Construction project planning and execution

We started Horizon Construction because our clients were paying too much to high-priced commercial construction firms for their services.

By providing all necessary services through one competent, experienced project manager, we’ve been able to save clients up to 30% on project costs, ranging from site location to architectural and engineering design to actual building and remodeling. These services include:

  • Site  identification and acquisition
  • Infrastructure planning
  • Facility planning  exercises
  • Architectural and engineering work
    • Conceptual  designs
    • Project  budget estimates
    • Complete construction documents
  • Local, county, and state agency permits and negotiations
  • Solicit bids and assign contracts
  • Oversee construction

Mark brings extensive nonprofit and construction experience to his role as Director of Horizon Construction. After nearly 20 years as a senior staff person overseeing building projects for DNREC, Mark worked for Schell Brothers, a major regional construction firm. He then served as executive director for two statewide land preservation organizations before helping form Horizon Construction in 2016.

Since then, HCS has overseen over $40 million of nonprofit projects, each benefitting from Mark’s personal care and attention to quality, detail, and cost.

During the last several years, Mark assisted Horizon clients with site acquisition for the Lewes Public Library; the complete renovation of the Lewes History Museum facility; new entrance roads, parking, and event facilities for Fort Miles Historical Association; design and expansion of the Lewes Senior Activity Center. Mark also oversaw the construction of the entire campus for Sussex Montessori School and recently completed major renovations to the iconic St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Lewes and is beginning plans for a new church community center. His latest major projects involve site acquisition and project planning for a new Rehoboth Beach Public Library and the construction of the model pallet village for Springboard in Georgetown, DE.
