TORONTO and EDMONTON, July 16, 2018 /CNW/ – High Hampton Holdings Corp. (CSE: HC) (“High Hampton”) and Aurora Cannabis Inc. (“Aurora”) (TSX: ACB) (OTCQB: ACBFF) (Frankfurt: 21P; WKN: A1C4WM) are pleased to announce that High Hampton has engaged with globally leading hybrid greenhouse engineering and design consultancy Aurora Larssen Projects Inc. (“ALPS”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Aurora, for the design of its cannabis cultivation facility at CoachellaGro, near Palm Springs, California. With the recently awarded Conditional Use Permit (CUP) (see High Hampton press releases from May 3 and June 7, 2018), High Hampton now enters an active construction phase at CoachellaGro, and ALPS will advise the Company on aspects of design, engineering and the construction of its facilities.

Larssen Ltd (“Larssen”), now ALPS, was acquired by Aurora as a dedicated hybrid greenhouse design and consulting arm for its global operations. Led by renowned engineer Thomas Larssen, ALPS has set the industry standard in high-tech, automated, environmentally controlled cultivation facilities for over 30 years and excels in the successful implementation of cutting-edge automation features, and proprietary design characteristics that generate exceptional yields, as well as the use of advanced energy efficient materials and technologies. Larssen has been involved with over 1,000 projects around the globe, including Aurora Sky, a high-technology, 800,000 square feet, 100,000 kg per annum, low production cost hybrid facility, and is currently engaged with over 15 cannabis industry clients globally, including 5 Canadian licensed producers.

David E. Argudo, CEO/Director of High Hampton, commented, “As we near the start of construction in Coachella, we continue to assemble a best-in-class team for this next phase. By engaging and integrating the work of ALPS with Infrastructure Engineers Ltd and general contractor Vertical Construction Inc. we will be able to finetune our design plans ensuring the construction of highly-efficient cultivation facilities, resulting in high-quality, low-cost production. We are looking forward to working closely with ALPS and strongly believe that our operation will greatly benefit from their experience and technological advancements.”

Terry Booth, CEO of Aurora Cannabis, stated, “ALPS continues to expand its footprint as the designer of choice for highly automated, hyper-efficient, low production cost cannabis facilities around the world. The differences between a typical glass house and what will be the ALPS-designed CoachellaGro facility are numerous and significant. CoachellaGro is better described as an environmentally controlled indoor grow operation with supplemental sun.”

Thomas Larssen, President of ALPS, added, “The Coachella team are well organized and have chosen a proven, efficient design, taking advantage of the world’s most advanced cultivation technologies.  Eliminating the risk of weather, disease and pests, combined with strict environmental controls, has been proven to provide substantially higher yields and consistently high-quality product. We look forward to working with the ChoachellaGro team in developing this new project.”
