Development Management Services
IDI’s development management services team focuses exclusively on delivering turnkey, fast-track development services. Our real estate and construction experts are among the best in the business, assuring every aspect of the project is handled with utmost integrity and professionalism.
Multimarket Program Planning
IDI’s development team works with clients to plan and schedule multimarket rollouts of facility programs. We make the best possible use of our clients’ assets and support their long-range business plans.
Coordination between designers and operational users is essential to developing reusable prototypes that keep design costs low. IDI’s development management services team is the consistent link between operational staff and designers to implement prototype modifications without high change fees.
Market Research and Site Selection
IDI real estate professionals use their in-depth knowledge and resources to find properties that meet client parameters. They develop an understanding of the land profile sought, conduct the research and present the best candidates, quickly and efficiently.
Incentives Consulting and Coordination
Government grants, tax abatement programs, foreign trade zones and free enterprise zones can be economically beneficial but difficult to navigate. IDI has built industrial facilities in 65 markets and has development offices in eight major U.S. cities, giving us a strong network of local relationships and in-depth knowledge of specific locality benefits and requirements.
Entitlement Approval Coordination and Permitting
Land entitlement and permitting are often the most unpredictable and time consuming parts of the development process. IDI’s experienced team spearheads the efforts on our clients’ behalf, following up on small details in each market and ensuring compliance to schedules and local laws.
Site Due Diligence and Review
IDI conducts feasibility analyses on program sites, presents the findings in an easy-to-understand format and makes recommendations based on the results. We stand behind our recommendations and, when necessary, seek outside opinions on issues that may have significant cost implications such as environmental and geotechnical concerns.
LEED/Sustainable Design Consulting
IDI is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council and participates in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program, which establishes guidelines for green building design, construction, operations and maintenance. Our LEED-accredited professionals recommend and implement the most up-to-date energy-efficient and planet-friendly features such as skylights to reduce artificial lighting, storm water systems for irrigation and natural habitat preservation to protect wildlife.
IDI has developed more than 500 industrial facilities, each time delivering the highest quality as cost-effectively as possible. Our construction managers are degreed professionals who understand every aspect of construction from design through delivery, and use competitive bidding and other techniques to control costs. On-site project supervision is complemented by state-of-the-art tools such as our proprietary Web-based Development Management System that gives clients and development teams real-time status updates throughout the project.
