Foreign Direct Investment Project Delivery

Early alignment with a trusted nationally focused and experienced, design-build company is essential for international companies looking to minimize their risk and maximize their return on their U.S. investment.

International businesses must consider permitting, business dynamics and constructability issues, while also navigating the intricacies of national, state, and local locations for infrastructure, workforce, utilities, and incentives.

A focus on these key strategies will show value before a site is even selected.
