Roche Constructors completed two facilities for Vantage Hemp at Highpointe Business Park in Greeley, Colorado. Both buildings extract hemp in various stages. Vantage Hemp is a producer of CBD oil, isolate, and distillate. The project was completed under four separate contracts — one contract for each core and shell and a separate contract for each tenant finish.Light Industrial
The 34,897-square-foot CO2 extraction building is constructed on a load-bearing spread footing foundation system with site-cast concrete tilt-up wall panels. The core and shell scope of work included wet fire sprinkling, rough electrical, mechanical, and plumbing rough-in.
The tenant finish scope of work included the build-out of office space, a break room, restrooms, lab space, a decarboxylation room, and a large storage and racking space. An ESFR fire suppression system was required at the racking equipment, and a CO2 gas detection system was also installed to ensure the safety of the building.
The building is used in the initial steps of extracting hemp before it is sent to the adjacent facility for further extraction.
