An electrical fire virtually devastated the social hall/kitchen/restrooms and storage areas on the lower level of this church, smoke from the fire permeated the entire building making it difficult to worship or work. The newly renovated Church is now “better than ever before” fulfilling the dream of their former Pastor, Churchill Wortherly ,who had once been the head of purchasing for Morgan State University and sadly passed away before the project was completed.
This small chapel dedicated to people considering religious life is highlighted by an antique monstrance which was literally fished from Loch Raven reservoir and gifted to the Archdiocese of Baltimore. All work was completed without a single interruption to the ongoing masses and activities of our nation’s historic first Roman Catholic Cathedral.
This operational home for Baltimore’s elderly poor is run by the Little Sisters of the Poor Baltimore. The chapel is used multiple times per week by residents, the Sisters themselves and families of residents who celebrate birthdays, anniversaries or the life of their loved ones who reside at St. Martin’s. Great care and sensitivity was required not to disrupt the lives of the residents or their on-site religious caregivers. The finished chapel renovation transforms the worship space originally constructed in 1966.
Charles Lapp son of Field Superintendent Jeff Lapp, won ABC Baltimore’s recent written and hands-on competition in the field of carpentry. He followed in his brother’s footsteps who won the competition 5 years earlier. He will travel to the National Craft Championships.
Waverly PreK-8 School is a multi-phased, 3 story 130,000 square foot building including an 11,000 square foot underground parking garage. This LEED Silver Project was the first new Baltimore City School built in decades.
Special LEED features included a green vegetative roof, sunshades, extensive use of natural lighting, and high efficiency building systems. Post bid, CAM was requested to add Solar Panels to the facility, and in a design build delivery, ultimately chose to utilize roofs on both Phase 1 & 2 structures to optimize exposure.
The school houses an extensive media center, and a three story feature atrium entry which separates the cafeteria/auditorium and kitchen for community uses.
The 135-year-old Maryland House of Correction was one of the oldest maximum-security prisons still in use when it closed in 2007.
In 2011, the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services, with CAM Construction embarked on one of the largest inmate construction projects in the country — deconstructing—rather than outright demolishing— the structure.
More than 120 inmates were trained in different areas of construction, including asbestos removal and confined space practices. In the end, the decision to deconstruct rather than demolish, saved an estimated $5 million; 90 percent of the materials were reused. Including bricks, which were meticulously removed one at a time.
For former employees, or anyone interested in owning a piece of Maryland History, bricks from the former House of Correction are now available to purchase for $7.
CAM’s recent renovation of the adoration chapel in Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Baltimore is highlighted in the article below.
Little Sisters of Baltimore are celebrating significant checks totaling over $350,000 from BGE Smart Energy Saver’s program. The check was a blessing arriving on the feast day of their foundress, Jeanne Jugan. CAM Construction worked closely with the engineering firm of Spears, Votta, the Little Sisters and BGE, implementing energy efficient equipment during this design build project. This cooperation has yielded significant project savings from grants, rebates and incentives over the past 4 years.

(Baltimore Sun) Baltimore County marked the start of work Thursday on a long-delayed library and community college facility in Owings Mills — construction designed to jump-start a billion-dollar project that includes homes, stores and offices. Promoted as an economic engine, the project near the Metro station was proposed in 1998 as a “Main Street” hub where residents would live, shop and play. But development got only as far as the massive parking garage, built in 2007, that overlooks Interstate 795.

Jordan Lapp, fourth year ABC Baltimore carpenter apprentice and son of Field Superintendent Jeff Lapp, won ABC Baltimore’s recent written and hands-on competition in the field of carpentry and will be competing in the upcoming ABC Nationals Carpentry trials.
ABC is the nation’s largest commercial construction industry association and has more than 600 member firms in the Baltimore chapter alone. This year’s nationals will be held in San Antonio TX from April 2nd through 15th and Jordan will compete with representatives from the member firms of ABC’s seventy five U.S. chapters.

CAM congratulates Jordan on his achievements and looks forward to him placing very high or indeed winning the upcoming event. Congratulations on a job well done!
