The GOISD's Career Technical Education Department's new agriculture program will use the facility.
It is the first school year for the GOISD's ag program for Gogebic County students. The district began a similar program for Ontonagon County students last year in Ontonagon that included the building of a similar greenhouse.
In Ironwood, the 32-by-40-foot structure is being built north of the school, just east of the football field. Klobis said its construction displaced the long jump pit.
Moyle Construction, of Houghton, is general contractor for the project. Klobis said the bids for the Ironwood greenhouse came in at $136,350. While the windowed walls and roof are up, he said the plan is to pour the concrete floor this spring.
The Ontonagon greenhouse opened this past fall at a cost of $123,000.
