What is Build to Suit?

Build to Suit, or BTS, is an approach to logistics real estate development where Prologis manages the entire process of delivering a facility that is tailored to a customer’s specific needs.

BTS may be the best option for those who have unique or complex needs for a facility but want to ensure that they are getting the best services and capabilities that Prologis can offer. Prologis Build to Suit Development services are unique in that they provide a streamlined process for customer-led development projects that draws upon the breadth and depth of our experience in logistics real estate.

Unrivaled development capabilities

We manage the full build-to-suit life cycle: site selection, land acquisition, facility specifications, permitting, construction and ownership.

For customers who want Prologis to manage their build-to-suit but prefer to own their own facilities post-delivery, we also offer a robust development services program.

From planning through execution

We take full responsibility for securing planning permission for each build-to-suit we deliver. We continually monitor the planning status of each site, working with local stakeholders and resolving any potential problems that might arise.

Thanks to our long-standing relationships with the industry’s leading architects, consultants and contractors, we can quickly assemble a team of professionals whose talents and expertise are best suited to any project. This access has enabled Prologis to deliver complex build-to-suits on or ahead of schedule.

Efficient buildings, built to last

We consistently deliver high-quality buildings that not only meet our customer’s timing and operational needs, but also help reduce occupational costs and the building’s carbon footprint.

Prologis works with customers to deliver build-to-suits that are sustainably designed and constructed to meet or exceed recognized certification standards where such standards are defined. Several Prologis build-to-suits have been recognized based on the strength of their design and sustainability features.
