Our Development Consulting Services

Site Selection: If your business is looking to relocate or expand, BW&A can help you find the best new location to meet your needs. We will evaluate the needs and “wish list” of your organization and provide a comprehensive analysis of all potential locations. Once the “wish list” is developed, our firm will solicit interest from relevant entities that may have sites that meet our clients needs.  BW&A will help clients evaluate each prospective site and negotiate financing incentives that may be available to attract new businesses to these localities. Whether you are looking for assistance on a local, regional or national basis, we can help. Past site location clients of BW&A included Fortune 500 companies such as Johnson & Johnson and Advance Auto Parts.
