Highly professional greenhouse project management

We understand the importance of managing your commercial greenhouse projects in the right way. We’ve developed our greenhouse project model along the US Project Management Institute (PMI) guidelines and used our experience to apply them specifically to the greenhouse project cycle.

We then use the right digital tools like Microsoft Project to track your greenhouse project on a daily basis. It helps us keep our customers up to date with the process and different milestones.

Project management

Technical expertise in house

There are many moving parts to a turnkey greenhouse project. One of our strengths at Netafim Greenhouse is our high level of expertise in-house, including agronomists, construction engineers, hydraulic engineers and heating and cooling engineers.

Having everyone as part of the same organization allows for better planning, more coherent project management and a guarantee of professionalism throughout the greenhouse project process.

Technical expertise in house

Your local team on the ground

We have over 5,000 employees working permanently in over 110 countries – in contrast to many greenhouse providers who rely on technicians flying in and flying out. If you ever need support our local team are there on the ground, and you won’t have to worry about travel delays or flight limitations.

A project management process that works

Every turnkey greenhouse project is unique. But the foundation of each Netafim greenhouse solution is a tried and trusted greenhouse project model:

1. DESIGN AND FEASIBILITY

1. DESIGN AND FEASIBILITY

This first thing we do is a thorough evaluation of your greenhouse project’s feasibility to find the right greenhouse solution. We assess climate hazards, soil, location and the most suitable crops to grow. We can also develop a full economic analysis, including total costs, financial forecasts and projected ROI.

  • Greenhouse project feasibility study
  • Climate and crop assessment
  • Business planning
  • Financial planning
  • Preliminary technical design
2. SOLUTION PLANNING AND DETAILED DESIGN

2. SOLUTION PLANNING AND DETAILED DESIGN

The next step in your greenhouse project is to design the master plan for your greenhouse solution, including structures and configurations, heating systems, cooling systems, irrigation & fertigation systems, cultivation techniques – each and every element inside the greenhouse that will eventually support your business plan.

  • Civil works, engineering and planning
  • Structure design
  • Screening
  • Heating and cooling design
  • Growing systems
  • Water system and Irrigation design
  • Climate and irrigation control
  • Greenhouse project scheduling
3. EXECUTION AND BUILD

3. EXECUTION AND BUILD

Once the master plan is perfected, it’s time to put your greenhouse solution into action. Our greenhouse project managers oversee every activity, starting from groundworks and water sourcing to civil engineering works and building, all the way to formal commissioning and handover procedures.

  • Project scheduling and tracking
  • Logistics and shipping
  • Machinery-use on-site supervision
  • Managing subcontractors and other stakeholders
4. TRAINING AND AFTER SALE SUPPORT

4. TRAINING AND AFTER SALE SUPPORT

Before handover we run a full training session on all systems. We also offer personalized, ongoing technical and agronomic support to make sure you see your desired returns long after the greenhouse project is implemented.

  • Handover programs
  • In-field and in-class training
  • Training tools and organizational implementation
  • Agronomic, technical and operational support plans

Questions our greenhouse project managers are often asked

  • What project management models do you provide?

    We match our project management model to your specific requirements. We can operate a supply & supervision model, or an EPC/turnkey model. Both can include your master plan, design, equipment supply, civil works and construction.

  • Do you provide operation and management services (O&M)?

    Yes. If you require O&M services, we can provide after-sale local agronomic support and farm management for one growing season, or more.

  • Do you manage all contractors?

    Yes. As a company the size of Netafim we have most of the technical expertise you need in-house. However, we also have the ability to bring in the best in the world, if a specialist contractor is required. Whoever we bring in, we manage, so the only team you have to interface with is Netafim.

  • Do you also help with financing?

    Yes, we are able to help you organise a financing solution for your commercial greenhouse project. With our subsidiaries in over 33 countries, we’re often able to provide more varied financing options than others in the greenhouse industry. This could even include financing solutions that don’t require you to start paying instalments until your greenhouse is up and running. Read more on our greenhouse financing
