CMW Horticulture and Certhon are to construct a new block of glass for Harlow-based UK Salads Ltd.
The 13,200 square metre development at UK Salads’ Hoe Lane site in the Lea Valley will enable the company to add home produced speciality tomatoes to their existing product range alongside peppers, cucumbers and aubergines.
The new turnkey greenhouse project will also include a boiler house, irrigation room and packing shed along with water storage tanks and heating system including boiler and buffer.
CMW commented, “This latest co-operative project between CMW Horticulture and Certhon will see Certhon taking care of the greenhouse and heating and CMW working alongside them to supply and install the thermal screens, crop gutters and air tube system.”
Work on the foundations began in early July and it is expected that the first crop will be planted next season.
