Shogun Maitake

This project was centred around a specialized facility designed for the growth and production of maitake mushrooms, a type of gourmet mushroom found in specialty grocers and used heavily in cancer treatment research. The schedule for this project was an aggressive fast-track in order to meet the owner’s requirements. To achieve the client’s goal, michael + clark construction had to develop a phased approach to this project.

The mechanical systems involved in this project are specialized and complex due to the nature of the production requirements for the mushrooms. The building consists of structural steel framing with precast exterior cladding and the interior space is divided with insulated metal panels to create separate rooms for each stage of mushroom growth and production.
