We offer 2 different consultancy services:
• Greenhouse Consultation and Purchasing.
• Project development consultation.
1) Greenhouse Consultation & Purchasing service:
This service consists of consulting with the client in regards to his/her greenhouse needs. After we define together what type of greenhouse is required, we contact our network of greenhouse manufacturers to outsource the best-customized quotations on behalf of the client and assist him/her throughout the purchasing process. We work with greenhouse manufacturers in the USA, Spain, Turkey, and China.
When it comes to greenhouses ramifications, it took us years to perfect our knowledge and expertise as well as develop the most strategic relationships and alliances with leading greenhouse manufacturers worldwide.… Our greenhouse consultation service saves money to the customer: we know what type of greenhouse is needed, what the components and prices should be, and greenhouse manufacturers are not playing games with us… the fee we charge for our greenhouse consultation & purchasing service is always offset by the savings we negotiate on behalf of our customers
We are not just a greenhouse consultancy and brokerage firm: we are first and foremost greenhouse farmers ourselves.
We define the most appropriate greenhouse components needed for the project (insect screening, automated air vents, atomizers, humidity control equipment, wet walls, heating system, off-the-grid options, choice of polycarbonate grade, glass, and other materials, etc.).
A greenhouse proposal always includes the structure which is built by the manufacturer, however the fans, the atomizers/foggers, the CO2 regulators, the heaters, the wet walls etc. are usually built by other manufacturers. Greenhouse manufacturers build the structure and outsource most of the parts and components from other manufacturers.
At Agrotonomy Corp., when working with our network of greenhouse manufacturers, we know which brand we want for each item. In other terms, we might work with a greenhouse manufacturer in China and choose a climate control system from the Netherlands.
This greenhouse consultation and purchasing service is from start to finish (from consulting with the client to actually purchasing the greenhouse and working out the building process logistics). Agrotonomy Corp. is not responsible for the building process of the greenhouse.
Agrotonomy Corp. opens up its network of greenhouse manufacturers and starts working on quotations only after full payment has been issued.
2) Project development consultation services:
When buying a Tower Farm, we offer 2 free days of Tower Farm installation supervision and staff training on location. We always come as 2 individuals when going on location. In most cases, such Tower Farm installation supervision and staff training process only takes 48 hours. In other terms, this part is included with the purchase of your Tower Farm.
Additional days on location (for the installation and training) are being invoiced at the rate of $375 per person per day (+ expense).
For project development (crop strategies, potential integration of other grow system, expansion, etc.), we work on retainer only and we charge $ 105 per hour for the first 50 hours of consultation, and $85 per hour for each subsequent hour of consultation.
The first 50 hours are payable upon contracting our services as a retainer fee. In other terms, we require $5250 as a retainer fee (worth 50 hours of consultation at $105 per hour… Subsequent hours are invoiced at the rate of $85).
Once again, when on location, we invoice $375 per day (as a discounted rate). The client is responsible for travel expenses, food, and lodging.
Please note: We can only make the commitment to come on location for more than 2 days as long as we have access to a proper internet connection.
