integrating complex systems for indoor cultivation facilities
Design, Engineering, and Complex Systems Integration for High-Performance Cultivation Facilities in North America and Europe
Our team of expert engineers and designers have experience in the design, engineering, and start-up / commissioning of more than 350 facilities across North America. We provide turn-key cannabis facility design services and solutions that not only meet our customers’ business goals, but also drive efficient workflow that interoperates with the environment, people, plants, and processes.
Our team provides cannabis facility design to meet the most stringent of regulatory environments, whether they are energy efficiency goals (code required), Good Agricultural Practices (GAP), or Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) certification.
our comprehensive design services
Considering the importance of seamless integration of all building systems, a deficiency in one or more systems can impact the facility’s overall efficiency and performance. The result may be reduced cannabis yields, increased energy consumption, and reduced market competitiveness.
What outcome can you expect from working with urban-gro?
A sustainable, long-term economic advantage for your cultivation practice that drives production cost lower while influencing a higher yield.
Cultivation Space Programming (CSP)
Cultivation Space Programming is the foundation of an organized, informed approach. It enables the business and cultivation functions to work in unison to efficiently and consistently produce economically competitive cannabis.
Mechanical Design & Engineering (MEP)
With the ability to provide stamped drawings in every state and province, our MEP design and engineering services offer expert design of HVAC and electrical systems for purpose-built cannabis facilities with specific environmental needs.
Integrated Cultivation Design (ICD)
Often referred to as the “guts of the grow,” our holistic cultivation system design and engineering teams ensure critical systems are designed for integrated, optimal performance. These systems drive business performance and enable repeatability and scale.
Commissioning / gro-care Services
Our Commissioning and gro-care teams support our growers in-facility and virtually to verify the proper installation of cultivation systems, that the desired systems functionality is realized, and to train the cultivation staff to prevent downtime and loss of production by ensuring business continuity is maintained.
Renovations / Upgrades / Repurposing of Existing Buildings into Cannabis Cultivation Facilities
Nearly 80% of our design of indoor cannabis facilities involves the repurposing of existing facilities. Our cannabis facility design teams perform site investigations of existing buildings to ensure adequate space, utilities, and that the existing building attributes are conducive to transformation into a high-performance indoor cultivation facility. As stated by Brian Zimmerman of grow2guys, “The building will reveal itself.”
A Collaborative Approach with Design and Construction Teams
The methods and approaches to the design and construction of cultivation facilities are still quickly evolving. We work efficiently with both veteran teams and those new to the industry. Our collaboration goals and focus on execution remain consistent: we help teams answer the unexpected design questions before they become construction problems. We proactively address construction issues before they are left for the owner to resolve—which is oftentimes too late.
Where are You in the Design / Build Process?
