Frequently Asked Questions About Commercial Grow Room Setup & Buildings

How long does it take to build a Starrco grow room facility?

Starrco’s commercial grow room setups are built and installed 75 percent faster than conventional construction methods.

Each building is manufactured at our St. Louis, MO factory using accelerated production processes. The finished parts of the modular grow room are shipped to your facility for installation.

It usually takes a crew of two installers around half a day to install an average 12-foot square room. Whatever the complexity and size of your building, we have consistently seen Starrco buildings completed in 25 percent of the time it would take to build a similar structure using conventional methods.

Many Starrco customers take strategic advantage of the ability to quickly and easily expand their grow facility. This helps them react rapidly to new opportunities but still manage their costs.

What is the difference between cleanrooms and grow rooms?

Our marijuana grow rooms, and the cleanrooms we have been building for the pharmaceutical and electronics industries for decades, have many similarities.

Below are some of the features we regularly incorporate into cleanrooms and commercial grow room setups:

  • Connections to plumbing and other services.
  • Durable, airtight fit and finish.
  • Non-shedding wall, ceiling, and plenum surfaces.
  • Tight joints that preserve the controlled environment.
  • Interior surfaces that can withstand sanitizing and sterilizing processes.
  • Suspended ceiling grid systems designed to support essential equipment such as grow lights and ventilation hardware.
  • Power outlets where you need them. Cables are run through the raceways built into every aluminum stud. Data outlets for security systems are easy to add.
  • Factory-framed openings for air devices, pass-through cabinets, and product conveying.
  • A variety of windows, including fixed windows with quarter-inch tempered safety glass and aluminum frames.

Can ventilation systems be installed in Starrco grow rooms?

Starrco integrates ventilation infrastructure into the walls and ceilings of its cannabis warehouses to accommodate the air-handling equipment needed to remove heat, control humidity, and prevent contamination from pests and mold.

We can design your grow room to meet your air-handling specifications. Typical options for our commercial grow room setups include:

  • A ceiling grid system strong enough to support fan-powered filtration units.
  • Reinforcement mechanisms to support wall-hung, oscillating fans.
  • Wall-mounted air return grills.
  • Sealed plenums.
  • Air-chase walls.

Can I have power where I need it in a Starrco Grow Room?

Whether it is for your HVAC, office equipment, security cameras, or other appliances, we can place electrical outlets wherever you need them.

Electrical cables are routed through raceways in the building’s aluminum stud system. Our modular electrical system is pre-engineered to snap together for speed and flexibility. It is color-coded for safety.

Outlets for any appliances that pull a lot of power should be on separate circuits.

All electrical materials supplied by Starrco are UL listed and meet NEC requirements.
