US: From an abandoned swimming pool to a high tech hydroponic operation
The project was carried out by Miron Construction Co and the greenhouse technology was supplied by Canadian greenhouse manufacturer Paul Boers.
The time lapse video shows exactly how the project was carried out from the start. The engineers designed a greenhouse that could be exactly integrated over the existing situation. The former swimming pool was transformed into a strong foundation for the greenhouse and hydroponic pond. Truckloads with sand and concrete were needed to fill it up.
The hydroponics greenhouse will become the platform for veterans in need in the community of Appleton, to gain critical job training and transitional employment through Riverview Gardens' transformative job-training program, ServiceWorks.
