About Us

Dedicated to those who Design, Develop and Construct, DDC Journal is the title for those with the vision to build North America. The modern construction market constantly challenges those at the heart of the industry to perform to ever-higher levels at each stage of the project process. The competitive nature of the market is such that the success of any project is dependent on the right mix of market analysis, project financing, urban planning, architectural design, materials purchasing and project management. The modern construction market dictates that delivering a project on time and on budget is now considered the minimum requirement.


DDC Journal provides important perspectives on all aspects of the industry. Each quarterly issue brings you, the industry professional, knowledge and information about individuals and companies in the market who are making big strides in all aspects of construction. DDC Journal covers major market segments including commercial, industrial, office, mixed-use, government, healthcare, education, retail and residential. We will bring you information on the latest projects and the inside track on issues at the center of the industry. We feature important topics such as sustainability, green building materials and methods, market trends, financial and economic drivers, advancements in design and architecture, sales and marketing, public/private partnerships and project financing.


We believe that in a time of unparalleled human consumption the combined industries we cover are leading the way in finding solutions to some of the major challenges we face today. That’s why we’ll go directly to the source and talk with decision makers whose philosophies are directly applicable across industry in general.


Reaching 44,000 targeted readers with a wealth of industry expertise, DDC Journal speaks with both senior company executives and key operational personnel including project managers, engineers, architects, planners, construction managers and general contractors.
