Construction & Design Professionals

The Department’s Public Works Bureaus coordinate and oversee the design and construction of all non-highway capital construction projects for the Commonwealth. The scope of responsibilities includes new construction and all types of alterations and renovations to existing commonwealth properties and capital improvement projects for all state agencies. Projects range from dams and sewage treatment plants to buildings such as prisons, offices, and laboratories. 

The Department also administers the selection of architects and engineers, advertises projects for bid, obtains construction bids, executes construction contracts and manages budgets for construction projects. The Public Works Bureaus maximize efficiency and monitor performance through a series of criteria focused on reducing change order rates, increasing the number of construction projects completed on time and on budget and reducing the number of claims filed against the Commonwealth.
