IMSW has assisted in a variety of capacities to launch some of the largest industrial developments across the U.S.  This includes rail-served industrial parks, air cargo airports, and intermodal industrial parks.  (To learn more about these projects click here.)  This segment of IMSW’s consulting practice involves providing our clients with a variety of services depending on the type, timing, specifications and location of the project.  Services under this capability include, but are not limited to:

  • Feasibility Analyses

Value Propositions are tangible, scalable metrics which identify with your potential customer and converts those metrics into dollars per square foot, which makes the site selection process much easier.  Having IMSW involved at the beginning adds value to the entire process, as we can provide guidance and strategic solutions to protect your investment.

The objective in marketing any airpark or commerce park is to identify significant economic differentiation, value that differentiation and market it to the correct audience. IMSW determines those elements which distinguish the location from others and identifies the competitive advantages. A matching process is conducted, comparing the advantages identified with the needs of various industries.  From this best use analysis and value proposition, a defined strategy can be developed targeted at more synergistic leads than only a simple listing will offer.  Call our references in this space to see how we can help!

Industrial Park Projects

  • Rail-Served Industrial Parks are created by making sure the Railroad is on board, the development team’s expectations are realistic and the demand is there.  IMSW manages all of these key elements of successful development.  We have been successful for over 40 years with all of the Class 1 Railroads in this segment of our core competencies.
  • Air Cargo, thanks to e-commerce is making a resurgence.  IMSW is the leading consulting firm, teaming up with well-known engineers and planners, in bringing real-time solutions, value propositions and new cargo to every airport we have worked with.
  • Intermodal Industrial Parks are IMSW’s best success story to date.  Centerpoint Properties, Hillwood/Alliance, and South Dallas, are all projects held up as the best practices locations for Intermodal Industrial Parks.  IMSW has worked on all three of these, and are continually asked back for our evaluation, value proposition development and marketing skills to assist these sites.   We are the premier company in this space when a community wants to evaluate whether or not to push forward with an Intermodal Industrial Park, and we can tell the owner the reason why.
