AbstractThe purpose of this project was to demonstrate that a shipping container could cost effectively be converted into a growth chamber for lettuce and mushrooms. The tasks our team handled were renovating the interior of the chamber to utilize two different growing methods for lettuce; a variation of the nutrient film technique (NFT) known as A-frame, and a deep flow system. This included installing racks to support flood tables, wiring and installing lighting, fabricating the A-frame from scratch, and testing all of our system components. We were also in charge of plant care, and designing our system to ultimately support plant life as best as possible.
