Slideshow: Controlled Environment Agriculture Research Complex
Construction crews are finishing work on the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) Controlled Environment Agriculture Research Complex (CEARC) at the Waterman Agricultural and Natural Resources Laboratory. Teams are working on final finishes in the head house, which includes laying down carpet, painting and installing cabinetry in the kitchens. Testing on the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems in the greenhouses began in early July to make sure they’re working properly. Final landscaping touches will continue through the end of July.
Construction progress includes:
- Rolling inspections.
- Site work continues and hardscape is complete.
- Furniture is tentatively scheduled for delivery in early August.
- Carts and growing equipment are being moved in and installed.
