DCC at Work

DCC and DND jointly piloting Integrated Project Delivery

It's ironic that one of the oldest armoured regiments of the Canadian Army — the Royal Canadian Dragoons, formed in 1883 and based out of CFB Petawawa — is set to benefit from one of the newest, most transformative contracting models in the construction industry today.

Fostering relations with First Nations at UXO legacy sites

Since 2005, DCC has actively supported DND at former military training areas across Canada, known as legacy sites, to reduce safety risks posed by Unexploded Explosive Ordnance (UXO)—military explosives that were expended but failed to function properly.

Keeping to the schedule key to projects such as Trenton's Hangar 6

Time is of the essence on construction projects. Sticking to the schedule while being flexible enough to accommodate unforeseen circumstances are essential daily elements of the work of DCC coordinators.
