This article presents a case study of a manufacturer that retained Newmark Grubb Knight Frank’s (NGKF) Global Corporate Services consulting team to find a site for a new U.S. production facility that aligns with the company’s policies on sustainability. The site selection process is described with attention to the opportunities and tradeoffs that surfaced during the study. Of special note is the rapidly changing energy industry, which evolved as due diligence was being conducted, and its impact on the final recommendations.
