When looking at aspects that have an impact on the overall productivity and efficiency of a commercial cannabis production facility, one of, if not the largest, influences is in the facility design. By having a properly designed facility, as well as adhering to proven SOP’s and using the most up-to-date technologies, a cultivator can increase flowering square footage, obtain more harvests per year and increase yields. The combination of increased flower space, additional numbers of annual harvests, and improved yields all amounts to a substantial total increase in facility productivity.
Variable factors that can influence a facility’s design include:
- Type of facility – indoor, greenhouse, outdoor
- Facility layout
- Support column placement
- Room dimensions
- Variable costs by location/region – energy, water, real estate, etc.
- Minimizing pest and microbial pressures
