Built-To-Suit and Design Build Projects

Not all organizations have real estate needs that can be met by existing properties. In these cases, buildings constructed to address specific tenant requirements can offer the best alternative. Built-to-suit/design build premises may be either owned or leased.

However, before embarking upon a built-to-suit project, a multitude of factors should be considered. These include legal, fiscal and financial matters, as well as issues concerning everything from design and construction to scheduling and municipal approvals. Mistakes can be costly and severely hinder a company's operations.
