    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."

    The Public Safety Answering Center II (PSAC II) is a 911 call and dispatch center built in the Bronx. It provides parallel operation to the existing PSAC I in downtown Brooklyn, strengthening our city's ability to handle emergencies. With a tough exterior that can withstand disaster, highly sustainable features in the interior will provide healthy air quality and soothe hard-working dispatchers.
