PROJECT DESCRIPTION - Design-Build project in Prineville called Deschutes Labs, which is a new industrial hemp processing facility strategically located in Central Oregon with a phase 1 processing capacity of 15,000 Lbs per day. The lab will be licensed to produce food grade extracts and designed and operated according to GMP and ISO standards.
All processing equipment is US made and ASME certified using cold ethanol extraction. Deschutes Labs extraction will be managed and operated by industry professionals with years of extraction experience. Construction is currently underway and the facility is expected to open in October 2019 in time to produce off this years harvest. This project was fast tracked with design and construction to meet the owners needs of getting this facility opened up quickly. The design-build procurement style that the Deschutes Labs LLC ownership chose was the best way to get the project open for business in a short amount of time.
