• The American Model

    NDC HEDC has produced more than $2.0 billion worth of projects for local governments using the American Model Approach to public-private partnership.

  • Public Benefit

    NDC HEDC helps governments build infrastructure—municipal buildings, parking garages, student housing, biomedical research facilities—while saving money, creating jobs, and strengthening the local tax base.

  • Cost Savings

    NDC HEDC emphasizes the “Public” in Public-Private Partnerships. Working on behalf of a governmental entity, we strive to reduce cost without reducing the quality of the building.

  • Our Approach

    For us, Public-Private Partnership does not mean privatization. In our approach, the public facility is developed and managed by NDC on the public’s behalf.

  • Green Building

    We are focused on green building and have built and maintained more than 10 LEED-certified buildings, including the Center for Urban Waters, a LEED Platinum research laboratory and office building.


With the public purpose at the center of our mission, we believe emphasizing the “Public” in a Public-Private Partnership is possible and necessary. It is our intent to bring the Public sector and the Private sector together in a truly collaborative process that maximizes the benefits of combining private sector expertise with the benefits of public sector financing to develop public facilities.
