Said Differently logo, a construction podcast from Barton Malow

Every project has a great story. With over 3,000 team members and almost 100 years of experience in the construction industry, we at Barton Malow have more than a few stories to tell that don’t fit the industry norm. In our podcast, we’re going to be bringing you the untold stories from the construction jobsite – the weird, the wild, and the unconventional paths to success. It’s construction, but it’s Said Differently.

Barton Malow has built more than 225 sports projects throughout North American professional sports leagues and Division 1-3 college athletics. But perhaps no sports project we’ve built is more iconic than Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland. After opening in 1992, the ballpark changed the way ballparks were designed and constructed.

The project is the new Center at Belvedere Senior Center and Hospital Clinic in Charlottesville, Virginia – a 48,000 square foot building that our team finished up in April of 2020. But a big part of this project was creating an inviting outdoor area complete with walking paths and a lawn space for entertaining. One problem our team ran into was a significant amount of invasive vegetation outside of the new structure. So who ya gonna call?
