Where We Grow
Dedicated to growing only the highest quality cannabis by using natural processes.
Boundary Bay’s greenhouse complex in the area of Delta, British Columbia currently utilizes approximately 130,000 square feet of space to grow cannabis. However, the complex has a total capacity of 2.2 million square feet, thereby giving it the potential to become one of the largest cannabis growing facilities in Canada. Located within a 30-minute drive from Vancouver, the greenhouse is set amidst spectacular mountain and oceanfront views.
The retrofitted facilities integrate industry-leading cultivation infrastructure and natural production practices. CO2 emissions are captured and repurposed to benefit plants and a proprietary, energy-efficient, air exchange system and other advanced infrastructure controls temperature and humidity levels. Further, an ebb-and-flow watering system enhances the recapture of irrigation as well as water treatment. Energy conservation is also maximized through a multi-stage lighting system that complements the natural heat from the sun, Lastly, a 1.5-million-gallon hot water storage tank system intelligently redistributes water at off-peak hours.
Natural processes are integrated into our approach to cannabis production and harvesting.
The Boundary Bay greenhouse complex is equipped with industry-leading cultivation infrastructure:
- Replacement value estimated at $190 million
- Fully integrated on-site natural gas-powered power plant
- Ample heat and electricity production that repurposes carbon dioxide emissions in support of better plant health
- Proprietary energy efficient air exchange technology
- Advanced climate and humidity control infrastructure
- Ebb-and-flow watering systems to enhance complete irrigation recapture and water treatment
- 5-million-gallon hot water storage tank configuration that: stores energy produced during the day, redistributes water during non-peak hours, increases operational efficiencies and reduces associated energy costs
- Multistage supplemental lighting that complements natural sunlight to optimize illumination equilibrium
