When it comes to running a successful indoor grow facility, having a space that supports your workflow is critical. Today’s market is more competitive than ever, but there are ways that you can set up your facility to help meet your business goals. Below, we discuss some tips for functional commercial cannabis grow room design.
Tips for Designing Your Cannabis Cultivation Facility
Facility design can make or break your grow operation’s business plan. Failure to plan properly can create expensive (sometimes insurmountable) challenges. While the specific needs of your cannabis business will impact your setup, the following aspects are important for any indoor grow operation.
Divided Floor Plan
Your commercial grow room design plan must account for your workflow throughout the space. You’ll most likely want a divided grow room setup. Not only does this allow for easier control of temperature and lighting for plants in different stages of growth, but it also allows you to quickly quarantine plants if you experience any pest or mold outbreaks, limiting any downtime associated.
For indoor growers, efficient HVAC systems and dehumidifiers are critical to the health of their cannabis plants. Consistent temperatures, air circulation, and proper moisture levels directly impact plant growth. For that reason, environmental controls need to be appropriately sized, maintain energy efficiency, have redundancies, and be both cleanable and repairable. Failure to do so can lead to inconsistencies, mold and rot, and crop loss.
Continuously running HVAC systems circulates dust and other particles in the growing area. A proper filtration system helps with both particles and odor control. These systems improve air quality for your plants and limit odors from fertilizer, nutrients, and your plants themselves. Additionally, it means a more comfortable working environment for your employees.
Indoor commercial grow rooms are reliant on high-quality lighting. Whether you have HIDs, Medal Halides, HPS, or LED lights, there are several considerations to make. When installing grow lights, you’ll need to factor in controls for heat, intensity, and the distance between your lights and plants.
