Strategic Plan


DDC is the City’s leading construction management agency which builds infrastructure and public buildings for 29 sponsoring agencies, plus numerous non-profits that receive funding from the City. A Strategic Blueprint for Construction Excellence is DDC’s comprehensive plan to improve capital project delivery.


The Blueprint lays out four overall themes to deliver projects faster and within budget: making sure capital projects have the funds before they are initiated at DDC; improving and standardizing DDC’s internal project management controls and processes; making better use of outside resources paid for by City capital funds by more effectively managing consultants and contractors; and modernizing internal systems and information technology to allow for better project execution and tracking and to allow DDC staff to work more effectively in the field.

DDC advances the goals of the Blueprint every day. Six months after its introduction, we’ve already accomplished at least 30 steps that will make our project delivery system more efficient and effective. Read more about our progress here.
