Good Day Farm is the largest licensed medical cannabis producer in the South, supplying the region with cannabis products in various formats, including flowers, edibles, and topical creams. This project involved a 101,319 SF renovation of a former drum and container warehouse to accommodate Good Day Farm’s rapidly expanding operations, including a 42,000 SF canopy facility for growing crops.
This $24.5 million project was completed on an accelerated, fast-track schedule, with construction completed in 4.5 months, or an average of 845 SF finished per day. The type of schedule required the team to strategically plan through lead times on equipment and materials.
Resembling a regular manufacturing plant, this cultivation and growth facility has the necessary space and equipment to handle the entire cannabis cultivation process – through growth, harvesting and drying, packaging, and preparation for distribution. The project was completed in two phases. The first phase was for the 62,000 SF Cultivation Building and was essentially a phase within a phase. The main priority in the first phase was the flower and vegetation rooms. The second phase was the 34,000 SF Processing Building, which houses the vault, additional flower rooms, extraction, and packaging. In addition, over 1,800 tons of HVAC were added between the two buildings.
There are 21 flower/vegetation rooms in the Cultivation Building and four additional rooms in the Processing Building. Most of the MEP equipment involved unique systems specifically designed to support the perfect growing conditions for the cannabis plant.
