East Coast IGC Sam Bridge Expands with Eco-Friendly Greenhouse

Tuesday, February 18, 2014

GREENWICH, CT – Sam Bridge Nursery & Greenhouses has broken ground on a greenhouse that will create a new, energy-efficient retail hub at the independent garden center, ranked No. 80 in IGC Magazine's IGC 100 report with $6.8 million in sales from a single store. The greenhouse, set to open in this spring, will house a new retail area, growing range, potting area and more at the garden center's existing location. Plans call for eco-friendly features that include zone heating, heat curtains and an open roof that will eliminate the need for cooling fans. The Nexus greenhouse will also allow for the collection of roof runoff to be recirculated and used for irrigation.
