Marvel Architects among firms chosen to participate in the DDC’s Design and Construction Excellent 2.0 program

Oct 18, 2016

“Today the New York City Department of Design and Construction (DDC) announced the latest round of local firms pre-qualified to design public projects in the five boroughs.

Through the Design and Construction Excellence 2.0 Program, the 26 firms will have exclusive access to respond to Requests for Proposals (RFPs) through 2019 for projects with an estimated cost of $50 million or less. The program, founded in 2005, is designed to reduce the time it takes for the agency to procure design services: Once selected, firms can submit “mini-proposals” for public buildings, additions and renovations, parks, and plazas that are then evaluated and selected by committee for construction.”
