Solutions that accelerate logistics project delivery

February 18, 2022

Demand for distribution centers, fulfillment centers, warehouses (including cold storage), intermodal, and other logistics facilities, is growing at an unprecedented rate across the U.S. The fast pace growth requires teams capable of providing quick turnaround solutions and meeting deadlines, while also providing the resources and flexibility to respond to demanding requirements. Timeframes for site selection, design, and construction have sped up, and partnering with the right professional engineering consultant early is key.

Need for Speed

It’s increasingly common for developers to be faced with compressed and/or unrealistic due diligence periods. And, deadline extensions for deliverables? Forget it.

Developers are not only competing with one another but are often faced with unfavorable market and labor conditions that make completing due diligence difficult for those without the available professional expertise and resources.

So how do you swiftly assess a site’s development, construction, and deal risk before committing significant capital into a potential project site?

Terracon can help, starting early in the site selection process. Our teams bring years of expertise to provide critical information quickly to create a competitive advantage during site selection and early land acquisition discussions.
