Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing (MEP) design has always been an important factor for efficient growth under a cannabis facility, in order to maintain an optimum environment for the yield to grow at its finest. Large businesses keep a keen eye on these factors since they play an important role in producing a good crop yield.
Mechanical engineering in cannabis facilities involves the regulation of ventilation, heating and air conditioning. Cannabis growing facilities require a precise and calculated work environment for their growth, thus calculating temperatures and providing proper heat to the yield is crucial for efficient production. Furthermore, proper air circulation is also required in order to keep the high temperatures at a normal level, and spread the heating in grow rooms so the temperature is normalized.
Electrical engineering in cannabis facilities also consists of efficient lighting and proper usage of electrical services on the premises. One of the issues highlighted by the operators of these facilities is the usage of lighting. Energy usage is one of the biggest challenges to tackle in the electrical department. Since light sources consume drastic amounts of energy, and produce heat energy of their own, proper care and handling for them is paramount. For lesser energy costs, and to neutralize the heat they produce, it’s important how the facility will use lighting in their grow rooms.
Plumbing design in cannabis facilities generally contains proper drainage and efficient irrigation systems for the crop yield. Experts advise installing reclamation systems for water in order to reduce waste and save money by recycling used water, through reverse osmosis. This decreases costs and water usage. This consideration should be taken early when starting a business since it is a terrific idea with respect to the budget. Moreover, for labor ease, eyewash stations and emergency shower rooms should be installed in the building so that in case of any emergency involving chemicals, hazards can be avoided easily with the access of water for bathing purposes. Moreover, hard sinks can be installed in every grow room to provide instant access to water to the local body.
