Certified Sites

Iowa Economic Development Authority Certified SitesCompanies looking to build new facilities are searching for sites that are not only suitable for development but are also relatively “risk-free.” Iowa’s Certified Sites can fill the demand for project-ready industrial sites, making the decision to locate in Iowa an easy one.

Iowa’s certified site program, designed and implemented by the nationally recognized site selection firm McCallum Sweeney Consulting (MSC), parallels a typical site location process. Once credentialed, an Iowa Certified Site has relevant site-related data and documentation accumulated and is designated as “development-ready”.

IEDA is proud to feature below the first four Iowa Certified Sites, designated in April 2014. Many other Iowa sites are currently working towards future certification.
