Urbaform is undergoing a transition to reflect our growing portfolio of solutions for both urban food production and waste treatment & remediation technologies ... Watch for announcements and keep an eye on this website to track the NEW URBAFORM ...
We believe that production of food within the urban environment will become a solution in our future. Urban Farming is Agriculture 2.0 & Vertical Farming is the enabling technology ....
See our new Hydroponic Growing Pages for general information on using hydroponics for food production and see a greenhouse during winter ...
This is WHY Vertical Farming ....
"The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition."
Advances in design are constantly being worked on and we urge you to continue to monitor our efforts. Urbaform and Urbafresh are emerging as leaders in the Vertical Farming markets. Our production is Safe, Fresh and Consistent ... Safe (HACCP), Fresh (locally produced) and Consistent (24/7/365) The following are glimpses of our current technology offerings for urban food production...
Roof Top Farms
With our partner FarmRoof, Urbaform introduces popup farms on a roof. This new design paradigm allows for a fully engineered and installed rooftop food production system on your existing building. Hybrid designs are available that will blend other technologies to maximize the production potential of the space. See our section Roof Top Farms.
Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA)
The Micro Climate GroRak System for urban food production was designed for commercial scale operations and includes a Micro Climate Room (MC Room) that is a sealed CEA room that can be built inside a warehouse or existing office building. It includes floor, walls, ceiling, climate control equipment and is totally portable. Pictured is a 40'x40' MC Room. This layout features 10 GroRak NFT units featuring 7 vertical growing layers per unit. The MC Room will enable customized optimization of growing environments along with further control of contaminants as will be mandated under the new FSMA regulations.
GroRak Vertical NFT systems
The GroRak Vertical growing systems are self contained multi-tiered production units that are ideal for growing microgreens, sprouts and lettuce. The units include all the needed parts including special purpose LED grow lights.
Featuring high production outputs and consistent quality, the GroRaks are ideal for commercial production in warehouses or other indoor locations. See more information by going to our dedicated GroRak information site.
ZipGrow Vertical Growing systems
ZipGrow Spring units and discussion on light as a resource ... see the updated ZipGrow page ...
The ZipGrow vertical growing systems by Bright Agrotech is an innovative new true vertical production system. The unique system promises to deliver the optimum production capacity per square unit of floor space.
ZipGrow towers can be installed in greenhouses or indoors to produce configurations based on the type of crops being grown. Watch for some new configurations that will be designed for individual and home use.
For commercial aquaponic producers, there is not a more efficient or productive way to grow crops than in ZipGrow tower systems. Most aquaponic producers utilize rafts for production, but rafts are not productive enough per square foot to make production in greenhouses economically feasible.
