Our Mission

We provide energy and resource efficient technology solutions that allow growers to meet the unique demands of controlled agriculture environments.

We’ve helped cultivators take control of their climates for over 15 years, and we want to pass the benefits of that experience on to you.

Extensive experience in both commercial construction and controlled environment agriculture (CEA), including cannabis facilities, is difficult to find. That’s where we come in. Our team of project managers, licensed professional engineers, technology specialists and systems integration experts help to keep your construction project on time and on budget.

We understand, probably better than anyone, the real challenges associated with cultivation facility design, and deploying the systems required to truly perfect the cultivation environment. Every design decision made in the facility affects something else. Everything must work together; nothing operates in a vacuum. Every piece must be integrated at the design level. Our engineering team has worked with every conceivable cultivation practice, and every type of system approach, to ensure that we can offer solid, unbiased advice during the decision-making process, then apply that experience to smart and well thought-out engineered designs. Our experience also provides us a stronger understanding of how HVACD energy is used in cultivation facilities, allowing us to give common sense recommendations to implement the most energy efficient options that align with the owner’s budget. Our team can help identify the scope gaps and coordination issues common in cultivation facility design before they cause budget overruns or delays. And our project management and field teams ensure the systems we design are seamlessly integrated into the facility.

While our engineering expertise, vast selection of technology, and impressive controls capabilities are tangible, obvious reasons to choose us as your partner, the intangibles that we bring to the table throughout the process are just as compelling. With Surna, you don’t get a vendor. You get a partner. We truly have your best interests in mind, and we have the experience to back it up.

Our Vision

As industry leaders in controlled environment agriculture climates, we have a responsibility to our clients, partners, and employees to work toward a better future for us all.

Earth Icon


We strive to help growers cultivate efficiently, but we are also actively minimizing our own footprint on the Earth. In addition to going digital wherever possible to save on paper and fuel consumption, we are a proud partner of One Tree Planted, a nonprofit with the goal to combat climate change through reforestation.

Equal Opportunity

We support the empowerment of people from all walks of life to achieve excellence in their work on behalf of our customers. We especially pride ourselves in the numerous leadership roles held by women who play a major part in driving forward our success as a STEM company.

Community Development

Over the years, we have watched the cannabis industry grow exponentially. We strive to not only advocate for the legalization of cannabis across North America, but also to support the fight to give U.S. veterans access to the medicinal benefits of cannabis.

20 Trees Planted For Every Commercial Project

We’ve partnered with One Tree Planted to help combat climate change by planting trees. We have made the pledge to make a donation to help plant 20 trees for every commercial project.

Each contribution made by Surna will go toward forest fire recovery efforts, specifically. The latest forest fire season on the west coast of North America has been extreme. But an impactful way to help the affected regions directly is by planting trees. Reforestation is one of the best ways to restore a healthy environment after fire damage, in which the soil and surrounding landscape are significantly damaged. One Tree Planted plants trees in a variety of different locations affected by the fires, with a current focus on Oregon and British Columbia. They only plant local native tree species, and reforestation is begun after professional assessments are made to determine where human intervention would be most ecologically beneficial due to a lack of natural regeneration.

Planting trees helps to restore damaged ecosystems, stabilize soil, support the water cycle, and slowly recover the vital ecosystem services that we all depend on. Because of this, One Tree Planted’s work is helping make progress toward the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. And the fire recovery program in particular especially impacts climate action, life on land, and clean water.
