Graceland & Holabird win “Climate Champion” Award from the US Green Building Council
CAM is pleased to announce that Holabird Academy and Graceland Park/O’Donnell Heights Elementary/Middle School recently won a “Climate Champion” award from USGBC Maryland, for a LEED Zero certified project that “demonstrates advanced design solutions and approaches to addressing climate change.” We served as the GC on this highly complex, $75 million pair of sister schools in east Baltimore, a project which was made possible through close collaboration with our talented colleagues at Grimm + Parker Architects and Baltimore City Public Schools.
Our project was honored at the 2022 Community Leader Awards ceremony, hosted at the historic Clifton Mansion in North/Central Baltimore City. Special shoutout to Amy Upton, Paul Bradshaw, Maurice Gaskins, and Cynthia Smith for all of their contributions to this endeavor!
CAM Sponsors Golf Outing for Walter S. Thomas Scholarship Fund
CAM was proud to sponsor the 6th Annual Walter S. Thomas, Sr. Golf Classic, held at Waverly Woods last week. We had a great time playing alongside Taber J. Small and Sharif J. Small, and all of our friends at New Psalmist Baptist Church. New Psalmist has been a valued client of ours for the past 15 years, having completed two major projects for them – their main sanctuary and worship hall, as well as the brand new Connection Center building which will serve as a vibrant community gathering space reuniting parishioners in the wake of the pandemic.
Bishop Thomas’s Scholarship Fund helps make high school children’s college dreams into a reality, and this is a cause that we can all get behind. Learn more about the organization here: https://www.wstscholarshipfund.org/home
CAM Named to Baltimore’s “Middle Market Leaders” List
CAM was proud to be honored in last month’s Middle Market Leaders awards hosted by the BBJ at the Center Club. Mid-sized firms such as ours are the lifeblood of the local economy, and it was an honor to share the room with such good company across a wide spectrum of industries.
Thanks to all of the owners, architects, and subcontractors who we’ve worked in close collaboration with over the past few years. Our clients and industry partners have been integral to our success.
We hope to continue making a strong impact on the built environment throughout this state over the years to come.

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.
