GTP completes site certification process
Posted May 03, 2012

The North Carolina Global TransPark (GTP) has successfully completed the rigorous pre-qualification process to become a North Carolina Certified Site. A total of 877 acres at the GTP have been certified as "shovel-ready" as part of the lengthy certification process which included land surveys, geotechnical studies, Phase 1 environmental analysis, wetlands mitigation planning, and historic preservation planning among its requirements. Administered by the North Carolina Department of Commerce, the N.C. Certified Sites Program is one of the most comprehensive site readiness programs in the nation.

"A primary advantage of the Global TransPark is the availability of site for immediate development," said GTP president Jim Fain. "The shovel-ready certification provides assurances to companies locating here that the necessary infrastructure and due diligence required to construct facilities is already complete."

Certified parcels at the GTP range in size from five acres to over 300 acres, with potential uses including aeronautical activities, manufacturing, warehousing, and research and training, among others.
