Anyone financially vested in a cultivation organization or looking to put capital to work in the Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) industry will benefit from Integrated Bioengineering’s professional technical services and industry related affiliations.
We understand that simply reducing facility cost can yield tragic consequences if staff cannot perform cultivate related processes or if critical infrastructure is incapable of delivering operational objectives.
Creating uniquely engineered solutions for the owner, fiduciary, or associated investor of an indoor growing enterprise. Our professional technical services ensure capital dollars are spent wisely and effectively to get the best value. Intensive planning and design increases transparency, revenue potential, and assets value while reducing risk and ensuring compliance with all regulatory agency demands.
We understand the challenges associated with starting and scaling a CEA business and can quickly review and understand plans for feasibility. Our analysis is invaluable for any owner early in the planning process, which can get overwhelming without a thorough understanding of the project development process, industry supply chain, and operational requirements.
Our objective in any analysis is to prove technology and economic viability of a proposed project. This is done by first understanding the unique long-term ambitions of our clients through strong relationships and thorough document review. Then, we work in partnership to refine and improve the accuracy of financial assumptions as they relate to capital expenses, life-cycle costs, timelines, etc.
Over the life of a cultivation facility, the costs to build and maintain the building area small fraction of the investment’s life-cycle cost analysis, (LCCA). The cost of staff far outweighs design and construction related costs, meaning that the cost of the facilities and associated maintenance are not the key drivers in LCCA. What is more critical is how effective the space is utilized, and what technology is applied to make the process of cultivation easier.
We focus on operational efficiency and work with owners and their respective design professionals to plan and review processes and identify means of reducing labor, energy use, and water intensity while increasing biological, microbial, and food safety.
Our services focus on boosting horticultural production quality, capacity, and consistency. We believe that improved product quality empowers a supplier to demand higher price points in their respective market. Increases in production capacity and consistency means there will be more product to supply and less risk of brand tarnishing supply disruptions. These benefits all add up to top-line growth for any high-value crop.
Property, plant, and equipment assets are more valuable to owners and potential acquirers when they are fully operable, intelligent, energy efficient, maintainable, reliable, and readily scalable for future production needs. Our philosophy centers around these design characteristics and ensures that a facility owner has a quality long-term solution that accounts for total life-cycle cost.
