The Controlled Environment Facility (CEF) houses 20 walk in growth rooms as well as 47 free standing growth chambers, two communal laboratories and two autoclaves. This allows control over many aspects of the growing environment such as temperature, humidity, light and carbon dioxide.

Fully qualified staff provide services such as environmental monitoring, watering, pest and disease control as well as horticultural advice.
