Our Experience

At ARCO/Murray, we specialize in designing and building controlled environment agriculture facilities, including food agriculture greenhouses, vertical farms, and cannabis cultivation facilities. Our team of experts have a deep understanding of the unique requirements of the industry and use cutting-edge technology to deliver efficient and sustainable facilities. We take pride in our ability to provide the highest level of support and expertise to ensure the success of our client’s indoor agriculture endeavors.

Indoor Agriculture

As urban populations continue to grow, the need for local and efficiently produced food becomes more pressing. CEA offers a solution to food scarcity by allowing fresh, locally grown food to be produced year-round, regardless of climate.

Indoor farming and plant cultivation have advanced to the point where food can be grown indoors without sacrificing taste or quality. In addition, indoor agriculture is a sustainable and environmentally responsible method of producing high-nutrient food. To maximize efficiency, indoor growers need a team of experts and a trusted design-build partner who understands the technicalities of building a controlled environment and can construct a facility that will bring the speed to market that the CEA industry requires.

Cannabis Cultivation

We have extensive experience in designing and building large-scale indoor cannabis cultivation facilities and have worked with many of the nation’s largest multi-state operators. This experience gives us a deep understanding of the specific building needs as well as the difficulties that arise when constructing these types of facilities. Our team includes specialists with extensive experience in the cannabis industry who collaborate with our internal engineering and commissioning experts to ensure that all projects are completed efficiently and within budget. Additionally, we stay current on all relevant industry regulations and standards to ensure that our facilities are compliant and safe for all those who use them. With this knowledge and experience, we take pride in our ability to deliver high-quality, efficient, and sustainable cultivation facilities that meet our client’s needs at the fastest speed to market.
