Understanding Your Needs

We begin each project by understanding your specific needs so we can bring your vision to life, while maintaining cannabis compliance.

Sustainability and Green Building

We’re committed to reducing and eliminating our projects’ carbon footprint with a Three-Step Process.

Nature's Care Co.

Our cannabis expertise encompasses retail dispensaries, MIP kitchens, cultivation/processing facilities, extraction rooms, greenhouses, and labs. Harbour recently completed Phase I of II for Nature’s Care Company (NCC) in Chicago’s Downtown Loop. NCC is the first adult-use cannabis dispensary in Chicago and the first cannabis dispensary built in the Loop. Our team was instrumental in this project’s success by assisting in:

  • The facilitation in the department of building permitting process, including the commission on Chicago Landmarks
  • The acquisition of Chicago Department of Transportation street, alley, and temporary drive permits
  • Ensuring guidelines were met per the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulations to attain a cannabis dispensary license
  • Client support during the Chicago zoning board of appeals and cannabis special use permitting
  • Public relations with the local West Loop community organizations
  • Developing and managing an expedited phased construction schedule to ensure license acquisition per dispensary proximity guidelines
  • Consultation and installation of high-tech security systems with deterrence measures

“Acreage Holdings has completed many projects throughout the country. As we know, Chicago is one of the most challenging locations, and we chose to partner with Harbour Contractors to ensure our cannabis construction project was done right the first time.”
