Dr. John B. Gaddis, Ed.D, Superintendent of Schools, Somerset County Public Schools

“Throughout the design process, the team was communicative and constructive in helping keep the project within budget. Oak’s extensive experience with school construction makes them an incredible asset to us as a small County taking on such a large project. In all of our interactions with Oak, the team has been transparent, professional, and dedicated to the success of our project. They are committed to meeting our goals of stimulating local economic growth and providing opportunities to share the construction process with our students. They have even gone above and beyond their contracted construction management services and become involved in our other schools’ student activities and community. ”


Kimberly Salamy, Manager Capital Construction,        Anne Arundel County Public Schools

“The quality of their performance, the team’s dedication, and their level of commitment has earned Oak Contracting the distinction of being a trusted advisor to AACPS’ Planning, Design and Construction staff.  Oak Contracting’s extensive experience in building school facilities and their ability to provide quality personnel have made a significant contribution to the success of our program, and we would highly recommend them for future work.”


Christopher Morton, Supervisor of Facilities Management, Harford County Public Schools

“Your firm demonstrated its ability to formulate questions, access information, work collaboratively, think critically and communicate effectively. We would not have been as successful without your support. It means a great deal to be able to work with an organization which exhibits a high level of quality and professionalism.”


Roger Fritz, Director Facilities Division/Construction Management, Frederick County Public Schools

“Oak consistenently delivers a superior product but I believe that what sets them apart from their competitors is the quality of the people they employ.

They have always demonstrated and employed a professional and ethical means of doing business and it’s our pleasure to have them as a part of the construction process for FCPS.”


Michael G. Schoeffield, Director, Facilities Management, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

“Oak’s approach gave us a great deal of confidence in their ability to help up plan for the expedient execution of the work. We are delighted with the finished product which was delivered ahead of schedule and below budget. We would not hesitate to highly recommend them and would gladly invite them back to our campus. They are clearly in a very select group of the best qualified construction manager in the Mid-Atlantic region.”


James Song, Director Department of Facilities Management, Montgomery County Public Schools

“MCPS finds that their strongest attribute to the project is their “team” approach to the successful completion of the project., notwithstanding their abilities in cost estimating, preconstruction/planning, scheduling, management, administration, coordination and contractor supervision. Their overall comprehensive approach to the unique challenges of school construction, whether it’s a new school or phased occupied renovation, coupled with their ability to create contractor scopes which compel performance are what always puts them on our short list of qualified construction managers.”


Joe Price, Capital Improvements, Worcester County Public Schools

“It has been my extreme pleasure working with Doug Eder over the past eighteen months. Doug’s integrity, construction knowledge, business acumen, and, more importantly, his honesty, are unmatched.”
