Topic Description > Indoor Grow Facilities - Lessons Learned

With the recent growth in the cannibals industry, owners and engineers are struggling to design their systems and buildings to meet the needs of this specialized crop.  Owners are pushing for yield, inexpensive mechanical systems, and optimal CO2 levels.  Engineers are struggling to efficiently heat, cool, dehumidify, and maintain the  CO2 levels while meeting occupancy codes.  We will discuss the unique challenges of  indoor grow facilities, how these challenges were addressed, and see examples of successful operations and not so successful operations.
