We are working with the agricultural start-up Article Number 25 to demonstrate the feasibility of constructing commercial-scale farms using greenhouse technology in city centres. We are studying the market for locally produced food in urban areas, and the existing UK building stock, identifying the building types most suited for the development of urban farms.

The study will assess the feasibility of incorporating rooftop farms either as a retrofit to existing buildings, or integrated into new build projects: housing blocks, schools, hospitals, supermarkets, shopping malls, car parks, offices and telecoms infrastructure.
