UK Salads Ltd. have given the go-ahead to CMW Horticulture and Certhon for a 13,200 square metre development at their Hoe Lane site in the Lea Valley. The new block will enable UK Salads to add home produced speciality tomatoes to their existing product range alongside peppers, cucumbers and aubergines.
The new turnkey greenhouse project will also include a boiler house, irrigation room and packing shed along with water storage tanks and heating system including boiler and buffer.
This latest co-operative project between CMW Horticulture and Certhon will see Certhon taking care of the greenhouse and heating and CMW working alongside them to supply and install the thermal screens, crop gutters and air tube system.
Work on the foundations started in early July, for planting of the first crop next season.
