Project Overview

This historic high school building was originally built in 1923 in the Clifton Park neighborhood of Baltimore City. To renovate and expand the building, the Maryland Stadium Authority issued its first design/build procurement. Southway Builders & MCN Build partnered with architect Hord Coplan Macht to complete the design and construction for the renovation/addition project on an accelerated schedule.

Our Approach

We provided the cost estimating for four alternatives during the study phase. Once awarded as a design/build, we began to research and design the site. To accommodate the building and adjacent activities, MK prepared an additional subdivision to the lot for expansion. New sidewalks improve pedestrian access and safety. Infrastructure improvements included new parking, drop-off, and emergency access areas. Additional stormwater management practices were implemented to accommodate the additional impervious area of the gymnasium addition and bring the site up to current standards.

The Results

Because of an opportunity to overmanage the impervious area of the Fairmount-Harford Building site, we proposed the creation of an MDE credit bank for treated impervious area on behalf of the Maryland Stadium Authority. This provides flexibility for future City Schools projects, as these consistently tight sites often struggle to achieve the requirements of stormwater management regulations.

Baltimore City / Parks & People Foundation Henrietta Lacks Park

Newly renamed Henrietta Lacks Education Park (previously Ambrose Kennedy Park) is located at Eager Street and Harford Avenue in East Baltimore. This lively community park anchors the Johnson Square neighborhood.


Anne Arundel County Public Schools Crofton Complex

Our civil engineering services were instrumental in the multi-facility campus of the Crofton Complex Master Plan and high school. The 154-acre site design highlights the site's unique amenities, including wetlands and a stream.


Community College of Baltimore County Center For Health Professions

CCBC's newest building will house all health-related academic programs. MK provided cost estimating support on this project from the very beginning, through the decision to demolish the existing damaged building and use the opportunity to unite the entire Health Professions program.
