How the legalization of Cannabis is driving innovation in engineering, construction and facility automation in Canada. The demand for high quality cannabis is pushing the cannabis industry to require much more from their facilities. Owners need facilities to be developed in a fraction of the time and with lower cost neither of which can be achieved with traditional construction methods. This is driving innovation like automated construction, virtual and augmented reality and building automation that traditional constructors were not open to. This session discusses the technologies that are being advanced, the processes that those are driving and how this could position Canada well ahead of the US Construction industry.
