Don’t give up, just do it: Building rooftop greenhouse in Ukraine during the wartime

A fully equipped rooftop greenhouse was recently commissioned by the Perspekta Group team in the Kyiv area, Ukraine. It took almost two months of building, in cold winter weather while missile attacks zoomed overhead, for the project to be done.

“Building greenhouses during wartime requires courage and determination,” says Maria Melnychenko, CEO of Perspekta Group. “It means taking risks and investing time and resources into a project that may face numerous obstacles and challenges. Nevertheless, despite the difficulties, our projects help to foster a greater sense of togetherness during challenging times and are a beacon for a better tomorrow. That’s what matters most.”

The greenhouse is equipped with such systems as LED lighting, a high-pressure misting system, an energy-saving screening system, irrigation, and heating which allow control of the climate and can grow crops all year round. The combination of hydroponic vertical towers and raised beds with different growing substrates allow flexibility in the types of crops and methods to grow.

Goals and benefits of rooftop greenhouse reached:

  1. Space efficiency: A rooftop greenhouse maximizes the use of available space.
  2. Year-round growing: Rooftop greenhouses provide an ideal environment for growing plants. This allows for a constant supply of fresh produce.
  3. Increased food security: With a rooftop greenhouse, building owners can grow their own fresh produce, reducing their reliance on imported produce. This is particularly important in Ukraine, with limited access to fresh and healthy food options.

“We are already working on the next project to be built on the rooftop, also fully equipped for year-round growing. Fingers crossed, the peaceful time will come soon. We do believe a rooftop greenhouse will be the trend all over the country when peace is there,” says Maria Melnychenko.

Perspekta Group is the leading greenhouse builder in Ukraine. The company has earned recognition for undertaking large, complex projects, fostering innovation, embracing traditional and emerging technologies, and making a difference for their clients. Simultaneously, the residential division of Perspekta has provided functional beautification to many of the nation’s most desirable estates.
