EXPERT ENGINEERING BY LICENSED PE’S
Our in-house design and engineering capabilities empower us to deliver solutions that lead to healthier crops, improved energy efficiency, and superior reliability. With our help, your growing operation will have an optimized environmental control system that does right by you and your plants.
Unlike in a traditional HVAC setting, indoor cultivation facilities require climate control solutions that attend to the unique needs of the plant. In order to achieve the most precise and efficient grow room climate, choose engineers who have a solid understanding of variables unique to controlled environment agriculture such as lighting, watering schedules, humidity, plant transpiration rates, airflow, odor control, regulation requirements, and more. Our specialized team of licensed MEP engineers provide the sophisticated approach to indoor agriculture you’ve been looking for.
After architects complete the floor plans, engineers must design the nuts and bolts of the facility; how will you heat, cool and dehumidify the cultivation spaces? Do you need an electrical service upgrade? Can your plumbing systems handle fresh and waste water effectively? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered, and we can provide fully-stamped construction documents.
Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) Modeling is an advanced 3D tool that engineers can use to more accurately predict the distribution of temperature, humidity, and CO2 throughout the grow space. Incorporating CFD analysis into your facility design helps fine-tune your system before purchasing and installing equipment. We offer CFD modeling for clients who are looking for a highly-optimized grow room environment.
Our engineering team can work with our partner, The GMP Collective, to ensure your facility meets Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). GMP is a system for ensuring that products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards. It is designed to minimize the risks involved in the production of cannabis that cannot be eliminated through testing the final product. GMP covers all aspects of production, from the starting materials, premises, and equipment to the training and personal hygiene of staff. For growers looking for consistent, safe final product, we can help.
