Comer Construction started work at The Homestead Wakefield Elementary School in Bel Air, Maryland during December 2021. 

The Board of Education of Harford County partnered with J Vinton Schafer & Sons Inc. to manage the project, which involved grading and utility work next to the school in preparation for the placement of temporary classroom trailers to be installed by Modular Genius. 

Comer Construction’s scope of work for the first phase of this project included grading, underground utilities, and stormwater management.

Stormwater Management

Comer Construction protects the environment by expertly implementing approved stormwater management plans. We reduce the impact of development (like the work done for Homestead Wakefield Elementary) through erosion and sediment control measures. Protecting community water sources is a vital part of what we do.

Working under the guidelines of the Maryland Department of the Environment, we are experts in bioretention facilities, detention and retention ponds, wetland restoration and bioswales, and underground stormwater management.
