Due diligence and market intelligence are critical factors in paving the way for the successful delivery of any new development project, even more so for mission critical facilities like data centers.

At CRSC, we understand the approach required to receive approval from the jurisdiction and its stakeholders is extremely important. Favorable go to market schedule advantages can be achieved by moving expeditiously through the completion of these approvals and to ensure your business plan is on or ahead of target.

With the global increase in data demands, data centers are rapidly being deployed in many new and non-traditional markets, markets without special zoning rules or with contradictory requirements in existing zoning classes.



Key elements of our planning and permitting approach are:

  • Leading the communication and education of jurisdiction stakeholders on both the development and operational aspects of a project.
  • Reviewing and positioning data center specific criteria into non-data center zoning classes with the aim of reducing the likelihood of time-consuming municipal reviews. Commonly encountered hurdles are the minimum parking space metrics or regulatory reviews related to square footage ratios which often trigger formal site plan approval delays.
  • Understanding and navigating any sustainability or environmental impact assessment (EIA) requirements from storm water, nature corridors, sound, emissions, and hazardous material assessments.
  • Successful community benefit positioning.
