Holyoke, MA – Jewett Construction, a family-owned design-build and construction management firm based in Raymond, N.H., has been selected by Solurge, Inc. to renovate its newly acquired facility on Beaulieu Street in Holyoke, Mass.

Designed by Keenan + Kenny Architects, the 27,000sf former warehouse building will be transformed into a full-service cannabis cultivation, processing, storage, dispatch, and retail facility by early 2020.

A phased occupancy will have Solurge operating all but its retail functions by fall 2019. Jewett Construction has been working closely with the team throughout the preconstruction stage to ensure that all climate, security, and processing equipment is coordinated between teams and value-engineered to meet the owner’s budget.

The facility will include a commercial-grade viewing kitchen and other customer-centric amenities with a focus on community.

“This is truly an exciting project for Jewett Construction,” said Greg Stewart, VP of Jewett Construction. “While this facility is in a former warehouse building, the Solurge, Inc. project has more similarities with the laboratory and cold storage facilities that we’ve built in the past due to the highly technical nature of the cannabis cultivation process. The processes and procedures that we have in place allow Jewett Construction to bring our client’s vision to life quickly, which is ideal in the cannabis and controlled-environment agriculture industry.”
