​I&D works with our partners to build a solid foundation for each project. Our experience allows us to identify obstacles early to mitigate risk, increase profits, and complete each project in an expeditious manner. I&D acts as the owner’s representative to partner with you from the beginning stages of conceptual design costing, evaluation, market analyses, site acquisition, leasing, financing, entity administration and partner relationships, entitlements, dry utility, permitting, project and construction management services and final disposition.  We work with our clients to strategically plan and implement business objectives while maintaining their organizations' vision and mission statement.

I&D understands that a successful project is not as simple as filling in the blanks of a due diligence report.  A truly successful project is based on understanding the market and asking the right questions to uncover region-specific development challenges, fees, and processes.  Our success stems from understanding how to integrate our clients' project goals with the local development process, including:

  • Project Management
  • Efficient site plan designing
  • Collaborating with client’s leasing personnel on project timelines and deliverables
  • Building relationships within the local government officials and agencies
  • Interfacing with the community and neighborhood outreach
  • Telecommunications-Broadcast Services
  • Title/Easement Analysis
  • Facilitation and management of consultant and contractor selection  
  • Construction management

I&D prepares the entitlement packages and represents our clients at public hearings on matters pertaining to:

  • City Planning
  • Community plan amendments
  • Zone changes
  • Variances
  • Conditional Use Permits
  • Tract and parcel maps
  • Environmental Impact Reports
  • Other administrative and discretionary actions


“I&D Consulting has been extremely successful in helping us navigate the entitlement and permitting process for portions of our California Hydrogen Network. Our projects are under stringent deadlines and involve new technology which requires extensive education with AHJs. Thanks to Kristi and her team’s proactive, efficient, and well-organized approach they have helped us consistently complete and deliver successful projects!”
