Employing years of construction experience, DCMI offers Construction Management Services specialized to the needs of our clients. The best way for us to explain the array of projects we manage is to provide a quick summary of what we’ve been working on the last few years.
Capital Improvement project at the Maryland Masonic Homes and Grand Lodge of Maryland in Cockeysville, Maryland. DCMI was engaged to perform a Property Condition Survey which parlayed into management of a two-year capital improvement campaign to upgrade critically deficient systems including replacement of core mechanical systems. DCMI conceptualized, designed and managed the renovation of a 500-person ballroom and bathroom facilities. DCMI managed the engineering, purchase and installation of a 1500kW generator to support the adult-care use.
Managed tenant-improvements for branch expansion of a local community lender in Manassas, Virginia.
Commercial building core and shell renovation and tenant improvements in Largo, Maryland for end use as a local lender’s headquarters. DCMI was initially engaged to perform a Property Condition Survey prior to the acquisition to determine capital improvement requirements. Fast forward three years and the client requested our services as an Owner’s Representative during planning and construction of their corporate headquarters. We were then engaged by the same client to conceptualize and improve a vacant bank branch in Newark, New Jersey.
DCMI has also dedicated resources to support other clients with specialized projects including cost engineering and construction management of small commercial and residential projects.
DCMI is a long-time supporter of the Family Shelter Services [FSS] in Warrenton, Virginia. FSS offers emergency shelter services to housing insecure families as well as two-year transitional housing thru their Vint Hill program. As participants graduate from the program, the units require rehabilitation prior to new occupancy. We were engaged to cost engineer and manage the more intensive projects and recently have begun performing general construction improvements.
SHOWCASE – JANUARY 2023
In this month’s showcase, we are highlighting the shed we donated to Family Shelter Services [FSS] in honor of our long-time employee and friend, Anne Brown. Anne was the reason DCMI became involved with FSS; she suggested we sponsor a local family for Christmas. Anne passed away in 2021 and we wanted to do something to honor her so we asked the Executive Director what the shelter needed. They needed a shed to store luggage and other items to free up bed space within the shelter. Prior to purchasing the shed we needed to confirm it was an allowable installation in accordance with Town of Warrenton requirements. We obtained the permit and the shed was installed in July 2022. A fence was constructed at the rear of the shed as a trash enclosure. We think Anne would really like her shed. It is making a difference, just like she did.
