The Princeton Industrial Park located in Princeton, Caldwell County, Kentucky, recently was certified as a “Build-Ready” site by the Commonwealth of Kentucky. With a Build-Ready site, much of the work – other than actual construction – has already been completed. That includes having community control of the land to be developed, preparing a building pad (prepared ground/soil/environmental studies), conducting preliminary design work, including project costs and construction time frames, obtaining approved site plan permits and having necessary utility and transportation infrastructure in place. Communities that meet the minimum standards for each requirement of the Build-Ready program will drastically reduce the time it takes a company to select a site, construct a new building and begin operations. By expediting this timeline and putting companies in operation faster, communities will make their sites more attractive to companies and site selectors. MSE was responsible for the design of the 200,000 SF building pad and provided assistance in obtaining certification for the park.Princeton Building Pad
