Last month, the Maryland Food Bank Renovations and Addition Project managed by CAM Construction was featured in an article by the Baltimore Building Congress & Exchange. This write-up, which includes and interview from CAM Project Manager Everett Chambers, details the numerous challenges encountered and creative solutions applied to complete the project. For a more detailed look at the nuances of the Maryland Food Bank project, you can view the full article at the link below.


Last week, CAM Construction had the honor of hosting Gov. Wes Moore for a tour of the Baltimore City District Courthouse, which is well into its extensive renovation. A small conference was held, where Governor Moore and representatives from Bushey Feight Morin Architects Inc., the Maryland Department of General Services, and CAM Construction had the opportunity to speak on the importance of the project and its impact on the surrounding community, as well as Minority Business participation (over 45% of our contract). Steve Hubbard of REEDBIRD STEEL LLC shared his personal story of growing up in Baltimore and we appreciate his company’s performance on this very challenging steel project.

These meetings are critical to communicating the larger impact that these projects have on not only the client, but the neighborhood itself, and CAM Construction is proud to lead this endeavor and share the vision that is being created for the District Courthouse.

Selective demolition at the Chick Webb Memorial Recreation Center is almost complete! CAM Construction is overseeing the extensive renovations and addition at the historic Chick Webb Rec Center, which will revitalize the local East Baltimore neighborhood and provide a pivotal hub space for the community to gather. Currently, refurbishment of the pool is underway, the outside is nearly on sub-grade, and piles are being installed; additionally, almost 80% of underground utilities are in place. We look forward to providing more updates on the construction progress as it continues.

Critical work at St. Joseph’s Parish in Cockeysville is currently underway. CAM recently built a coffered ceiling system with a central dome, with a radiused cornice around the perimeter of the sanctuary. The craftsmen J A ARGETAKIS CONTRACTING CO performed this artisanal framing & drywall work from a suspended scaffolding platform. We believe this striking design will enhance the awe-inspiring services that the church will hold once mass resumes in this space.


CAM Construction recently attended an Open House on Wednesday, October 25th to welcome Jeremiah Program into their new suite at The Gateway at Station North. CAM provided design/build CM services to help the Minneapolis-based non-profit open its 10th regional office, where they will carry out their mission of helping single mothers escape poverty and put themselves through college.
The nearly 7,000 sqft fit-out included a Board Room/Training Area, Administrative & Executive Offices, Huddle Rooms, a Family Coach Suite, a Break Area, and a Children’s Play Area. The mix of private offices, meeting rooms, and open collaboration areas, in conjunction with brightly colored walls and a generous glassline, turned this long-vacant shell space into a warm and inviting destination for the staff and beneficiaries of Jeremiah Program. CAM worked closely with Jeremiah Program to assist them with architectural layouts and designs, which not only resulted in cost savings but also provided a final product that closely aligned with what Jeremiah Program wanted and needed for the space. CAM also helped Jeremiah achieve their goals of maximizing natural light and views over the Jones Falls, providing a safe destination for mentorship and consulting, and creating flexibility for future expansion of their programs over their 10-year lease. In recognition of the services provided, the Jeremiah Program also received a citation from Senator Chris Hollen, congratulating the organization on its one year anniversary. We are proud to have delivered essential space for an organization that will become an asset for our community.


CAM Construction is proud to have attended the “Grand Re-Opening” ceremony of the newly renovated and upgraded Maryland Food Bank! CAM served as Construction Manager at Risk for ~21,000 sqft of interior expansions and additions that took place at their 100k sqft headquarters facility in Halethorpe, MD. This project will improve both the capacity of the Food Bank to serve our local communities in desperate need of assistance, provide educational opportunities to certify new chefs and kitchen managers from underserved communities, and greatly enhance the administrative office space needed for the nearly 200 hardworking men and women who allow the Food Bank to execute their vision.

Our scope of the work included a substantial Kitchen Expansion and Renovation, building a new Loading and Receiving Queue, Dry Storage Area, state-of-the-art Conference Rooms, Private Offices, and Collaboration Areas, a new Break Room & Training Area, and a New Celebrated Entry to the sorting warehouse for volunteers and employees. This project was extremely challenging given the need to establish a temporary kitchen, insert completely sound-proof mezzanine structures within an occupied facility, interface additions with a pre-engineered building, and keep the Food Bank completely operational over the course of construction, given the mission-critical work that they carry out on a daily basis. Check out some photos of the new space and be sure to stay tuned for more updates on CAM projects!

District Courthouse Renders!

Check out these stunning renderings of the future Baltimore City District Courthouse by BFM Architects! The side-by-side images of the Courthouse detail both the incredible work CAM has done so far and provide a sense of scale and complexity of the exterior facade construction to come. A sophisticated metal panel and curtainwall glass system, plus an entirely new roof system, will be installed to support energy-efficient equipment.
