Green Energy + Waterfront Pathways

In 2021, DBC formed DBC Energy Group to respond to the region’s emerging energy needs. The mission of DBC and DBC Energy Group is to provide the skilled labor and project management to meet the construction demands of new green infrastructure projects across all sectors, including wind, solar, EV charging stations, electrification of building, installation of battery storage and other technologies as they become mainstream sustainable energy solutions. New York has one of the most ambitious renewable energy goals in the nation, which aims for 70 percent of all electricity to be produced from renewable energy by 2030.

Building on its extensive electrical construction services from its parent company, DBC Energy Group has developed a strong portfolio of projects that demonstrate its flexible and adaptive construction skills to deliver alternative energy solutions, as follows: including:

Signature Projects:

Waterfront and Marine Construction Services

DBC also performs Waterfront and Marine Construction services as part of its work for both DBC and its energy group. The firm has completed numerous waterfront projects for large construction management firms for public sector projects such as Brooklyn Army Terminal Pier 4 Power and Water Upgrade and Raised Shorelines Program at Old Howard Beach in Queens both for the NYC Economic Development Corporation. DBC is currently in the process of completing the Reconstruction of Berth 6 for the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corp.

DBC completed The Offshore Wind (OSW) Waterfront Pathways launched by NYC Economic Development Corporation to counter documented disparities in public procurement by increasing opportunities for minority-owned, women-owned, and disadvantaged business enterprises (M/W/DBEs) in the OSW and waterfront industries.

Firms that complete the OSW Waterfront Pathways Program are prequalified and competitive against similarly sized businesses for NYCEDC contracts to meet NYC’s growing clean energy needs. DBC is matching its earlier waterfront and alternative energy work with EDC’s program requirements and new opportunities in this sector.

DBC was the subcontractor for Skanska performing electrical work for the NYC Economic Development Corporation (EDC) at the Brooklyn Army Terminal at Pier 4. Work included installing panelboards and a transformer on a new structural steel platform, electrical conduit, wire and water service with freeze protection under the pile deck, and installation of two new marine power and water service pedestals on the pier. Work also included having to use a floating dock and coordinate the work during low tide in order to do work under the pile deck.
