Arpi’s North is proud to provide expert HVAC and mechanical services for general contractors who take on complex or large-volume projects across Northern Alberta. We are transparent and agile partners in the tender and delivery process and proactive, communicative managers who foresee obstacles and resolve on-site challenges promptly. One of the projects we are most proud of being a part of is the Freedom Cannabis production facility in Edmonton, Alberta.
Freedom Cannabis in Edmonton, Alberta
The Freedom Cannabis production facility in Edmonton, AB is a 126,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art cannabis production center that focuses on quality control and safety. Their modern facility utilizes the latest technology to produce premium medical grade cannabis products. It features an indoor grow room with precise climate controls, advanced nutrient management systems, and superior air exchange capabilities.
This is a food grade Cannabis production facility that incorporates strict anti-contamination protocols. Each grow room in the facility has its own independent air handling dehumidification unit that is controlled by a Priva control system. The fertigation system is automated and distributes fertilized irrigation water to all rooms in the facility and can have the fertilizer mixer changed and the system flushed automatically.
Arpi’s North Work with Freedom Cannabis
Arpi’s North is proud to have played a major role in the completion of the Freedom Cannabis production facility.
Phase 1 of the Freedom Cannabis project had to be completed and operational in 10 months. Arpi’s North joined the project at the 50% design stage and assisted the consultants through design, equipment selection and procurement. As a result, Phase 1 was completed on schedule. The entire mechanical fabrication and installation scope incorporated Building Information Modeling (BIM).
Arpi’s North Using Building Information Modeling
Arpi’s North utilizes Building Information Modeling (BIM) a revolutionary technology that has drastically changed the way buildings are designed, managed and constructed. Using BIM, Arpi’s North generates 3D models for mechanical services using Revit software, implements models for on-site coordination, and utilizes models for off-site fabrication.
With BIM, teams have more visibility into their project’s progression, allowing them to make better decisions faster. BIM also saves time on projects by simplifying coordination between different departments as well as streamlining communication across all disciplines involved in the building process.
Arpi’s North and Cannabis Facilities
Arpi’s North is proud to be a leader in facility-specific HVAC systems for closed environment greenhouse cannabis production. A commercial HVAC system is a key component for any commercial cannabis facility, so it is important that it is optimized efficiently and effectively. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution for cannabis grow facility HVAC systems and your needs today may not match your needs tomorrow.
It’s important to keep future growth in mind: as the industry expands, so might your operation. Arpi’s North can create a custom approach to control the humidity and temperature in your cannabis grow facility to help produce a superior product that conserves energy and saves you money.
