Conservatory Division 5513 Vine Street CincinnatiOH45217

Rough Brothers is now part of Prospiant, encompassing five industry leading companies, providing extensive products and services across the industry.

The Conservatory Division at Prospiant represents one of many specialized internal teams. Although overall project responsibility rests with a single Prospiant project manager, there is an equally talented and experienced group of people right behind that project manager who help insure the success of every project.

Much of Prospiant’s Conservatory Division’s success is directly attributable to the American Public Gardens Association and its member gardens. Of similar importance is Prospiant’s continued design emphasis on performance over “looks.” Prospiant always strives to have your final conservatory design blend with the architectural intent or theme of the gardens, and always allows for a world class plant exhibit facility. Accordingly, Prospiant’s role in the early design stages of any conservatory has become more beneficial to the project’s overall success.

People often ask, “What is the difference between a greenhouse and a conservatory?” Prospiant sees the key difference being: greenhouses are for plants; conservatories are for plants and people. No matter how complex the design, the challenge is to create an environment that allows the plant life to flourish, but also provides a comfortable experience for the visitor. Achieve these two performance aspects and deliver them in a fashion that is both energy efficient and maximizes the facility’s service life; and expectations are you will have a hugely successful project.
