Plant-Focused Cultivation Systems Design & Integration
Designing an Environment for Optimal Plant Performance
Cultivation Systems Design for Efficiency and Speed to Market
Complex Systems Require Expert Design
Large-scale cultivation facilities are extremely complex and highly customized to meet the unique specifications and needs of each operation.
Cultivation Systems & Building Systems
Integrated turn-key design eliminates the “gap” between cultivation systems and building systems to maximize efficiency and plant performance.
Efficiency for a Competitive Market
Facility efficiency is critical in an increasingly competitive market. Successful growers must take a holistic approach to design to maximize return on investment.
Design Pitfall #1: Piecemeal Design
Often, we see facilities designed piecemeal. When the time comes to integrate systems, they don't work together (or don't work well). By the time conflicts are realized, it's late-stage in the project. Expect to pay change orders to correct design mistakes.
Design Pitfall #2: Inexperienced Teams & Complex Systems
We have also seen facilities that ran out of money or were forced to value engineer to a level which seriously degraded their ability to be successful in the short and long term.
Design Pitfall #3: Low Bids vs Best Value
Using contractors, trades, or suppliers because they are the low bid? Low bids often reduce yields or and deliver failed crop cycles.
Solar Therapeutics is an off-the-grid cannabis producer and Massachusetts. All the power we make here is on-site. We chose the Fluence lights which lowered our energy profile as well as reducing the size of our HVAC systems. urban-gro made it an attractive deal for us through their whole building design.
