UNC Community Garden Greenhouse: Ground Broken!


Szostak Design and Szostak Build have donated time and expertise toward the design and construction of a new greenhouse for the UNC Campus Community Garden. After pre-fabricating off-site, the structure is starting to come together quickly in the garden. In the coming weeks the greenhouse will be clad with translucent Polygal siding, and photovoltaic and solar thermal systems will be installed.

File_003Pre-fabricated structural bents went up quickly in our second day of on-site work.
