The Great Vertical Farming Debate: Adding Tiers vs Increasing Footprint

Thursday December 2nd
2:35 PM - 3:05 PM - Main Stage Expo Floor
Speakers: James Eaves, Stephen Doyle

When building or expanding an indoor farm, multiple factors impact whether it’s more profitable to add tiers to existing cultivation rooms or increase footprint. In this session, we use data from real projects to first breakout the cost of building an indoor farm. Then, we use that model to illustrate the myriad of factors that building designers should consider when asking the question “should we add more tiers or increase footprint.” We leave sufficient time for the audience to ask question and share their thoughts.
