Temescal Wellness recently celebrated the grand opening of its new 71,400 square feet cannabis grow facility. The facility will increase the company’s production and cultivation capacity, allowing it to expand its portfolio of product offerings for consumers throughout the region.
“At the forefront of this project is our new and larger cultivation space, which paves the way for expanded manufacturing and production space. North Adams is a community with natural beauty, a strong, available workforce, and the city has been great to work with,” said Alex Hardy, chief executive officer of Temescal Wellness. “We recognize consumers are eager for high-quality flower, as well as novel, innovative and functional cannabis products. In addition to expanded flower lineages and offerings, we are looking forward to delivering marijuana-infused products like our cartridges and edibles to more people, in addition to new products we are developing in our product pipeline,” he said.
Temescal Wellness partnered with ARCO National Construction, an industry-leading design-build general contractor, for the project - a renovation of an existing building owned by Innovative Industrial Properties. In addition to interior renovations, the project included structural upgrades and exterior modifications to accommodate new equipment and lighting.
The facility features a 61,800 square feet production area, including 1,376 LED grow lights. Automation features include movable grow benching, pot filler, transplanter, and a table return crane. The building also includes a management system to monitor and control the HVAC, fertigation, and automated equipment. Once fully operational, the facility will employ approximately 80 people.
