Commercial Aquaponics Custom Farm Design Package
Our “basic” package is $4,995 and covers an open-ended custom farm design process that gives you a greenhouse layout, aquaponics system plans for inside the greenhouse(s) with aquaponics equipment and plumbing materials lists, and a farm site design that does what you need it to do and conforms to local building department and zoning requirements. What a mouthful!
This includes layout and conceptual design for greenhouse(s), which include fish tanks, troughs, storage, work areas, and sprouting table areas; harvesting, processing and packing building; walk-in reefer; office space; employee lunch/locker/break room, loading dock and materials storage; road access, parking lot, and turnaround areas. When finished, CAD drawing files are forwarded to your local architect or engineer of choice for them to turn it into final construction plans for your County.
Because the buildings that may be needed for a farm can vary hugely from one farm to the next, only “conceptual” building design is included (this means NOT plans you can build from; those are involved, more expensive, and almost always MUST be done by a local architect or engineer to be acceptable to your local Building Department).
The greenhouse plans in our “Commercial Greenhouse DIY Package” are included. The Commercial Greenhouse DIY Package is a set of CAD construction plans, documents, slideshows, manuals, and financial and certification information that completely covers commercial aquaponic growing in greenhouses, and is a $295 value on its own.
(Below) Our custom farm design service ensures that you get the right greenhouses and commercial aquaponics systems in the right place on your farm.
To begin our custom farm design process, we will send you a questionnaire via email, you will fill it out and return it, then we will call to go over the answers to the questions. Answers to these questions will help me get pointed in the right direction faster, and allow me to give you better options and advice. You will use this document as a scratch sheet to write ideas on; don’t worry about making it a “polished presentation”. Think about it awhile, then type answers into the document after each question, and email it back to me. If a question doesn’t apply to your project, just put “N/A” by it.
Don’t worry about drawing out sketches of your buildings or farm, or trying to figure out floor plans, or how things “go together”; my experience in that area is why you hired me. After you answer these questions, I will have a concept drawing back to you promptly that will reflect answers to all these questions. Our process is so easy, it’s kind of like going to a nice restaurant; you don’t need to be a 5-star chef. You just tell me if it “tastes good” or not, and I adjust accordingly to make it right. This is the easiest design process ever for beginners to be involved in; I did this professionally for 20 years before becoming involved in aquaponics.
We guarantee that this package will save you five times this much (at least!) if you are venturing into commercial aquaponics. We’re the experts, and we’re different! We’ve actually done it, and have the answers you need!
After purchasing this package, Tim or Susanne will contact you via email with our phone number, and to set up your phone schedule.
