Work on the Plains of Abraham Greenhouses | Optimization to preserve a century-old vocation
Unlike the building to be demolished, the large greenhouse has more to offer in terms of productivity, potential energy savings and increased manpower efficiency. Portable tables have been added, resulting in an additional 100 square feet of useful workspace compared to the old layout of the two greenhouses combined.
The 100-year-old greenhouse has been optimized to preserve its heritage mission. The Commission is banking on the productivity gains to be achieved through staff well-being and investments made.
For close to 100 years, the National Battlefields Commission has grown most of the plants needed to embellish the National Battlefields Park. The first building was built in 1916 (large greenhouse) and the second (small greenhouse), in 1938. Despite the demolition of one the two oldest greenhouses in operation in Québec, the Commission will pursue its horticultural vocation with greater efficiency. The Green Environment Service produces more than 50 000 annual, biennial and perennial plants each year.
