A Working Greenhouse in Auburn, ME


by | Dec 2, 2021 | Construction

Sunspace Design is a flexible design-build firm capable of handling glass construction projects of virtually any size or scope for both residential and commercial purposes. Today we’re taking a closer look at the construction process leading to the grand opening of a gorgeous commercial, aluminum-framed greenhouse engineered and built for clients in Auburn, ME. The large working greenhouse space received high-performance insulated glass panes along the walls and polycarbonate panels in the roof. Ventilation systems were installed to ensure excellent thermal performance, and color details were chosen to match a corresponding garden center. View the build journal photo journey below to see our process first-hand.
