About the Capital Projects Division

Capital Projects oversees the construction, reconstruction, renovation, and preventive maintenance of all City-owned buildings which currently consist of 32 facilities and approximately 1.9 million square feet. In all of its work, Capital Projects strives to be efficient and responsive to community needs, to enhance sustainable design and energy efficiency, and to improve safety and accessibility for all users.

This Division works closely with the Mayor's Office of Strategic Planning and Community Development (OSPCD), The Department of Public Works (DPW), and other City departments throughout the planning and design phases to develop plans and specifications that meet the City’s needs. We work closely with contractors to ensure that design specifications are met, established timelines and budgets are adhered to, and that all federal, state and local guidelines are met.
