How to win high profile public projects in NYC

It’s the goal of many architects to land a high profile project in a world-class city. Whilst one may presume that opportunities like this exist only for large and established firms, think again. New York City’s Department of Design and Construction (DDC), which builds many of the civic projects in the city and manages a portfolio valued at $6bn, has a world class procurement process that is fair, easy, and open to all architects, including international firms, emerging architects, and firms as large as 500 and as small as 1.

As public agencies go, the DDC’s track record for bringing about high quality buildings in the public realm is perhaps second to none, which is why we were eager to sit down and chat with Commissioner David Burney, the architect who heads the DDC, about how his department procures design services, what opportunities there are for architects there, and how to one gets started.
