Forest Park Greenhouses - Queens, NY



- General Contractor
- 3 Aluminum Greenhouses
- Specialized Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing Systems
 

 

 

The project includes the demolition, removal and replacement of three greenhouse superstructures. The new low-maintenance aluminum Greenhouse structures with 16mm UV resistant single glass panes are installed on existing concrete foundations which will be reconstructed to finished quality. Specialized shading and environmental control systems, heating systems, plumbing and electrical systems are vital to the life and maintenance of the structure and the living plants inside.

Triton will provide framing and interior improvements, site improvements, as well as the preservation of concrete foundation walls and utility systems to tie all the greenhouses together within the overall Forest Park Greenhouse Facility.

The Park Agency uses the greenhouses, built in 1910, to grow trees and plants for many other city parks.
