5 Costs to Consider When Setting Up a Modular Grow Room 

Grow rooms, also known as grow tents, make growing and cultivating plants possible indoors. This type of agriculture warehouse is especially popular in the cannabis industry, though it is suitable for producing all kinds of flowers, fruits and vegetables.

A grow room can easily adapt to your needs with features ranging from humidity to climate control to ensure the crops have the ideal growing environment. No matter the climate or season, grow rooms make it possible to cultivate plants year-round and achieve the best results possible.

Modular grow rooms are cost-effective solutions for cultivating cannabis and other plants indoors in a controlled environment. While growing plants indoors provides many benefits, several factors can impact the overall cost of building and using a modular grow room.

Here are five costs to consider when purchasing a modular grow room:

1. The Size of Your Room

Depending on the types of plants and the quantity you plan to grow and cultivate, you’ll need a specific size of grow room to accommodate your needs. The size and layout of your room will impact the amount of materials and labor required to construct it.

2. Types of Materials Used

Modular growing rooms can be constructed from various materials, including insulated metal panels, PVC panels and vinyl tiles. The price varies depending on the types of materials you choose and how much you need to construct the room. Additional features will also contribute to the finished price. Overall, modular grow rooms are more cost-effective than traditionally constructed rooms.

3. How You’ll Create a Sealed Environment 

Regardless of what you plan to grow, ensure you create a well-sealed environment. Gaps within the modular walls allow anything from heat to potential contaminants to enter the space. These changes could then impact the growing environment, damaging your plants. The steps you take to verify that the space is well-sealed could affect the finished cost.

4. Temperature and Humidity Control Systems 

To ensure your plants can grow healthy and thrive, you’ll need an adequate temperature and humidity control system. These elements will affect the cost of building a modular growing room, from installing air conditioning units or intake fans to using humidifiers and dehumidifiers as needed.

5. Obtaining Permits and Scheduling Inspections 

Depending on where you’ll build your modular growing room and how big it will be, you’ll have to obtain the required permits and schedule inspections. These costs can vary by project. Not complying with these requirements could lead to fines, impacting the project’s cost.
