Algae Lagoon

The Commercial Greenhouse Division at Rough Brothers Inc. (RBI) has integrated an above ground lagoon into their Algae Greenhouse design. The above ground design was created as an alternative to forming and pouring permanent concrete pond walls or excavating into questionable soil conditions necessary for below ground ponds.

The Rough Brothers greenhouse and lagoon can be uniquely designed to an exact size, shape and specification. The lagoon is cost effectively engineered from galvanized steel, high-density polystyrene and a durable polymer liner. By sourcing the commercial greenhouse and production lagoon together, algae growing space and production efficiency can be optimized.

Rough Brothers provides a full turn-key process of design, manufacturing, equipment integration and installation to simplify the construction process. The company has been providing innovative greenhouse, ventilation, and irrigation solutions to the horticultural market for more than 80 years.
