LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–MCTIGUE, a Conscious Architecture, Design and Planning firm, and Corbis, an International Project Management Corporation, have designed and planned a major cannabis facility in Los Angeles that enhances community, improves the environment and creates job opportunities.
Andrew Pedrick, AIA, Founding Principal of MCTIGUE, said, “MCTIGUE designs with a conscious approach to making place for people and planet. This sophisticated industrial complex with 5 buildings (3 existing and 2 new) required extensive improvements, multiple phases and a host of permits, all based on licensing diagrams provided by MCTIGUE in collaboration with the Client.
Francesca Romanutti, of Corbis, said, “When we approached our strategic collaboration, Andrew’s main concern was to be able to focus on his craft and clients, whilst counting on a solid technical team that can pick up his thoughts and turn them into a reliable BIM model and consistent working drawings to hit the job site with confidence.”
“The Technical challenge here was to combine the remodeling and improving of existing buildings, with the new infrastructure needed for a large, multi-functional grow facility, that requires intense lighting, irrigation and HVAC systems,” said Pedrick. “Assembling the best team to do the job is paramount, as is the protocol to use the best communication scheme.”
MCTIGUE’s preference was to stay nimble, agile and provide quick feedback. “Andrew advocated an alliance that had to be open, engaged, and responsive: including Corbis in clients’ and consultant’s meetings, engaging in all project communications, and sharing project vision and goals to stay aware of all matters at all times. This brought the highest level of engagement in all team members,” said Romanutti
