Viridis Laboratories

Straights Facilities Expansion and Renovation

Viridis Laboratories expanded its operations and renovated its current facility to allow for increased analytical capabilities, including cannabis and infused food products testing.

Labs and support space within the building include an analytical lab, material accessioning, inspection, secured storage, homogenization lab, microbiology lab, heavy materials prep, instrument room and heavy metals instrument room.

Because of the sensitive nature of the testing, security in and around the building is of the utmost importance. Visitors are at a minimum, but guests can view the facility and processes at an tour path and observation deck.

The adaptable building design provides an inviting and collaborative work environment today and accommodate needs and technology tomorrow. Equally important is creating an environment that instills confidence in future customers from the industry.

HERA created test layouts, environmental design criteria and schematic design scenarios to provide a framework and basis for moving forward with decisions and further design development.

Viridis Laboratories ensures the health and safety within the cannabis industry by testing cannabis products for potency and purity, and reports results of this testing to consumers, manufacturers and regulatory agencies.
