US (AZ): HVAC and custom-built benching for new 40,000 sq ft facility

American Green is continuing to make great progress at its new 40,000sf Cypress Chill grow operation. It has placed an order for the HVAC equipment and will be submitting architectural plans to the City of Phoenix this February, which are essential for further construction progress. Both events are big steps in moving the facility closer to its completion goal of year-end.

David Gwyther, President and Chairman of American Green, said, "We are very pleased with the progress at our new Cypress Chill Grow. Interior and exterior demolition are going extremely well. We are excited to announce that we have sent in our first equipment orders and none is bigger than HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) for a grow operation. The architectural plans have been in development for five months now and we are on track to submit the plans next month as these plans are the cornerstone for the completion of Cypress Chill."

Bryan Croteau, American Green's Director of Grow Operations, said, "Cypress Chill will be using the Agronomic IQ Smart HVAC system. It is a facility-wide cold water cooling system that will allow us to dial in the exact temperature and humidity needed for each stage of cannabis plant growth. Using only the newest state-of-the-art technology like Adiabatic Fluid Coolers, we will be able to control the environment with less than a 1% variance. The entire cultivation portion of the building will require 704 tons of cooling & dehumidification power, helping us maintain the proper balance that plant science dictates."

Mr. Croteau continues, "Production has also begun on the custom-built benching solutions provided by KG Benches. We are talking about roughly 18,270 square feet of custom-engineered V-track system rolling bench systems that will allow us to maximize the amount of cannabis grow space in each room. These custom benches allow for the movement that is needed for crucial plant maintenance, without compromising precious canopy grow space. These benches and system will provide American Green the maximum revenue per square foot of cannabis grow space that has been dedicated for cannabis production."

Mr. Jimmy Gierczyk, president of Gierczyk Inc., said, "Mr. Gwyther and Mr. Croteau from American Green have been great to work for over this past year and they are reaping the benefits of saving both time and money by going with our design and build option. I am confident that the Gierczyk team will continue to perform up to my personal and corporate standards as well as American Green's standards until the day Cypress Chill is complete."
