Multi-phase project for the South’s leading medical cannabis dispensary brand. This project has increased Good Day Farm’s canopy size to more than 80,000 SF in Louisiana and is helping to address growing patient demand for quality medical cannabis in the State.
The newly expanded cultivation facility houses over 16,000 plants with the capacity to produce more than 3,000 pounds of premium flower each month. In addition, the facility has created over 150 jobs within the Ruston community.
The first and second phases consisted of a 126,994 SF build-out including CO2 and ethanol extraction lab, processing kitchen, and packaging equipment installation. The project also involved an addition of 44,000 SF of canopy space, or the surface area dedicated to live plant production. The canopy space includes irrigation control system, HVAC system, lighting control, CO2 distribution, and supporting spaces. Over 1,510 tons of HVAC were added in the canopy cultivation space alone during these two phases.
The third phase of the project involved an additional 42,284 SF build-out to add 37,000 SF of double-stacked canopy cultivation space. Included in the canopy space are an integrated irrigation control system, HVAC system, lighting control, and CO2 distribution.
