Our Experience Designing Nutraceutical and Biotechnology Plants

Not all cooks have the same experience, and not all engineering companies have designed nutraceutical, biotechnology, or cannabis plants.

We have worked with a multitude of companies in the nutraceutical, biotechnology, and cannabis space. From edible consumer products to laboratory testing, we have expertise in creating hygienic, optimized spaces that work.
