Out of Site: Reimagining the Site Selection & Evaluation Process - Gresham, Smith and Partners
Each organization has its own set of priorities used for site selection and evaluation purposes. Most companies and government entities adhere to a stringent process that first includes the definition of such criteria and the evaluation of regions, counties and communities for the most suitable area. Once the general location is determined, these organizations usually work with real estate developers who scout out suitable sites that are on the market (or that are at least rumored to be available for the right price). From there, they evaluate their options, short-list a few, then ultimately decide on the site that best matches their wish list.
