Greenhouse Design is an international consultancy that makes constructive calculations for high-quality greenhouse systems for growing vegetables, fruit, trees and plants. We work with an experienced team of constructors for a large number of national and international greenhouse builders.
From our core business we are very well versed in calculating small and (very) large steel structures with Pelecon structural engineers. We have experience with the construction of distribution centers in the Netherlands and other European countries for Albert Heijn, Lidl, Bol.com and others. This is in line with the design of steel structures for greenhouse constructions where repetition and optimization are important. We also have experience with constructively calculating custom stacked concrete blocks with Betonblockdesign. With the start of Greenhouse Design, the calculation of greenhouse structures was also added on 1 July 2020.
Knowledge and skill
The constructors of Greenhouse Design, who have been educated at both higher vocational and university education levels, have extensive knowledge of greenhouse construction systems and materials. No question is too difficult. The more complicated the question, the better. Because we learn from that and our knowledge is continuously refined. Our collaboration with TNO and Bouwen met Staal also keeps us on our toes. This keeps us up to date with the latest developments in the research, design and execution phase of greenhouse constructions.
For the design of the greenhouses, we use the design program CASTA. For more information about this program and our role in developing it, click here.
Just a step further
The cooperation with our customers does not stop when we have answered a question; we want to make a difference for our customers. That is why our constructors have followed various additional training courses about earthquake-resistant construction, steel detailing and wind load.
At home and abroad
We not only use our knowledge to advise customers in the Netherlands. We are proud to advise on the most diverse greenhouse construction systems in Europe and the USA, the standards that apply here are well known to us. And by always listening carefully to the wishes and requirements, we can translate these into a suitable and efficient steel construction. The details are always the most important, which together with the design determine whether a design is feasible and affordable.
The experts at Greenhouse Design
Two specialized constructors work within Greenhouse Design. Erik Brok is responsible for calculations of greenhouse structures. Piet Peters designs innovative greenhouse structures. They work out the advice together with the Greenhouse Design team. Knowledge and experience are always shared with each other and used again in new designs. After all, we want to keep learning!
