TPI – NEWTON, IOWA
The largest wind blade manufacturer, TPI, carefully selected a site in Newton, Iowa, at a time when economic development was needed in Newton. Multiple incentives from various agencies were provided for the cutting edge manufacture’s development. Site development of a 317,000 square foot facility, parking for five hundred employees, product storage and transport logistics required top notch engineering and planning services. Review of TPI’s worldwide sites was a pre-requisite of site planning. The inner workings of each individual site enabled precise design of the future Newton site and led to revised operations and altered layouts of existing sites. The 33 acre site development amounted to $112,000,000 in construction costs.
