Welcome to

Planning Design and Construction

Due to the recent order to shelter in place from the Governor's Office, PDC is halting all active projects on campus that do not serve as an essential function for the campus. We are actively monitoring the situation and will adjust our schedule as new information is made available. We are working with our off-campus consultants to keep projects moving forward where we can. Please email us directly with any concerns and we will promptly provide more information.

 Thank you for your patience in these trying times.
