Here at Surna, we do a lot of things. But there is one thing at the core of what we do that we don’t talk about much– our engineering services. Setting up a commercial cannabis cultivation facility inevitably involves engineers– to help design the space and pick out equipment, among other things. We’re very fortunate to have an amazing staff of experienced and smart people to design our equipment, design our clients’ facilities and help maintain products after they’re up and running. So, I decided to sit down with Marc Nathan, Surna’s engineering manager, to get his thoughts on the unique nature of engineering for cannabis cultivation facilities.

There are many positives about growing in an indoor, sealed environment. The vast majority of cannabis cultivators rely on this method to maximize output. Indoor gardens allow cultivators to get multiple harvest per year while reducing exposure to pests, fungus and bacteria. Further, indoor cultivation eliminates outside conditions as a concern for indoor climate, and ensures a secure operation.
When creating a cultivation center, selecting the right equipment from the start is crucial to success. This means talking to engineers who have sized climate control systems for cannabis, building the right size garden for your budget and knowing which equipment is often undervalued within a garden.
