Demystifying the complex process of MEP retrofitting for CEA

One of Surna Cultivation Technologies' core offerings is its HVAC equipment, which is designed to minimize energy consumption while providing optimal growing conditions for plants. In addition to HVAC equipment, Surna also offers MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) engineering services to help growers plan and execute their indoor cannabis cultivation projects.

Surna has published content about how MEP retrofitting can be used in Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA). The MEP Retrofitting process for Controlled Environment Agriculture is complex and Surna's goal is to demystify the process and provide readers with clear, concise information.

The experts at Surna highlighted, "Retrofitting means to take something that exists and to renovate or upgrade it for a new application or a new standard of functionality. For controlled environment agriculture (CEA), this implies taking an existing building, and upgrading its mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) system to be suitable for indoor farming."

"Growing plants indoors requires lighting, HVAC equipment, and other systems that consume electricity. The process of supplying light and watering plants creates a warm and humid climate that must be carefully managed. This combination of requirements makes MEP engineering for indoor ag incredibly unique."
