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.
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.

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 with Hampstead 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 Park followed 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.
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.
