    DDC is celebrating twenty years of building a strong, sustainable New York City. Begun in 1996 as a way for the City to efficiently manage the design and construction of most public buildings and infrastructure, our agency has grown into a worldwide leader in design and construction management. It’s a milestone we are privileged to achieve, and we look forward to more years of service.

    The Department of Design and Construction has completed its first home elevation project in Staten Island. We have helped deliver a check or started construction on 74% of homes, as part of the City's Build it Back program. “It’s unbelievable to be back in the house,” said Ms. Thornton-Mannix, a lifelong Staten Islander. "The process was very clear, went smoothly and didn’t take very long at all."
