Our team works with you, other stakeholders, and other design team members early in the design process to determine the correct programming of the space. We then work with you to design and specify a complete system for growing your plants.

We provide drawings and specifications for tender with construction cost estimates based on multiple comparable past projects across North America with our partners.

We can design a wide variety of greenhouse facilities, ranging from plant production ranges, garden centers, compartmentalized research greenhouses, bio-containment greenhouses, conservatories and custom structures.

A Brief Corporate History

GShort.com LLC, was formed as an LLC in 2006 from a company formerly known as GS Engicom. That company was started in 2001 by Gregg and Gwen Short. In the early years, Gwen worked from home starting a Website Marketing and Design business while our two children were born and raised. In 2006, we switched roles and Gregg left the hydroponic greenhouse company CropKing Inc, to run the business and expand his greenhouse consulting business. As of 2014, we no longer take on new web marketing and design projects. While we enjoyed that part of the business, keeping current on web marketing trends and technology was taking too much time away from our primary passion of greenhouse consulting. We are now focusing all of our attention on those clients.

We are located in Northern Wayne County, Ohio minutes from I-71. We are members of the Wooster Area Chamber of Commerce. Off-line we can be reached at:
