Facilitate Expedited Design/Build Process
With a client motivated by schedule, we delivered a 50,000 square foot, multi-use building in 16 months, about half the scope’s normal timeframe.
Ensure LEED Platinum Certification
To uphold Ecofibre’s fundamental commitment to producing sustainable products, our building met the rigid standards to achieve LEED Platinum Certification, the first for any hemp processing facilities.
Conceive an Inspiring Workspace
Attracting and retaining employees is critical to the success of any business, so we built a workplace that will instill employee pride and serve as a strong appeal to recruits.
Shape the Facility as a Marketing Tool
First and foremost, we were charged with creating a landmark to welcome Ecofibre customers and prospective clients. From the exterior hemp garden, to the product showcase, to the transparent manufacturing clean rooms, to the spacious warehousing, the entire campus was shaped for customer tours.
Ecofibre’s significant sales force requires a host of office styles, from large meeting spaces to smaller huddle rooms, to work most effectively.
Specialized systems were integrated to create negative- and positive-pressure rooms affording both the containment of gasses and dispersal of contaminants as needed.
Functional design principles helped shape efficient workspaces to maximize employee productivity.
Ecofibre’s U.S. headquarters has achieved LEED Platinum Certification with design features including light-channeling Solatubes, geothermal HVAC, rain water collection systems, high-volume low-speed fans, and solar panels.
