The purpose of this project is to assess the feasibility for farmers to upgrade from conventional farming methods to using sustainable, high-tech greenhouses. For all intensive purposes, the values presented in this paper are based off the assumption that a farmer already owns their land and can use this paper as a reference to see what it would look like if they wanted to make the upgrade to high-tech greenhouses. To assess the viability of this project my partner and I set out to complete all the preconstruction activities that a project team would need to complete for a potential owner looking to have a structure built. These various activities include 3D modeling, estimating, scheduling, and formulating a detailed business plan that demonstrates the return on investment of building a high-tech greenhouse. The combination of my 3D models, construction estimate, and construction schedule along with my partner’s business plan make it easy for any farmer that wants to make the transition to using high-tech greenhouses to see: what it would look like, how much it would cost, and what the expected long term profits would be.
