Medical Cannabis Farm Design & Build

Client: Hilltop Leaf Ltd

Location: Undisclosed, Scotland

Project overview:

  • Design 1.1 hectares glasshouse
  • Secure planning permission
  • Develop support service buildings
  • Oversee entire construction process
  • Design & install growing system
  • Assist with Home Office licencing application

The benefits for our client:

Constructing the glasshouse on time and within budget empowered our client to push on with their ambitious production plans.

After completing the initial build, more than £2.7m of funding was successfully secured to accelerate the project. Should it meet the EU’s rigorous GMP standards, the first supply of cannabis medicines should reach the market by early 2022.

In the long term, the glasshouse has the potential to harness renewable energy which could power the majority of its day-to-day operations.

The solution:

In a bid to secure planning permission for Scotland’s first legal medical cannabis farm, our experts played a leading role in its design and development.

From inception to construction, we were on hand to oversee every aspect. Our expertise was also required to help their licence applications progress with the Home Office and Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

More than 70,000 tonnes of stone needed transporting to the undisclosed and high-security site during preparatory work, so that the hill-side site could be levelled out to install the new glasshouse facility and supporting buildings.

After four months of hard labour, the project’s second phase required us to install a fully-tailored growing system designed to create the perfect environment for growing cannabis.
