INDOOR CULTIVATION FACILITY | WHAT IS AN OWNER’S ENGINEER?

23 September 2019

Owner’s Engineers provide technical ability to an Owner. These technical professionals fill experience gaps in the development of an indoor cultivation facility and protect the interest of the owner. Owner’s Engineering Companies also provide access to a cadre of multi-disciplinary professionals who primarily focus on avoiding design errors. They also keep your indoor growing facility or greenhouse project on schedule and within a stated budget.

Owner’s Engineers are different from the Engineer of Record for an indoor cultivation facility design. They are also not the General Contractor or Greenhouse Contractor. Owner’s Engineers are sub-contracted entities that work directly with the Owner to deliver a project as desired. This means sourcing relevant engineering consultants and construction partners and working with them through the development process. It also means reviewing designs and submittals to ensure compliance with technical specifications and delivery of stated quality programs.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN OWNER’S ENGINEER AND A DESIGN OR BUILD PARTNER?

Therefore, the role of the Owner’s Engineer is oversite to ensure compliance with contract requirements. The Engineer of Record are the consulting engineer partner with ultimate responsibility for the overall design.

This type of engineer deploys early in the planning process. They help selecting design professionals and construction partners and their role is highly flexible. This means they can be involved during any phase of the project life-cycle timeline.

HOW LONG IS AN OWNERS ENGINEER INVOLVEMENT?

Indoor cultivation facility and greenhouse projects last 12 – 36 months depending on scope and scale. An Owner’s Engineer protects an Owner’s interest throughout this entire process.
