CAM was recently issued the Notification of Findings regarding our Workforce Developement (WFD) commitments for the Bay Brook Elementary/Middle School project.
Our team’s achievements shattered the commitment goals, while successfully meeting the compressed schedule and completing the project at a cost well under the Final Guaranteed Maximum Price.
Congratulations to all that contributed to this significant achievement and the successful completion of this new 21st Century – Baltimore City Public School!
CAM is excited to announce that we have been selected by the Maryland Stadium Authority to provide Pre-Construction & CM services on the upcoming renovation & addition to the historic Montebello Elementary/Middle School (MEMS)!
The current MEMS facility will undergo a full systemic renovation, with a major addition component that will tie into the original historic building.
Our team will partner with Crabtree, Rohrbaugh & Associates – Architects and the entire design team to complete this project for the MSA, 21st Century Schools Baltimore, & Baltimore City Public Schools.
CAM Construction was the Construction Manager for the Bay Brook Elementary/Middle School replacement project, which just achieved LEED Gold Certification. The Gold Certification exceeded original program requirements of LEED Silver for this project.
There were a number of innovative Green Strategies used during both the design and construction phases of Bay Brook’s project.
Here are some of the quantifiable GREEN ACHIEVEMENTS from the project:
83% – 83% of demolition and construction debris was diverted from disposal in landfill through either recycling or salvaging.
39% – Due to the optimization of its HVAC system and lighting equipment, Bay Brook achieved a 39% energy use reduction on an annual cost basis compared to a typical baseline building of similar design.
38% – Through the installation of efficient water fixtures, Bay Brook achieved a 38% reduction in water use compared to a typical baseline building of similar design, on an annual basis.
23% – To cut down on needless transportation emissions, 23% of the project’s total material costs were spent on building materials that were extracted/harvested and manufactured within 500 miles of the project site.
17% – 17% of the project’s total materials cost were spent on building materials with recycled content.

CAM Construction is providing Pre-Construction services to assist the Maryland Food Bank with their upcoming FoodWorks Program Kitchen Expansion & Office Relocation project.
Our team will partner with Cap Ex Advisory Group and PI.KL Studios. Through a unique collaboration with the Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC), the FoodWorks Program offers a fresh start to low-income individuals with 12 weeks of intense culinary training. FoodWorks students learn basic cooking skills while converting fresh produce and other perishable foods into healthy meals for distribution to those in need.
As part of the program, Maryland Food Bank chefs guide students through a curriculum that includes fundamental culinary techniques, menu planning and job-training.
With guidance and support from the Maryland Food Bank, FoodWorks graduates have been hired at leading restaurants and institutional caterers, including Woodberry Kitchen, the Horseshoe Casino, Compass group, The SEED School, and Baltimore County Public School. FoodWorks graduates earn well above the minimum wage.
New Project Update! Check out this video rendering of the historical restoration & adaptive reuse to the Stehli Silk Mill, in Lancaster PA.
Originally built in 1897, the current complex of buildings is on the National Register of Historic Places. Most of the structures are three stories, with the main long structure along Martha Ave. being in excess of 900 feet long, making it the longest structure east of the Mississippi when it was constructed.
Plans call for the development of approximately 130 apartment units, consisting of mostly singles, and some doubles. Additionally, a brew pub is planned for the old women’s cafeteria, which is a single story structure with a clerestory and exposed steel truss roof framing system. Ancillary structures related to the former boiler building may be utilized to provide amenity spaces for the residents, as well as space for some smaller retail or office tenants.
CAM Construction is leading Design-Build services on the project for Lancaster Mills LLC.
Project Update! Take a look at the NEW Connection Center on New Psalmist Baptist Church’s campus, in Baltimore MD.
This new 7,500 sf, multi-purpose center will be primarily used for ministry and fellowship activities. The project includes a large gathering and welcoming hall, administrative offices, outdoor patio, and multiple warming kitchens for event hosting.
When asked about the new facility, the owner said, “This center will be the hub for connection. It will give us the ability to do ministry in an even greater way. The opportunities are now endless. We will be able to create different environments & scenes for various activities.”
CAM Construction served as the Construction Manager on this project, delivering the new facility both on-time & within budget. Our team also assisted the owners by providing Pre-Construction & Cost Estimating services throughout the design process.

CASE STUDY: CAM Construction Teams Up with Eyrus for Compliance and Visibility on Bay-Brook Elementary/Middle School
Eyrus recently published the above Case Study, showcasing our Bay Brook Elementary/Middle School project. Our teams joined forces to develop a site-specific solution as this project had strict OCIP & Workforce Development requirements, and we were presented with an issue on how to efficiently capture and report data related to the project’s on-site personnel.
During pre-construction, we sat down with the eyrus team to develop a solution that automated our reporting process. This generated an efficiency gain to our field staff and allowed the owner/project team to access real-time data through an ad-hoc reporting platform.
Within our initial site/safety briefings, all personnel entering the site were registered and uploaded into the system.
Below is a link to the case study and an excerpt showcasing the benefits to real-time data and how it can assist with compliance, visibility, and efficiency.
“The Eyrus platform was the database for CAM’s personnel tracking and the daily/weekly comparison reports allowed our team to produce the necessary compliance records for the project’s Owner Controlled Insurance Program requirements,” states Mike Marshner with CAM Construction.
In addition, the CAM team streamlined workflows using real-time workforce data from Eyrus to support the on-time delivery of Bay-Brook Elementary/Middle School.
Take a virtual tour! Our team recently celebrated the ribbon cutting and completion of Bay Brook Elementary Middle School in Baltimore, MD.
This replacement school was constructed on an accelerated timeline so that Baltimore City Public Schools could occupy the building after the winter break. A combination of excellent plans, team cooperation and experience, generated over $1.5 million in savings to the owner.
The new 116,000 sf, 800 student facility is designed to promote flexible and interactive learning environments. All three classroom wings, P-K through 2nd grade, 3rd through 5th grade and 6th through 8th grade, contain dedicated Collaborative Learning Areas which are centralized to make the spaces open and easily accessible. Larger core-curriculum spaces consisting of the Cafeteria/Dining, Media Center, Administration, Gymnasium, and Community Space are located on the first floor.
