Wareham, MA According to Acella Construction Corp., T. Bear Inc. (TBI) has selected Acella’s cannabis construction team to build its new facility. The project is expected to start this spring and is anticipated to be completed within 11 weeks.
This 8,000 s/f facility, which is located on the Cranberry Highway, will include an extraction lab, warehouse, and manufacturing facility, and will also house TBI’s product development team.
