Business and Facility Planning

Root Sciences now offers comprehensive facility and process consulting services.

Developing a profitable cannabis processing facility can be an extremely complex effort. In many cases, it requires concurrent involvement from numerous specialists with cannabis-specific experience. Without proper facility planning from the very beginning, the risk of design errors, costly repairs, and future renovations increases. From start to finish, our team is committed to our clients’ successful launch of profitable operations.

Our clients understand the intrinsic value of working with Root Sciences’ team of technical experts. Backed by years of first-hand practitioner experience and technical know-how, Root Sciences’ team has the unique ability to work hand-in-hand with business owners to assist with equipment selection or help manage the entire process. This ensures the new facility is properly designed and equipped with the most suitable technology for the needs of the operation.
