Site Selection & Location Strategy
Whether a company is looking to expand existing, add new, or consolidate existing facilities, our site selection and location strategy team can help streamline efforts and facilitate sound business decisions to maximize the overall return on capital. We are driven by helping companies across various industries find the right location.
We begin by understanding a company’s needs and preferences to begin our market identification process. During this phase we, compare markets based on supply chain needs, labor, overall tax burden, potential federal, state and local incentives, utility cost and real estate cost.
Once potential markets are identified, we proceed to site identification. Within each market, we will identify and evaluate any potential sites or buildings that meet the needs of the company. Physical, legal and financial considerations are all evaluated to determine the viability of a site. A comparison of the sites identified across markets and all the different variables involved are then compiled to help the company make a decision.
Through this tailored approach that’s specific to a company’s needs, we are able to optimize their facility location(s).
