New sustainable greenhouse complex in Tacoma nearing completion

AHBL was the prime consultant.
AHBL is proud to be the prime consultant providing civil and structural engineering and land survey on the new greenhouse complex for Metro Parks Tacoma. In order to save money and become more sustainable, the new location will have a climate control system and use 25 percent less water than the previous facility. The project includes a pre-engineered greenhouse with 6,000 sf for growing plants and a 3,000 sf space for potting areas, storage, and transplanting. The warm frame and shade frame were relocated from the previous greenhouse site after they were evaluated and upgrades were recommended.

The project is expected to be complete in early 2018, with an open house scheduled for the spring. To read more about the project in the DJC, click here.
