From the pedestrian plaza in Times Square to the Far Rockaway Library, the Department of Design and Construction is building for you.

As the City's primary capital construction project manager, we build many of the civic facilities New Yorkers use every day. DDC provides communities with new or renovated structures such as firehouses, libraries, police precincts, courthouses, senior centers and more. To successfully manage this $10 billion portfolio, we collaborate with other City agencies, as well as with emerging and world-renowned architects and consultants. We strive to work with people whose experience and creativity bring efficient, innovative, and environmentally-conscious design and construction strategies to the projects we build.

Our work doesn’t stop at buildings—we also design and improve vital infrastructure.

Our staff of more than 1,300 delivers roadway, sewer and water main construction projects in all five boroughs. Over the last decade, we have completed more than 2,370 miles of sidewalk and street reconstruction, 1,325 miles of water mains, 588 miles of storm and sanitary sewers, and installed more than 42,000 pedestrian ramps. Quality infrastructure is essential for promoting a safe, healthy city.

As our city grows, so does DDC. Join us and help build a resilient, healthy city for all.
