Site Visits

site-visits01Nelson and Pade, Inc.® offers Site Visits to evaluate potential greenhouse sites and warehouse installations to help you determine what infrastructure you have and what you’ll need. The site visit can be part of the project plan, or a separate option.

A Site Visit from Nelson and Pade, Inc.® includes a personal visit to your potential site from key staff of Nelson and Pade, Inc.®  They will put on a professional presentation on aquaponics and controlled environment agriculture to the person or persons involved in the project, provide an evaluation of the infrastructure, utilities and site assets in relation to an aquaponics installation, make recommendations on the size and scope of the project, crop choices, aquaponic culture systems, commercial viability, marketing and the next steps for moving forward.  Nelson and Pade, Inc.® will provide a preliminary evaluation report within 2 weeks of the site visit.
