Surna’s unique and innovative technologies address the energy and resource intensive nature of indoor cultivation. Properly controlled environments can lead to higher yields, more reliability and more security.
Our technical experience and know-how in designing indoor cannabis cultivation facilities allow us to deliver to our customers practical solutions to complicated problems in three primary areas: precision climate and environmental controls, energy and water efficiency, and building code permitting. Our engineering design typically includes all mechanical components of a climate control system: cooling and heating, dehumidification, ventilation, air sanitation and odor control. We provide load calculations, equipment specifications, engineered systems drawings and equipment for both the cultivation and comfort cooling portions of our customers’ facilities. We also have experience in, or knowledge of, state and local permitting and code compliance for cannabis facilities in states and provinces where cannabis has been legalized for either recreational or medical use, or is expected to be legalized.
Since 2006, we have been continuously improving our products and designs which we believe distinguishes us from our competition, including local heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) contractors, traditional HVAC design consultants, and others who may lack our cannabis-specific expertise, and misapply comfort cooling equipment not designed for this industry.
Traditional mechanical engineers, without our cannabis experience, are typically unfamiliar with the precise climate and air control requirements needed for cannabis cultivation. As important, they may be unable to effectively navigate the local code and permitting rules which did not contemplate cannabis cultivation facilities when enacted. With our engineering design resources and experience, we are able to provide a code-compliant mechanical plan set in any state or province by collaborating with local regulators and our customers to come up with creative solutions that not only meet the intent of the local codes but also address concerns about the growing energy and resource usage of these facilities.
The mechanical design can have the single biggest impact on costs and product quality throughout the life of a cultivation facility. Recurring costs based on energy consumption and even more importantly, the impact on product yields and biosecurity can be tied back directly to the climate’s environment. Surna can design your precise climate control environment so you can be successful from the beginning of your journey.
