The architects of cultivation projects

Worldwide specialist in greenhouse & indoor farming projects

Our focus is to make a greenhouse & indoor farming project as economic and efficient as possible. We do this in a way that the investment costs within the location and the requirements are as low as possible. We can be your partner to make a success of your project involving the legal cultivation of  (medicinal) cannabis.

Design & feasibility

High-tech horticulture is a capital-intensive way to grow crops. Project planning starts with a solid design accompanied by realistic estimates of investment and operational costs.

  • Conceptual design
    We can make a conceptual design for greenhouses with installations suited for the cultivation of your crop.
  • Energy concepts/sustainability
    Cost for use of energy usually are one of the major components in total OPEX. VEK compares different options and has an eye for consequences (e.g. good source of CO2)
  • Capex & Opex
    Based on design we can estimate investment costs (CAPEX) and make calculations on the operational / production costs (OPEX).
  • Business plan
    A VEK business plan is always based on established feasibility and a design tailored to your requirements in your environment.

Turnkey projects

Horticultural turnkey projects require an accurate approach to ensure an efficient and smooth process. As a specialist VEK knows exactly what to do, what’s needed and what can be expected.

The main question to ask yourself is ‘What kind of cultivation facility do you need to grow (medical) cannabis?’. The purpose is finding the best solution and creating an optimum cultivation facility for your specific requirements. VEK strives to deliver a project that produces 100% quality products against the lowest costs. A cultivation facility is an investment in absolute control over your crops, which is ideally suited to the cultivation of both medicinal and (legal) recreational cannabis.

Our 10-step approach

  1. In case of a new project: we can assist you on conceptual project design for your project idea.
  2. This design is the base for the investment estimate (=CapEx).
  3. Together with things like a crop plan and energy plan, the total operational costs (OpEx) can estimated.
  4. These figures can be used in a feasibility study.
  5. After approval, technical project design can be upgraded to make tender specifications
  6. Potential suppliers/builders/contractors can make their bids and we can compare and evaluate these.
  7. Next step is contracting…
  8. …followed by building. During building we can act as project manager or on-site-supervisor.
  9. For formal completion we can check the total project to see if everybody has delivered what was contracted.
  10. Education/teaching of staff we can arrange with some Dutch partners in this field.

Post-harvest

In addition to cultivation, you also have to deal with processing, handling and packaging of the product. We can assist you in making the right choices in the field of hygiene, rooting, logistics, functionality etc.
