In collaboration with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Pecan Street is developing and implementing smart grid and clean energy technologies and business models. Mr. Dietrich was Project Manager for Catellus Development Group, where he was responsible for all aspects of construction-related activities concerning the public-private joint redevelopment of the 711-acre former Robert Mueller Municipal Airport (RMMA) in Austin, Texas. This included selecting and leading teams of scientists, engineers, and other consultants and contractors to coordinate planning, remediation, design, and installation of horizontal and vertical infrastructure as well as working with neighboring communities and stakeholders to ensure good relationships. Ian developed and submitted the $219 million infrastructure budget to the City of Austin and assisted in the development and approval of ongoing changes to both the Zoning Ordinance and the Master Development Agreement between Catellus and the City.
