About NYC Department of Design and Construction

The Department of Design and Construction (DDC) serves as the City's primary capital construction project manager. We build many of the civic facilities New Yorkers use every day. We provide communities with new or renovated structures such as firehouses, libraries, police precincts, courthouses, senior centers and more. To successfully manage our portfolio, we collaborate with other City agencies, as well as with emerging and world-renowned architects and consultants. Our work doesn’t stop at buildings - we also design and improve vital infrastructure. Our staff delivers roadway, sewer, and water main construction projects in all five boroughs. We provide sidewalks, street reconstruction, water mains, sewers, and pedestrian ramps - quality infrastructure that is essential for a healthy, resilient city. As our city grows, so does DDC. The Department of Design and Construction is a great place to work - cultivating intellectual inspiration, professional development, and creativity.

Summer intern

June 2018 - August 2018 Long Island City, NY
“This paid position was part of the college summer program that hosts both undergrad and grad students. Occasional events or program meetings allow everyone to come together to share their current experiences in DDC and foster connections with one another. DDC is a very diverse workplace and my department always made me feel welcomed. They gave me the opportunity to attend numerous meetings and see first hand the process of design research, proposals and so much more.”
