STARFIELD CENTRE MAGRATH

Raspberries grown in GrennhousesStarfield Magrath Starfield Centre Magrath is our flag ship location featuring a state-of-the-art farm, a wholesome plant and water science research facility, a K–12 education hub, a public ag-tourism visitor centre and a demonstration project of what can be achieved in Southern Alberta.

 

It is important that the natural features of the land, the water and the light are used in conjunction with and reflected in the buildings design to create a very pleasing aesthetic and a masterful flowing use of space and landscaping.

 

The initial stages of building focus on simple functionality to turn a profit. Over time this functionality will evolve to beauty through the implementation or natural and cultural aspects, including the addition of artistic details and art installations; this must be kept in mind during the design process to create an intrinsic, pleasing aesthetic base to build upon.

 

We believe our staff will be with us for life if treated and trained well. They are as important to us as our customer, it is essential that all staff areas are welcoming, well lit, spacious, comfortable, quiet and most importantly safe.

 

The Project will include these key elements:

 

Controlled Environment Crop Houses
