Relationships Based On
Trust & Authenticity

The needs of our clients vary widely in project size, level of complexity and project scope — but they all have this in common: They want a trustworthy partner known for a commitment to excellence that enables them to achieve their business and community goals. Our recipe for success starts with a solid strategy and a committed, talented team. From there, we collaborate and learn from one another — leveraging the core skills of each member of our team. It’s important to us that we get it right the first time — not just during construction, but from the planning stage through completion and beyond.

Michael Martin
Live Green Landscape Associates

SEH did a full site package for us. This included sediment control, utilities, mass grading, paving, and last but not least, widening a state highway.

Our experience was exceptional. They worked against the clock and weather on this entire project. I quite frankly do not believe another site contractor would have been able to get this project completed.

SEH put in Saturdays and nights as needed to stay on time and budget. I would recommend them to anyone who needs their project done on time and budget at a high quality.

Gary Koch
Koch Homes
President & Owner

SEH has been the general contractor for numerous residential site development projects in Anne Arundel County over the past several years. These projects have included single-family detached, townhouses and apartments. SEH provided the management and oversight for all aspects of the site development, including clearing, grading, installation of all utilities and storm water management facilities, as well as curb, gutter and asphalt paving. They have been excellent to work with and very competitive with their pricing. Everyone that we have dealt with has been professional, courteous and sensitive to meeting delivery schedules. They have stood behind their work and expeditiously followed through with any concerns or requests that we have had during the development process. In short, I can recommend SEH for quality site development at competitive prices.

Jared Spahn
Old Town Construction, LLC

The success of any project is dependent upon quality subcontractors. SEH time and time again has outperformed their responsibilities by providing quality supervision and superior workmanship in everything they do.

SEH has performed site work including demolition, site grading, water and sewer installation SWM, stor, drains, pervious and impervious paving systems for us.

David Polonsky
Atapco Properties
Development Director

SEH was our site contractor on a 7 phase residential lot development project. The project started in 2017 and was just completed. We had 424 town homes. In addition, they were the site contractor to our General contractor on Howard Square Verde Apartments – 299 LEED Platinum Apartments, and are currently the site contractor to our GC on the Howard Square Verde II Apartments and retail project which is 2 buildings with 344 apartments, two garages and 21,500 sf of retail.

We have been very pleased with SEH. They have consistently met all of their commitments. When challenges have arisen on site, they have been part of the solution and always focus on mitigating extra expense and time. They have held their budget numbers through all 7 phases of the work through 8 years. As subcontractors to our apartment GC’s on two projects, they have performed well and with no conflicts. I always know that if I have an issue, I can always reach the president of the company if needed, and he always gets us the resources or answers we need right away.

We have had the opportunity to rebid the work on this project and have never had any reason to do so. SEH keeps their commitments, provides competitive pricing and holds the line on escalation over time. Both of the apartment projects were bid by the general contractors’ and SEH was low and competitive. They were awarded both projects by the GC’s Lend Lease on the first project, and Harkins on the Second.

I would recommend SEH to anyone, as we have had an excellent working relationship with them, and I look forward to future projects together.

Christopher Murn
Murn Development

SEH has completed the site work for many of the apartment communities that I have developed. My experience has been that SEH has done great work, ahead of schedule and within our budgetary constraints. Additionally, SEH works well with our civil engineer to optimize the grading of the sites to lessen the financial impact of any haul off/haul in.

I can always count on SEH to do a great job and to have my best interests in mind!

Jeff Driscoll

Vice President, Land Development

SEH has been a full-service site development contractor for Toll Brothers for over five years, primarily in the locations of Anne Arundel County, Baltimore County, and Harford County. They have consistently demonstrated an ability to deliver projects on time and within the contracted scope.

SEH can always be counted on to deliver quality work. They’ve become an expert in the construction of bio-retention facilities, and their paving work is second-to- none. I especially appreciate how involved and accessible their upper management team is, and would highly recommend SEH to anyone.

We’ve worked with SEH on a number of projects over the years. They are a team player and are always willing to help solve problems if they come up. Their competitive pricing helps CBG secure more work and pass on savings to the developer. If an issue ever comes up, I always feel like I can call Mike or Scot and we can come to a resolution over the phone.
