Im in Michigan (well will be soon) I plan to have a rather large mining set up. Now my problem I will have is this. I dont know how to go about the power companies as well as the physical buildings I will require. Should I buy a building and have it renovated to withstand the extreme amount of power I will have coming in? Or should I just buy some land and make it work? Multiple stations around a general area to spread out the consumption?

 As I have calculated it, it should be around 6000$ per day, in electricity. Like I said this is a issue im not sure if anyone has come across yet. Huh

Any help will be appreciated.
P.S. I will require some help with the set up (I could do it myself but that would take way too long) and maybe the maintaining. If you're in the Michigan area let me know. I plan to fly a few people out as well.

Sounds ambitious. With a need for that much power, the commercial power rate you can get on the property you choose is VERY important. For example, large companies will choose certain states to locate data centers in based on the local power cost. The electricity rate you can get is far more important (IMO) than if the building already has enough capacity (although upgrading the electric service can be expensive and should be taken into consideration).
