We recently completed a mushroom farm in Armenia. To lower the
investment costs an approach was taken whereby the ceiling of the growing
room is also the roof of the building. This method considerably reduces the
costs involved in construction. The entire building is placed on a slope in the
same way as greenhouses are to enable good drainage of the roof and floor.
The growing rooms are filled with phase 3 compost in blocks, supplied by
a Dutch firm. This allows mushrooms to be produced without the need to
invest in a compost production plant. A heat pump combined with a well is
used at the farm to help achieve considerable energy savings.
