David M. Consunji was a young concrete inspector when he learned the important elements of construction: proper planning, in-depth and thorough preparation, meticulous implementation, and precise system framework.
Armed with these insights and equipped with his Civil Engineering degree from the University of the Philippines, David M. Consunji built his own contracting company.
D.M. Consunji, Incorporated (DMCI) was founded on December 24, 1954 in a small room in Pandacan, Manila, with the vision of building for a generation of Filipinos.
DMCI began by constructing chicken houses for the Bureau of Animal Industry. From this, DMCI earned a reputation for on-time delivery and quality work. Since then, major projects such as the Tacloban Coca-Cola Plant and the Bacnotan Cement Plant were awarded to the company.
Through continuing research, DMCI became a pioneer in several advanced construction application technology in the Philippines. Taking this into account, DMCI enjoys the patronage of both new and repeat institutional clients whose businesses have benefited from DMCI’s on-or-ahead-of-schedule completion philosophy.
The hundreds of landmark infrastructures constructed by DMCI symbolize the expertise and professionalism of the Filipino engineer. Some of the landmark infrastructures that DMCI built include:
- Mactan Shangri-La Hotel (Mactan, Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu)
- Makati Shangri-la (Makati City)

It has successfully completed over 500 projects to date. These landmark infrastructures symbolize the expertise and professionalism of the Filipino engineer.

Breaking New Ground
In 1999, DMCI spun off its housing division, DMCI Homes, with the aim to build condominiums and house and lots. It began with Lake View Manors(1999), followed by more innovations withHampstead Gardens(2001). Beginning 2003, DMCI Homes became bolder and built East Ortigas Mansions, adding more amenities and facilities for its residents. Villa Alegre Homes and Mayfield Parkfollowed in 2004 with more improvements, which include the installation of elevators at Mayfield Park. As more projects were developed, DMCI Homes as an organization also grew.
In a span of a little over a decade, DMCI Homes has built the most comfortable, resort-type communities for urban dwellers, and continues to do so. Whether they are situated in Quezon City, Taguig City, Mandaluyong City, Pasig City, or Paranaque City, each of the DMCI Homes developments have been built with resort-type amenities and facilities, which include wide open space all around the housing structures, gardens with Koi ponds, rows of trees, and thick foliage.
DMCI Homes’ rapid growth can be attributed to its thrust to continuously delight its customers. It will continue to create urban and destination housing at price ranges that are within comfortable reach of the average Filipino family.
