such as screen systems, electrical controls and lighting to the used structure.
