SEA CON Business Relocation Services

Business Relocation Feasibility Studies

The Uniform Relocation Act also allows business owners to be eligible for feasibility studies as they consider options for relocating their operations. As a long-time developer and contractor, SEA CON has conducted hundreds of feasibility studies over the course of its history.

The purpose of a feasibility study is to determine if a potential new location will work for the business owner.

Essentially, a good feasibility study will provide answers to the following questions that come up during a business relocation.
