DDC was founded by David Oakes to provide a full service experience to clients who were requesting a more efficient way to deliver projects. 25 years ago, David founded his first company, CESO, to provide engineering services to a wide variety of markets across the county. With the addition of key personnel and client needs, DDC was founded to create the full service delivery of projects from creation to completion. This expertise in construction and engineering allows for seamless delivery of projects across the county.

Community Involvement:

DDC places an emphasis on giving back to the communities in which we work. Our belief is this action is a critical part to being a good steward of the opportunities we have been given. Our company and employees enjoy giving back.
