Oct. 31, 2013, Banff, Alta. — BC Greenhouse Builders, a leading North American custom greenhouse manufacturer of hobby, commercial and estate greenhouses will be manufacturing a second community greenhouse for the town of Banff, Alberta.

“We were approached by the Town of Banff in 2010 to build their first community greenhouse which has been a great success,” says company marketing director Angela Drake.

“The need for a greenhouse came out of a community survey in 2006 and they now have over 34 growing beds and a Banff Greenhouse Gardening Society that administers the program.”

The strength of their community and ability to pool resources is not only admirable, but inspiring. The Cross Country Traditional 20×40 Fivewall greenhouse was installed with the help of the Town of Banff and various community groups.

It was so successful that another greenhouse is in the works.

“They are currently in the planning process for a 20×30 fivewall polycarbonate greenhouse,” says Drake.

“The fivewall polycarbonate proved to be a perfect option for their growing concerns and climate.”

BC Greenhouse Builders is one of the few greenhouse manufacturers to offer fivewall polycarbonate as a choice for greenhouse glazing. Fivewall polycarbonate is lightweight, UV protected, and provides 62 per cent light transmission (which creates a great growing environment).

The thermal insulating factor is Relative Heat Gain 3.03 which is 80 per cent more insulating than single glass.
