Certified Sites

DESIGNATING DEVELOPMENT-READY SITES

Companies looking to build new facilities are searching for sites that are suitable for development and relatively risk free. Certified sites fill the demand for project-ready industrial sites - making the decision to locate in Iowa easy.

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