10 Cannabis Production Facilities Planned For Construction in the U.S.

 In Construction Wire, New Construction

As the decriminalization of marijuana sweeps through America, the demand for cannabis facilities is on the uptick.

And by 2027, the global legal cannabis industry is expected to be a $74 billion dollar industry.

In every U.S. state where marijuana is legal, companies are scratching and clawing to gain city approval and start building. 

As such, there’s a cannabis facility construction boom in California, Massachusetts, and Michigan where it seems like new projects are being proposed weekly.

At first glance, these buildings resemble regular manufacturing facilities.

But the truth is that these cannabis facilities are more like research laboratories than anything else.  

And there’s opportunity for those that cater to these facilities.

These structures can be sophisticated and they may require complex plumbing, electrical, security services, alarm systems, POS systems, CCTV, waste collection, sanitization, and HVAC services to name a few.

Because it’s not yet legal in every state, expect cannabis facility owners, developers and investors to continue building in states where they feel most welcome.  

We’re going to be looking at ten facilities that are either being planned or in early construction throughout portions of the nation.
