It’s where we live, where we work, where we play.
We are tied to places by physicality, orientation or imperative. We are defined by our geographic location. The economics of geography is as vast as the global vista itself.

DCG Corplan Consulting LLC provides strategic guidance on location and development issues that are indelibly tied to economic geography.

Our value lies in being able to navigate the complex relationship between the private and public sectors and in helping our clients to be able to capitalize on, or alternatively, to promote the unique characteristics of individual places.

We invite you to review our Practice Areas and Case Studies to find a skill set suitable for your project requirements.
