Trulieve is Florida’s first and largest medical marijuana producer already serving over 100,000 patients in their first two years of operation. With ever-growing demand in this new industry, they are undertaking massive expansions to their growing facilities.
The Ben Bostick site is located in Quincy, Florida, currently housing a 64,000 square foot grow house. The expansion goal is to create 120,000 square feet of additional warehouse space to facilitate the expanded demands in their growing operation.
This expansion encompasses multiple aspects of civil engineering. The largest portion of the project deals with the site design, which includes designing stormwater ponds and utility designs for water and sewer systems. The pond designs will work with the site layout and utility designs ensuring accessibility and proper grading.
Regarding the structural design, we are creating five warehouses with identical layouts using a pre-engineered metal framing technique. Each warehouse includes grow rooms, water storage tanks and chemical storage rooms, as well as washrooms for employees, which will tie into utilities off-site.
For the transportation design, we used off-site traffic data and a turn lane analysis to determine if the driveway connection to US-90 will impact overall traffic flow. After successful completion of the project, we hope that Trulieve will continue to flourish as Florida’s No. 1 medical marijuana producer and provide needed
industry to the North Florida region.
