Construction of a Greenhouse at The Bellairs Research Institute

Construction of a Greenhouse at The Bellairs Research Institute

A project spanning 2 years to build a greenhouse designed for the Caribbean climate at the Bellairs Research Institute, a McGill University teaching and research facility in the tropics.

The project was lead by Lucas McCartney, a PhD candidate at McGill University, and made possible by funding from the McGill Office of Sustainability, through the Sustainability Projects Fund (SPF).

Many thanks to BITS students 2015 and 2016 and staff from the Bellairs Research Institute.

  1. Hi Lucas! I am an architecture student in Argentina. I'm currently doing a project that wraps a house inside a greenhouse. I still dont have much information about their efficiency in the climate I am in. If possible, I would like to ask you some questions about them! Thank you!!

  2. When I watch this video clips I learned many things thank you everyone. If you saw us Afterfinish everything outside temperature and inside temperature.I think very big help for us thank you again

  3. Hi Lucas.

    it's effectiveness will depend on RH..

    so which means if i'm looking for lowering humidity in the greenhouse, this won't be the solution, right?
    I'm from Thailand. tropical area where has lots of rain.

    Thanks to you guys for the hard work and for the information

  4. I'm interested in this system to work with inTrinidad and Tobago. On a fair large scale in combination with NFT hydroponics. Seems like it should work. Did you visit the greenhouses at PCS Nitrogen? Are those the ones you referred to?
