Why you should use our firm

Here are some reasons why you should consider using GShort.com, LLC to design your greenhouse project.


 Unlike some design teams, we are independent of the manufacturers and work directly for our clients.   This enables us to specify the broadest line  of products, producing the most competitive bids.

Teamwork based approach

We routinely team up with a small group of greenhouse engineers on projects.  This enables us to share experience and maximize our talents.  On many projects we are working with architects, other engineers, greenhouse curators, maintenance staff growers, professors and administrators.  We have experience working remotely and on site.  We have experience working as part of a project teams lead by and architectural firms.

Licensed and Insured Professional Engineers

We are licensed professional engineers trained in greenhouse structures and systems.  We carry both general liability insurance and commercial auto.  But the most important insurance we carry is professional liability insurance of 1M per claim/2M maximum per year.   If you are an architect, you aren't taking on any increased liability on the greenhouse design.

Computer Aided Design

CAD isn't just a drawing tool for us.  We design from the start with the current versions of AutoCad.  We have a large supply of blocks and standard prints of greenhouse systems from our past work, enababling us to quickly design your project.

Systems based design

To us a greenhouse isn't just a sun room.  It has a responsibility to create growing environments optimized for the plants.  We make sure that the systems are designed to work together and are controlled by a well designed greenhouse grade control system/

Over 20 years of Experience with many different greenhouse systems

We've been working with greenhouses for over 20 years.  In that time, we've worked on commercial, institutional, research, conservatories, retail and hobby greenhouses.  We've worked with Aquaponics, Hydroponics, Media based systems, and soil based growing systems.

Fair and Tested Specifications

Our specifications are designed to be fair to all of the vendors capable of producing a high quality greenhouse.  Our specifications have been honed by multiple projects.

Real world costing data

From our years of experience, and our deep ties to the greenhouse industry, we are able to provide accurate costing of your greenhouse structure and systems.
