  • Zoning analysis: We provide estimated timelines and costs for site-specific zoning and permitting requirements.

For New Build Sites

  • Site analysis and selection: We provide a Site Candidate Information Package (SCIP) for new build locations, so you can easily review potential sites.
  • Build-to-suit analysis: We provide a Site Data Package (SDP) with details about approved candidate sites, including owner information, utility providers, zoning and permitting information, preliminary site evaluations, and photos.
