Facility Planning Our Commitment

Facility Planning is committed to saving our clients’ money and delivering a facility that considers what the business needs today, as well as what the business will need in the future. That’s why we charge one flat rate fee, not a percentage like the rest of the industry.

Facility Planning Reduction In Cost

Our approach will result in a significant reduction in design fees and construction costs, typically averaging more than seven percent of your building cost.

Facility Planning Facility Retrofit

With hundreds of empty spec buildings across the county, we can help you evaluate the feasibility of fitting-up a shell through a detailed analysis of your options.

 
Facility Planning Expansion vs new building

Sometimes an expansion is the best answer. We will provide guidance and analysis in determining if a new building makes sense.

Facility Planning Energy Efficiency Lifecycle

We will help design your facility for efficient operations and energy efficiency going forward.
