Systems Design and Building Design Solutions Provide Fully Integrated Building Efficiency and Optimization

LAFAYETTE, Colo. – March 13, 2019/AxisWire/ urban-gro, a leading cultivation systems integrator and agricultural technology company for commercial cannabis cultivators, announces the acquisition of Denver-based Impact Engineering Inc., a full-service mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (“MEP”) design and engineering company that has operated in the cannabis industry for the last four years as “Grow2Guys.”

By combining strengths, urban-gro and Grow2Guys will deliver value to investors and commercial cultivators through a tightly integrated design and engineering focus on high-performance cultivation facilities. The acquisition allows urban-gro to engage stakeholders earlier in the design process and offer the market a united team highly experienced in the end-to-end design and delivery of optimized cultivation and building systems.

“Investors and commercial cultivators tell us that they value our coordinated efforts,” says urban-gro CEO Brad Nattrass. “By combining urban-gro’s smart design and technology with Grow2Guys’s experience in building engineering solutions, we are strengthening our delivery of high-performance cultivation facilities.”

“Having provided mechanical engineering solutions for over 300 cultivation facilities, we are proud to combine our expertise with urban-gro’s agricultural solutions to ensure cultivators’ systems needs are harmonized with the building’s mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. This joining of forces is a testament to the maturation and legitimization of the cannabis industry,” says Brian Zimmerman. President and founder of Grow2Guys. “We look forward to providing investors and commercial cultivators with a holistic approach to the design of both cultivation and building systems.”

While urban-gro has acquired Grow2Guys for coordinated building and cultivations systems design, the Company will continue to work with and develop new relationships and collaborate with regional MEP engineering firms across North America. Grow2Guys will not compete directly with other MEP firms with which urban-gro has a relationship.
