GC New Project Over $10 Million

Within the inner city of Baltimore, two existing Elementary / Middle Schools were replaced with two (2) new duplicate, 92,000 sf zero-energy facilities.

Located within two miles of each other, the new facilities demonstrate Baltimore’s focus to sustainability and energy-conscious schools. The schools are equipped with student gardens, outdoor classrooms, rooftop solar labs, and vegetative roofs.

Both schools have distinct and individual exterior palettes, however the facilities have identical footprints. The schools were constructed simultaneously, opening on-time during the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. CAM utilized a project management crew that had a Chief Superintendent & Senior Project Manager oversee both sites with individual project management teams at each site accordingly.

Via an allowance, CAM hired a firm (CMTA) that provided an integrated monitoring and building information system for the kids to learn about the facilities energy consumption and specific features throughout the school. Monitoring is available 24/7 through a touchscreen device in the main lobby/atrium-mounted at an appropriate height for children to reach.

Connection Center at New Psalmist Baptist Church Campus wins Award of Excellence!

GC New Project – $1 to $5 Million

CAM won an Award of Excellence for the construction services to the Connection Center at New Psalmist Baptist Church’s campus in Baltimore, MD.

The Connection Center is a new 7,500 sf, multi-purpose center which will be primarily used for ministry and fellowship activities. This center will serve as the congregations hub for connection. The facility includes a large gathering and welcoming hall, administrative offices, and a large banquet kitchen. This project provides the owner with the ability to do ministry in an even greater way.

CAM was hired to assist the church early within the Pre-Construction process. Our team provided detailed cost estimates, constructability reviews, and provided diligent insight in budget reconciliation meetings with the design team.

CAM completed the project on-time during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring a safe on-site working environment each day.
