With a total capital investment of EUR 2.6m, UF De Schilde will house Europe’s largest commercial urban food production facility, covering a 1200 sqm rooftop greenhouse for specialty vegetables, a 300 sqm indoor fish farm, as well as a 250 sqm indoor hydroponic production facility with maximum reuse of fertilizers and LED grow lights.

Already dubbed the “Times Square of Urban Farming”, the building will host innovative roof signage to communicate to the outside world about what’s happening inside.

Cross over between horticulture and building automation

For Priva, the project is a cross over between horticulture and building management technology. The climate inside the greenhouse and the aquaculture system will be controlled with Priva Blue ID & Top Control 8, while the water cycle and fertigation are managed through a NutriFit system.
Priva is involved in several urban farming projects. Our two market segments, horticulture and the built environment, are reinforcing each other and offer new opportunities for the application of sustainable technologies.
